Mr. Lazy Cook Tweaks the High Fiber Parfait Recipe – For the Last Time (?)

I wrote my High Fiber Parfait recipe right after we started the blog. I said I loved it, ate it every day and would rather eat it than a bowl of ice cream.

My parfait never looked anything like this masterpiece

That is still true, but I have recently become concerned about my intake of dairy products and since this had close to two cups of yogurt and about a 1/4 cup of kefir, I decided that was too much dairy for me to eat every day.

Hence the new recipe. I have eliminated all the yogurt and the kefir and just use one cup of soy milk. In the previous tweak I used skimmed milk. Now it is completely dairy-free.

While not as artistic, Mr. Lazy Cook’s looks pretty tasty …

With the yogurts and kefir eliminated, it is probably more accurate to call my parfait a bowl of high fiber cereal with strawberries and blueberries.

Recipe
Add one cup of Kashi’s Go Lean cereal (much like granola)
Add a couple of strawberries cut into small pieces
If I have fresh blueberries around, I add a handful
Pour the soy milk over this, stir a while and serve. The stirring is necessary to get all the Go Lean soaked with the soy milk. Otherwise, it can be hard to chew.

Instead of the 478 calories in the original, this comes in just under 300 calories. Still delicious and nutritious!

Editor’s Note: I still make this wonderful parfait regularly, BUT I no longer use Kashi’s Go Lean or any other Kashi product since they employ GMO ingredients. Just substitute a granola of your choice and this recipe stands.

    • HI, Colline –

      Thanks for the comment. It is certainly a great meal. I just love it for my second meal of the day when I come in from biking. It is a wonderful pick-me-up.

  5. Yogurt and kefir are two great sources of probiotics. I haven’t given up on these foods yet. I also tolerate some GMO products, depending on the genes used. You certainly have covered chia seeds thoroughly! It’s taken me a while to experiment with chia. I’m not a big grain eater so was dubious. But I loved how my chia pudding turned out and will use them more frequently – great fiber source!
