When my mother-in-law (Gran to our kids) had us over for brunch, I especially enjoyed her yogurt parfaits. They were refreshing, light and wholesome. I made a few changes to her recipe and came up with this sweet, crunchy and nutty variation. Yum!
Here’s a parfait that’s perfect for a garden or patio party. Tea adds a wonderfully unexpected flavor to gelatin. And kids will have fun finding the cherry at the bottom.—Teena Petrus, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
"When I asked drop-in company to stay for dinner, I happened to have all the ingredients on hand to create this elegant layered berry treat," recalls Andree Garrett Of Plymouth, Michigan. "Everyone thought this low-sugar dessert was yummy and refreshing.
"This dish is not only easy but very elegant," relates Renee Zimmer of Gig Harbor, Washington. "I got the recipe from a church cooking class and now fix it often, with rave reviews. You can serve it in bowls, but I always get more oohs and aahs when I put it in lovely goblets."
With pineapples, raspberries and bananas, these yogurt treats from Adell Meyer are a bright and cheerful morning side dish. The Madison, Wisconsin reader whips them up in no time for before-or-after-school snacks.
"I created this recipe to showcase one of my favorite garden plants - rhubarb," says Diane Halferty of Corpus Christi, Texas. "My four children are grown, but I enjoy fixing this colorful dessert for my grandchildren."

"I often make two different single-serving recipes," Dottye reports. "Yogurt Parfait is a delicious breakfast or luncheon treat, especially with wafers on the side."
