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! —Angela Keller, Newburgh, Indiana

"I love this recipe & my husband asks for it as soon as strawberry season hits. Delicious and refreshing. I've made it for brunch, a healthy mid-day snack, and it even makes a yummy dessert!"
