Healthy Greek Yogurt Parfait with Summer Fruit

This healthy Greek yogurt parfait is the perfect summer treat! I love summer fruits like strawberries and blueberries so we add them to a lot of summer desserts. Sometimes, we pick fresh berries at our local berry patch. Other times, we buy them from the farm stand or the grocery store. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Healthy Greek Yogurt Parfait

So, why Greek yogurt? Greek yogurt is higher in protein than regular yogurt and will help fill you up. This is perfect when you’re looking for a healthy breakfast or a healthy snack. Greek yogurt is lower in lactose and contains probiotic cultures. I use plain, unflavored Greek yogurt to avoid the added sugars. You can use any variety that you like in this recipes.

I serve this in a Mason jar because we have so many left over from canning. However, if you’re planning on this for a summer party, you may want to use glass parfait cups.
