“The best yogurt ever. Fun to prepare.” —Jad, recipe tester, age 9
In small bowl, whisk yogurt and honey until smooth. Spoon one-quarter of the yogurt-honey mixture into each glass. Top with ¼ cup berries, followed by 2 tablespoons granola.
Creamy Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and crunchy granola make a delicious and wholesome start to the day or a great afternoon snack—and layering them in a glass makes this simple combination feel like a special occasion. Greek yogurt makes the creamiest parfait, but there’s no rule against using another kind of yogurt. You can use regular yogurt, but since it is thinner than Greek yogurt (extra liquid has been drained from Greek yogurt so that it’s really thick and creamy), the layers may not stay as well defined. We like the color contrast between plain (unflavored) yogurt and the fruit, but if you use sweetened or flavored yogurt, skip the honey.
Fruit is a great way start the day. For a special breakfast, you might want to make fruit salad. (Don’t worry—no lettuce needed.) A fruit salad is a mixture of several kinds of fruit, each cut into bite-size pieces. It’s nice to sweeten the fruit with a drizzle of honey or even good maple syrup. But don’t use more than a drizzle—the fruit is already plenty sweet. Toss the fruit to make sure it’s evenly coated with the honey. The honey will even prevent the fruit from turning brown. The best fruit salad has two or three kinds of fruit. Berries require little or no prep, and precut melon and pineapple are great choices.
