Cherry-Berry Yogurt Parfait

by | Read time: 1 minute

It starts with yogurt or, in this case, vegan yogurt. On its own, it’s a little plain, so you like to add toppings. Lately, a spoonful of granola just doesn’t cut it. Nuts and fruit will do the trick, adding substance, nutrients, sweetness and a bit of crunch to your dish. In your small glass jar, smooth meets crunchy and breakfast becomes more like a dessert.
