Yogurt Parfait

I telecommute, so I usually get a few more minutes of sleep than Dr. O. (He may think this is an understatement.) I try to get up early at least once a week to make him breakfast, though. One of my favorite quick, no-mess recipes is Yogurt Parfait from the January/February 2005 issue of Everyday Food.

There are only three ingredients: plain low-fat yogurt, apple butter, and a banana. I spooned 1/2 cup of yogurt into a glass, topped it with 3 tablespoons of apple butter, and then topped that off with half of a banana, thinly sliced.


That’s it! This takes about 3 minutes to assemble, and it’s a great way to start the day.

TIPS: The recipe calls for plain low-fat yogurt, but Dr. O and I like to use vanilla low-fat yogurt for extra flavor.

If you’ve never purchased apple butter before, you can find it by the peanut butter and jam in the grocery store. It has a really nice “fall” flavor with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, usually.
