How to make fruit and yogurt parfait recipe:
First, stir in the honey with the plain yogurt.
Spoon yogurt into each of the 6 jars.
Slice the strawberries into slices. Place one strawberry, sliced, into each mason jar.

Tips for yogurt parfait recipe:
If I am making these in advance, I leave the granola off. It will get soggy so it is easy to just add the granola right before eating.
However, if I am eating the parfait right away, it’s fine to go ahead and put the granola layers.

We love making yogurt parfaits for a healthy breakfast. The drizzle of honey give the plain yogurt the perfect amount of sweetness.
You can also use vanilla yogurt to mix with the fruit and granola. My kids think this is the perfect breakfast and we all really enjoy it.
The mason jars make it so convenient and we meal prep a bunch of these at the beginning of the week. It is fun to let the kids help and everyone can form an assembly line.
Someone can add the creamy yogurt, another person can add the fresh fruit or fresh berries and someone else can top with granola. Let the kids help for lots of sweet memories.
Sometimes, if we are feeling indulgent, I will add chocolate chips. Yum!
