Pineapple Yogurt Parfaits

Yogurt seems to be one of those foods that often get overlooked. Everyone loves it once they eat it, but many people tend to not remember to add it to food until it’s too late. Instead of making it something to remember, why not make it the star of the dish? With this Pineapple Yogurt Parfait, you’ll never forget your love of yogurt ever again!

Adding fruit and yogurt together is always a great idea. I love to add pineapple, but there are also options to switch it up and have strawberries, bananas, and even peaches as well. Whatever fruit is in season can be a great way to add some variety to your yogurt parfaits.

I love waking up in the morning and starting my day with this Pineapple Yogurt Parfait. It’s just the right amount of sweetness to make me feel like I’m indulging, without the actual guilt of added sugar and calories. Anytime I’m wanting to feel like I’m eating a dessert whenever I want, this yogurt parfait is my go to without a doubt!

Why not join me in making it your indulgence, too?

Pineapple Yogurt Parfaits Recipe

 PINEAPPLE YOGURT PARFAITS INGREDIENTS

Ok, let’s talk ingredients! To make these pineapple yogurt parfaits, you will need:

Pineapple Yogurt: If you can’t find pineapple yogurt, vanilla yogurt works great too.

Granulated Sugar: Just a tablespoon for sweetness.

Ground Cinnamon: A pinch of cinnamon.

Granola: I  just bought my favorite store bought granola.

Mandarin Oranges: Make sure to drain the can well. You could also use fresh mandarin oranges.

Pineapple Tidbits: These are a must have!

Fresh Raspberries: Pineapple and raspberry are so great together.

Macadamia Nuts: Any nuts would work.

Coconut Flakes: If you don’t like coconut, you can skip this step.

HOW TO MAKE YOGURT PARFAITS

Mix the yogurt mixture. In a large bowl mix the pineapple yogurt, sugar, and ground cinnamon until combined.

Assemble the parfaits. Spoon yogurt mixture into four small glasses or dishes.

Top with your favorite toppings. Top with pineapple, mandarin oranges, fresh raspberries, granola, and macadamia nuts. Sprinkle with coconut flakes and enjoy!
