R is for Recipe: Blueberry Crunch Parfaits
This post contains affiliate links; find my full disclosure here.
Because July is the peak of blueberry season here in Michigan, I have decided to share a new blueberry recipe each week this month. I love blueberries and have ever since I was a kid. I remember going blueberry picking with my mom and my grandfather. Those berries sure tasted good right off the bush warmed perfectly by the sun. Yum!
Today I will share with you the “recipe” for blueberry crunch parfaits. This combination was introduced to me by a dear neighbor many years ago when I was just a kid. It continues to be my go-to snack every summer when fresh blueberries are in abundance.
Plain or vanilla yogurt, regular, low fat or greek
Fresh blueberries, rinsed and dried
Spoon a layer of yogurt into a glass or a bowl. Top with a handful of blueberries and a sprinkle of Grape-nuts. Repeat 1-2 times. That’s all there is to it. It is almost embarrassing to call this a recipe because it is so simple. But it really is delicious!
The secret ingredient is the Grape-nuts cereal. Can you believe it? This cereal adds just the perfect crunch to the sweetness of the berries and yogurt. I think Grape-nuts are a bit of a hidden gem. They are good as hot or cold cereal. I also love to add them to my salads in place of croutons. Again, they add just the right crunch without a ton of calories.
What do you think? Will you give it a try? Whether enjoying these blueberry crunch parfaits for breakfast or a healthy snack, you won’t regret giving this simple treat a try.
