Fruit & Yogurt Parfait

Today I am sharing one of my favorite recipe hacks. I feel like calling it a recipe is cheating since there are only two ingredients. This recipe came from my long love for McDonald's Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait. I have been eating these McDonald's treats for breakfast or a snack since high school. Recently, I found myself grabbing one from the drive through 1-2x a week. Because of my frequent visits, I decided that it was time to recreate the treats at home. With just a bit of trial and error, I was able to recreate the Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait at home!


The ingredient list is simple. Dannon vanilla yogurt and frozen mixed berries. The secret is using frozen berries. As the berries thaw, juices are released creating a natural syrup that flavors the yogurt.


Fruit & Yogurt Parfait
*McDonalds Copycat Recipe

- 1 Cup Dannon Vanilla Yogurt 
- 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries and Blueberries 

Layer 1/2 cup of yogurt in the bottom of a mason jar or any portable container. Top with 1/2 cup frozen berries. Layer remaining yogurt and frozen berries overtop. Enjoy immediately or place in refrigerator of a quick on the go breakfast or snack! 




The mason jars make it perfect to grab while running out the door. I have been making 4-5 of these on Sunday night for an easy breakfast I can enjoy at work. Hope you enjoy!!
