I mentioned on my Classic Taco Salad recipe post that I often hesitate to post such simple recipes because I feel they aren’t flashy enough to share. I realized I never shared my Greek Yogurt Parfait recipe for the same reason!

Then I remember that often times, my most simple recipes are the ones my follows love the most. This recipe is SO simple and yet it keeps a Greek Yogurt parfait much lower than in carbs than many flavored options.

Using 0% plain Greek yogurt cuts the carbs tremendously and bonus the berries have such a yummy flavor after being thawed. Easy to keep the ingredients on hand and a delicious low carb snack or sweet treat that won’t derail you from your weight loss goals.

I personally use blueberries for my parfait but you can use any frozen berry or keep a bag of mixed frozen fruit on hand. It takes only 30 seconds to thaw the frozen fruit in the microwave. Small pieces of fruit go a long way too so that bag of fruit will last a LONG time and you will have kept your carbohydrates down!

  1. Yes, if it’s plain and you are adding these ingredients to it. Otherwise if it’s flavored I wouldn’t necessarily add more fruit to it. I hope I followed your question correctly!
