What do jet lag, photo editing and election night all have in common?
They make up my lame excuse for not having a giant Hawaiian (or as I’m now calling it, HaRyan—cackle with me) vacation recap post up. But guys, let me just tell you, this vacation blew my mind. I still don’t understand how the world can be so beautiful. I’m so excited to show off all the shots we got, but first I need to sort through the 1,732,897 (or something like that…) photos so I can craft the perfect recap. So, be on the lookout for that.
In the meantime, it’s time for me to get off my vacation anything-goes diet and back to something a little lighter in preparation for seeing all my family over the holidays. You know, because I want them to think I look great before I start shoving my face with holiday goodies, inevitably ending up gaining back five pounds by the time it’s all said and done just so things even out in the end. Maybe some of you feel my pain? Especially after Halloween candy binges? Maybe? Bueller?
I’ve always been told Greek yogurt is a healthy choice, specifically plain Greek yogurt. You can get it with no fat or sugar and a lot of protein keeping you full without doing any nutritional damage. The only problem is unsweetened Greek yogurt tastes pretty not great on its own. This parfait takes care of that with tons of flavor with no added sugar.
Plain, protein-packed Greek yogurt is layered with creamy peanut butter, no sugar added fruit preserves, a sprinkling of granola for crunch and a few juicy fruit slices for naturally added sweetness. Peanut Butter and Jelly Greek Yogurt Parfaits hit the spot for dessert, breakfast or as a snack anytime.
- 1 8-ounce cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon no sugar added fruit preserves
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter granola
- 4 halved grapes or strawberries (optional)
- Place ⅓ of the yogurt in the bottom of a clear glass bowl, cup or jar.
- Top the yogurt with the peanut butter, spread to create an even layer.
- Add another ⅓ of the yogurt on top of the peanut butter and top that yogurt layer with the fruit preserves.
- Top the fruit preserves with the last ⅓ of yogurt and finish by topping with the granola and fruit.
