I was introduced to the miracle of Greek yogurt parfaits through, of all things, a marketing job at a flatbread bakery.
First of all, it tastes fantastic and is a pretty easy breakfast to throw together and then carry out the door. Second, sometimes my job involved making these and feeding them to people while explaining that it tastes amazing and you can make lots of similarly delicious things with the bread.
I have since branched out to the Greek Yogurt and honey parfaits at Starbucks, and making my own at home. (As far as I’m concerned, the best brand of Greek yogurt is Fage, hands down, no contest.)
When I don’t have fresh fruit, I substitute jam — not quite as fresh and tasty, but still good. I should start going to the local Farmers Market!
