These Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Parfaits are easy, healthy and delicious! They are perfect for a quick breakfast or for a sweet snack. This family friendly recipe is sure to be a hit in your home.
My whole family loves these parfaits, even my super picky 5 year old. They feel like such a fun treat and the kids can help you put them together. The lemon blueberry compote adds so much flavor and you get to control added ingredients (unlike store-bought).
What You Need:
- Frozen Blueberries
- Lemon Zest
- Lemon Juice
- Honey – can also use agave
- Arrowroot Powder – this helps thicken the lemon blueberry compote
- Yogurt – I used plain non-fat greek yogurt, but you can use whatever yogurt you prefer
- Low Fat Granola – or toasted almonds (nuts of choice)
If you are prepping these ahead of time for the week, store them in airtight containers. I love these little glass jars from Weck. But don’t add the granola until just before serving. You don’t want it to get soggy in the fridge. The best part of granola is the crunch! To keep the WW SmartPoints lower in this recipe, I use low fat granola but feel free to use whatever granola you prefer.
