Ingredients

  • cups plain yogurt, (I use low-fat Greek-style)
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons kiwi pulp from about 2 larger, brown-skinned kiwi
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • about 2 dozen kiwi berries, cut in half, horizontally
  • ¾ cup granola (your favorite one)

Instructions

  1. Make the yogurt mixture. In a small mixing bowl, combine the yogurt with the kiwi pulp, honey, and vanilla. (To make the kiwi pulp -- peel each kiwi and then on a clean cutting surface, finely chop them until you have super tiny pieces. Press them with the bottom of a fork to "purée" them further and to extract more juice.)

  2. Assemble the Parfaits. Use 2 (approximately 12-ounce), clear glasses or jars. Use about 12 baby kiwi halves to make the bottom layer in each glass or jar. (See bottom notes!) Then add 2 tablespoons of the granola on top of the baby kiwi, in each one. Follow the granola with about 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture, in each one. Repeat this twice more, and then finish the baby kiwi. They should be kept refrigerated until you're ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

This recipe is for pretty generous portions -- you could certainly make smaller portions by using smaller glasses or jars, and dividing the ingredients accordingly.
