Our heart healthy recipe with whole grains and berries are these delicious fruit and yogurt parfaits! Although, I think parfaits are amazing, sometimes they are a bit too much food for my 3 and 1 year old. These little parfait bites are the perfect size for a little tummy. They also have a variety of textures – crunchy shell and granola, smooth yogurt, soft fruit. It is great to expose your children to a variety of flavors and textures to help expand their palate.
These were really easy to make. I whipped up a batch in less than 15 minutes!
I used Wonton Wrappers. I just pressed them into a mini muffin tin and baked at 375 for about 8 minutes until they started to turn golden.
Then I filled each cup with:
- Yogurt – I used Strawberry-Honey flavored Greek yogurt
- Granola – Just a small sprinkling
- Fruit – I diced kiwi, blueberries, and strawberries
My kids liked breaking off the edges and dipping it in the yogurt. If you have extra, you can put them in a tupperware, and store in the fridge for the next morning. The shell softens up and it is almost like eating a pastry!
