Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait

Sharing is caring!

 Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait - yum
It is a New Year and many people are looking for healthy breakfasts and snacks they can make and take on-the-go with them when at work, driving their kids to school or post-workout.
A Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait can be a healthy breakfast {feel free to leave out the dark chocolate..but a little chocolate never hurt anyone} or make this for a snack. The dark chocolate and raspberries will satisfy your sweet tooth while the Greek yogurt gives you protein to help keep you feeling full and give you energy.

 Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait - so good
When you make your Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait it is helpful to use a glass jar, like these Ball Canning Mason Jars, with an airtight lid.  The nice thing is it allows you to make these parfaits the night before, seal them up and put them in the refrigerator, and grab it when you are heading out the door. I also think this could be a healthy dessert for Valentine’s Day if you are looking for something sweet but not too heavy.
My kids also love these Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfaits. It is the perfect afternoon snack for them when they are craving something sweet.

I used fresh raspberries but other fresh fruits work great too. Try using strawberries, blueberries or blackberries. I like to mix the honey in with the Stonyfield Vanilla Greek Yogurt to add a bit more sweetness. You can mix up the type of yogurt you use to and try a plain yogurt, or a flavored yogurt. I tend to like Greek yogurt to get the extra protein in the parfait.
If you have an extra ten minutes I suggest you throw this Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait in the refrigerator and have it waiting for you in the morning!

Description

This Dark Chocolate Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait makes the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack. It offers a little bit of sweetness to satisfy your sweet tooth and packs protein and calcium. Your afternoon work snack never tasted so good!

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. In a small bowl mash 1/4 cup fresh raspberries and put them in the bottom of the two Ball Canning Mason Jars. In that same small bowl mix together the 1 cup of Greek yogurt and the honey.
  2. Layer the greek yogurt, raspberries and dark chocolate in each of the mason jars. Enjoy or seal tightly and refrigerate for later.
  3. *This recipe will fill up half of two mason jars or one full mason jar. I felt that one full mason jar was too much for one person to eat so that is why I split it into two. Feel free to use two smaller mason jars if that ends up working better.

Notes

You can make this parfait the night before, put the airtight lid on the mason jar and refrigerate overnight. [br][br]This parfait makes a large mason jar which can easily serve two people but also makes a hearty snack or breakfast for just one. [br][br]You can use a variety of yogurt options from plain Greek yogurt, to a flavored yogurt to plain yogurt. [br][br]Try other fruits like blackberries, strawberries or blueberries.[br][br]Try adding a teaspoon of chia seeds.

*One serving is half of a regular sized mason jar.
