Ingredients

      • Plain, preferably organic, Greek yogurt (avoid flavored yogurts, which contain added sugars)
      • Fresh or frozen berries of your choice (organic preferred)
      • Chopped pecans or walnuts
      • Honey or maple syrup (optional as a pure alternative to processed sugars)

 

Instructions

      1. In a parfait cup or coffee mug, place a scoop of the berries (about 2 Tbs.).
      2. If you want more sweetness, drizzle honey or maple syrup on top (no more than ½ tsp).
      3. Scoop the Greek yogurt on top of the berries till the cup is about ½ full.
      4. Repeat one more layer.
      5. Top with a small layer of berries and about 2 Tbs. of the chopped nuts
