Hello, hello! Hope you all had a great weekend. We had gorgeous weather yesterday-the perfect temperature with a nice breeze. I wish it was like that year-round!
I've said it before, but strawberries are my favorite fruit. I have fond childhood memories of sitting in strawberry fields, eating perfect vine-ripened strawberries when I was supposed to be helping my mom pick them so that she could make her famous strawberry jam. Even to this day, Smuckers is a total disappointment.
Anyway, back to the strawberries... they're glorious. Strawberries are perfect on their own and even more perfect when added to treats. This Strawberry Pretzel Parfait is a refreshing and light snack that is sure to leave you satisfied. My version calls for Greek yogurt, which is packed with protein, and it's the perfect combination of salty and sweet. At 150 calories (more or less depending on which ingredients you use), you can't go wrong!
P.S. Mother's Day is Sunday. I bet she would love this!
Strawberry Pretzel Parfait
1- 5.3oz cup of Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt
8-10 mini pretzels
4 medium strawberries
Wash and slice the strawberries into small pieces. In a cup or bowl, layer 1/2 the cup of yogurt, followed by half of the strawberries, and then half of the pretzels. Repeat the layers. Serve immediately and enjoy!
