Valentine’s Day Applesauce Parfait

Valentine’s Day Applesauce Parfait

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so whip up a delicious treat or dessert to show your kids or special people in your life they are LOVED.

I came up with a healthy and decorative parfait for a breakfast treat that is perfect for Valentine’s morning. You also may use it as a filling snack or a lightened up dessert. ¬†Parfait are fun too because you can get creative and use whatever ingredients you have on hand. I love the Wild Berry applesauce in this recipe because it’s pink, but naturally pink from the delicious organic berries. No additives are EVER used in Wacky Apple products, that includes sugar, artificial colors, preservatives, or any other junk. Just a whole lot of Colorado organic fruit! There is no better way to a person’s heart than through their belly :).

Valentine's parfait

Here’s my recipe:

Ingredients:
1/2 cup plain or vanilla whole milk yogurt or greek yogurt
1/2 cup Wild Berry Wacky Apple sauce 
1 tablespoon chia or flax seeds
1/4 banana, sliced
3 strawberries, 2 sliced into slices and 1 halved and cut into a heart
1/2 kiwi

In a clear, small glass dish or cup layer as follows:
1. 1/2 of the 1/2 cup of yogurt

3. 1/2 of the granola
