IDEAS

Layer parfait just before serving to keep granola crunchy.

Use any high-fiber cereal you like instead of granola.

Try topping with rinsed, chopped fresh mint leaves for extra flavor and color.

To save money, use fresh fruits that are in season. When seasonal fruits are hard to find, use thawed frozen fruit.

Use leftover fruit in Fruit Smoothies.
