IMG_5456

Who said you need to buy sweetened yogurt when you can make your own, even better, Banana Walnut Parfait? Flavored yogurt tends to have as much as 25 g of sugar PER SERVING.Don’t believe me? Check out Yogurt With More Sugar Than a Twinkie via Huffington Post. A delicious snack, light breakfast or dessert, this parfait has less added sugar using plain Greek yogurt as a base, adding only a pinch of agave nectar and plays off of the banana’s natural sweetness.

Ingredients (serves 1).

  • 1/2 c non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 to 1 t agave nectar
  • 10 banana slices (about 1/2 medium banana)
  • 2 T chopped walnuts
  • 1 t unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Cinnamon sugar
