How to easily peel a kiwi fruit:

How far in advance can Greek yogurt parfaits be assembled?

I wouldn’t assemble them much more than 1-2 hours in advance, as the parfaits will tend to get watery the longer they sit due to the juice in the fruit.

That said, you can prepare the diced fruit in advance and let it sit in the refrigerator (covered) for up to 2 days, if needed.

What are some of the health benefits of kiwi?

  • Kiwi contains serotonin which can help promote better sleep
  • Kiwi fruit can improve iron absorption and prevent iron deficiency in your body.
  • Kiwi is great for eye health and can prevent many age-related eye disorders.
  • Kiwi helps regulate the digestive system.

Can regular yogurt be used in place of Greek yogurt?

Sure, but why would you?

Greek yogurt has more body and less sugar than a standard yogurt and it will hold up well in a layered parfait with big, bold flavors.

How does Greek yogurt stand up nutritionally next to regular yogurt?

  • Greek yogurt and regular yogurt are made from the same ingredients yet their nutritional values vary greatly.
  • Greek yogurt has more protein and less sugar than regular yogurt.
  • An average serving of Greek yogurt can have up to 17 grams of protein (depending on the brand) which will help build stronger bones and muscles and will keep you feeling fuller, longer.

Can different fruit be swapped out for the strawberry and kiwi?

Yes! Use your favorites, or don’t use fruit at all. It’s totally your call.

Options for swapping out the granola:

  • chopped, toasted nuts
  • toasted coconut
  • crushed graham crackers
  • crushed pretzels (for that sweet and salty thing)
  • crushed sugar cones
  • crushed frosted (or corn) flakes
  • get creative and use your imagination…

What is the cleanest way to get the yogurt into the parfait glasses?

I like to add the yogurt into a large zip-top bag and then snip off a bottom corner to fashion a homemade piping bag.

Then, gently squeeze the yogurt into the glasses and you won’t have any of those unsightly drips running down the sides of the glasses and messing with your pretty layers.

Of course, you can use a piping bag if you have one, or you can use a spoon if you’re not that particular about how it looks, and you’re specifically after the taste instead. Whatever floats your boat! I’m not here to judge. 😉

Greek yogurt isn’t just for breakfast…
