Surprise your Dad with this healthy protein Parfait

The best Fathers’ day gift and its home made and healthy!

Show your Dad some TLC with his appealing, nutritious and delicious Parfait. Enjoy as a snack, a meal or even dessert!


Three tips for enjoying a parfait as a meal.

  1. Use a low sugar, high antioxidant fruit
  2. Use a heavy protein yogurt and some more protein
  3. Add healthy fat and fiber

Overall, most important tip, portion control all of the above. Just because it is yogurt and fruit and granola, doesn’t mean you can have a big serving.


Spread 2-3 tbsp of greek or vegan yogurt in a plate. I used cocojune for mine
Add a small side of berries or low-calorie fruit like mango
Add another small side of granola. I used my F3fuel gluten free organic granola that has goji berries and roasted almonds
Add 2 tsp or 1 tbsp hemp seed hearts
A very light drizzle of honey (you can skip this step)
A very light sprinkle of Tajin seasoning. I like this with the honey to balance the flavors.

A granola and fruit parfait can be a delicious and nutritious meal option, especially if it’s well-balanced and made with wholesome ingredients. Parfaits typically consist of layers of yogurt, granola, and fruit, offering a mix of macronutrients and micronutrients. Here’s why a granola and fruit parfait can be a good meal choice:

  1. Protein: Yogurt, a common ingredient in parfaits, is a good source of protein. Protein is essential for muscle repair, satiety, and overall body function.
  2. Fiber: Granola often contains whole grains and nuts, which provide dietary fiber. Fiber aids digestion, helps maintain stable blood sugar levels, and promotes a feeling of fullness.
  3. Healthy Fats: Nuts and seeds commonly found in granola provide healthy fats, which are important for heart health and nutrient absorption.
  4. Vitamins and Minerals: Fruits are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Berries, for example, are high in vitamins C and K, while bananas provide potassium.
  5. Energy: The combination of carbohydrates from the fruit and granola, along with protein from the yogurt, provides sustained energy to keep you feeling satisfied and energized.
  6. Customizable: Parfaits are highly customizable. You can choose different types of yogurt (Greek, regular, dairy-free), granola varieties (low-sugar, nut-free), and a wide range of fruits to suit your taste preferences and dietary needs.
  7. Convenience: Parfaits are easy to assemble and can be prepared ahead of time, making them a convenient option for busy mornings or quick meals.

However, there are a few considerations to keep in mind to ensure that your parfait is a balanced and healthy meal:

  • Portion Size: Pay attention to portion sizes, especially if you’re watching your calorie intake. Larger portions of granola can add up in terms of calories.
  • Granola Choice: Opt for granola with minimal added sugars and whole grains. Some store-bought granolas can be high in added sugars and unhealthy fats.
  • Yogurt Selection: Choose plain, unsweetened yogurt or yogurt alternatives to control the amount of added sugar. Greek yogurt is often higher in protein.
  • Fruit Variety: Use a variety of fruits to get a diverse range of nutrients. Berries, kiwi, citrus fruits, and mango are excellent choices.
  • Balanced Diet: While a granola and fruit parfait can be nutritious, it’s important to ensure that your overall diet is well-balanced and includes a variety of nutrients from different food groups.

In conclusion, a granola and fruit parfait can indeed be a good meal option when made with wholesome ingredients and proper portion sizes. It’s an opportunity to include protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals in your diet. Just remember to make thoughtful choices and tailor the parfait to your nutritional needs and preferences.
