Homemade granola adds crunch between the creamy yogurt layers. Use different fruit in season for the best flavour year round. Blueberries, strawberries and apple are a great combination. These parfaits are great for breakfast, snack or fancy enough for dessert. Try 4 to 6 individual servings in parfait glasses for another alternative.
