Delicious & Nutritious Dessert: Parfaits

So on my quest to eat low-glycemic index fruit, I purchased strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries from BJs. I also picked up non-fat, plain Greek yogurt for a lean protein, intending to use the yogurt like sour cream and mix it with Penzey’s Sunny Paris seasoning to make a veggie dip. But alas, the yogurt didn’t quite make it to veggie dip because it got diverted to… Parfaits!

This parfait recipe makes a great dessert or snack with no added sugar or fat but with plenty of flavor from the fruit and spices.
