Cherry-Vanilla Almond Parfait

From The Biggest Loser Dessert Cookbook


This parfait looks beautiful and impressive in a parfait glass, but it's also a great on-the-go snack if you construct it in a re-sealable plastic container. I particularly love it in summer months when cherries are at their peak. In the winter, you can always use frozen cherries—just make sure to find a brand with no added sugar.

  • Makes 1 serving
  • 2/3 cup fat-free, fruit juice-sweetened, cherry vanilla or vanilla yogurt (I used Cascade Fresh)
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain, crunchy, high-fiber, low-sugar cereal (I used Kashi 7 Whole Grain Nuggets)
  • ½ cup stemmed, pitted, and quartered fresh cherries
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped lightly salted dry-roasted almonds

Spoon 1/3 cup of the yogurt into the bottom of a parfait or wine glass. Top the yogurt evenly with the cereal, followed by ¼ cup of the cherries. Repeat with the remaining yogurt and cherries. Top with the almonds. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
