As the weather gets warmer, I often find myself searching for a cool, refreshing, and tasty treat.  At the same time, I like to make sure that I’m getting my fruits and proteins for the day, which is why I’ve been turning to frozen yogurt parfaits most recently.  With mixed berries, protein-packed Greek yogurt, plus a little extra chocolatey twist, they make crave-worthy snacks that give me the boost I need for the day!

These parfaits are great for anytime you want to encourage or reward yourself.  They make great celebratory treats after workouts, delicious breakfasts (that you’ll want to jump out of bed for!), and evening treats to indulge in after a long day at work.  With an endless variety of ingredients – from fresh and frozen fruits, yogurt flavors, and toppings and mix-ins – you can customize them however you like too.  For me, the most important add-ins are the new DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut snacks!

The DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut snacks really kick up my parfaits a notch, and transform them into tasty, guilt-free indulgences.  As if these parfaits weren’t easy enough to enjoy, the extra chocolate covered fruits and tasty nut morsels have me reaching for them more than ever.  I’ve even been choosing them over my usual high calorie, sugary pint of ice cream that I keep in the freezer. 😉

You’ll only need 5 basic ingredients for this recipe, and the prep is super quick and easy.  All you need is some protein packed Greek yogurt, frozen fruit, granola, wheat germ, and DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut snacks for the extra twist.  And feel free to experiment with this recipe!  Swap out the fruits with your favorites or try a different flavor of yogurt.

For the chocolaty-treat part, DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut comes in 3 options including DOVE® Dark Chocolate Strawberry & Cocoa Almond, DOVE® Dark Chocolate Blueberry & Vanilla Cashew and DOVE® Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Honey Roasted Almond.  There are also 5 other varieties available with chocolate and nuts, and chocolate and fruits – my favorite being the DOVE® Roasted Almonds covered in Dark Chocolate, which I often swap in when I want some variety.  For this particular recipe, I decided to go with the DOVE® Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Honey Roasted Almond mix.  Here are the steps to followed to make it:

  1. Grab a cup or bowl and add a layer of granola to the bottom
  2. Mix 1 cup of frozen berries and 1 cup of Greek yogurt in a blender
  3. Add the frozen fruit and yogurt mix  (about 1/2 cup full)
  4. Add 1/3 cup of the DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut product of your choice
  5. Add the frozen fruit and yogurt mix until it fills the cup
  6. Top off with about a tablespoon of wheat germ and a couple more DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut pieces
  7. Put your parfait in the freezer for 3+ hours until it freezes, or simply enjoy as is!

This is seriously one of my favorite breakfasts.  I’ll usually prepare it the night before, so the next morning it’s literally ‘grab and go’!  It’s so delicious too – definitely something I look forward to jumping out of bed for.  Fast-forward to the evenings, and I’ll be reaching for these instead of heading for that pint of ice cream! 😉
