Honeyed Strawberry Shortcake Yogurt Parfaits

Tags: ,

Breakfast and Brunch

Happy Friday everyone! Nice to have the weekend here!

I created this recipe for a little project I’m working on, that I’ll write about later and what a hit these were with my family. Fresh, cool and delicious for the summer!

I have been crazy for this Farmer’s Market in Mesa lately. I walk out with bags and bags of fresh produce for pennies, it’s awesome! If anyone is in Mesa, go to that Superstition market on Greenfield and Main, I love it! I bought 2 packages of strawberries for a whopping $1! Now who can pass that up!

And how cute are these little glasses. I was at Walmart and snatched them up. They were only 2 bucks. I think I’ll always be a bargain shopper!

I assure you the whole family will love this treat. Great for breakfast or just a midday snack. Hope you all enjoy!

Honeyed Strawberry Shortcake Yogurt Parfaits

4.5 oz package shortcakes, 4 count, cut into cubes
16 oz reduced fat vanilla yogurt
1 Cup chopped fresh stawberries
8 teaspoons honey
1 package Nature Valley Oats n’ Honey Crunchy Granola Bars (2 in package), crushed

1. Place an even layer of shortcake into 4 little parfait glasses. Top evenly with a couple spoonfuls of yogurt, then about ¼ Cup strawberries. Drizzle each cup with 1 teaspoon honey then top with a Tablespoon of crushed granola bar. Repeat this layering one more time and serve.

    What a gorgeous family! Happy Birthday to your mom. The parfaits look great, too. My kids got really into the yogurt/granola bar/ fruit parfait after PBO 2004.

    Wonder if I can talk my 14 or 18 year old into going to see that movie with me?

    If not, can I go with you?

    Jenny, These look super scrumptious. I’m so happy for the winners of your contest, but I’m dying to have a copy of your ward cookbook. Is there even a remote chance of buying one??? They look darling and if you were the one that put them together I’m sure they’re loaded with wonderful goodies to try and make. I love your blog!! I’m embarrassed by how often I look at it. Have a great weekend. P.S. What an adorable picture of your Mom and all of you. Cute! Cute!

    Thanks Prudy! I loved that parfait from the PBO! Have a great weekend!

    Hi Hallie,
    I bet your kids would love to go!

    Hi clumbsy cookie,
    I know, what the heck was I thinking not including chocolate, peanut butter and bananas in this?!!

    Hi Pasty,
    So glad to have you here. Hope you’ll find some fun new ideas for your family!

    Hi Sharon,
    Isn’t it the best to find great produce for a good deal. I love it!

    Hi Binks family,
    I know, I totally wish we lived closer! My dad is a lucky man isn’t he!!

    Hi Krissy,
    Send me an email and I’ll go and I’ll see if I have any of those cookbooks left. It is a great book. Thanks for vising Picky Palate so often!!

    I am cracking up.
    Kennedy’s baptism is tomorrow and I was planning on making strawberry shortcake for a summer dessert.
    I probably will just buy pound cake or the little cakes, because I don’t have cute dishes. I needed cheap strawberries though. I think I am also going to make some quick no bake cookies for the chocaholics.
    I want to go see Wall-E if we have time. My husband is an animator for pixar, so it’s fun to see what he does for these movies.

    Jenny says:

    Thanks My Sweet and Saucy,
    Nothing like a great deal on strawberries! So nice for summer too.

    Shanda,
    What a cool job your husband has! Your kids probably have the coolest stuff from all the movies!

    Strawberry shortcake is such a great dish to serve for the summer, go to that Superstition Market off of Greenfield and Main to get your strawberries, it will save you lots.

    Jenny says:

    Hi Deborah, sounds like you are enjoying your strawberries, I’ve got another package in the fridge to use up.

    HI Shannon,
    Hope the family enjoys! I’ll have to check out those steaks!

    Thanks Zen!

    Yummy parfaits. What a beautiful picture and beautiful women! Today my 2 children went to see WallE with the swim team. My 10 year old daughter said it was boring and a few moms said they fell asleep (But don’t tell anyone:)
    My six year old son really liked it so I guess it is more for younger children. Have a great weekend!
