I got out some pretty antique glassware to serve this layered, crunchy treat. I love McDonald’s Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfait. I have tried to replicate this several times without luck. Finding the right yogurt has been the issue. When I saw this recipe for Strawberry Yogurt Crunch, in yet another children’s cookbook, it caught my eye for it’s appearance and ease. I have to say this is the closest I have gotten to the McDonald’s version. The yogurt is still not what I’m looking for. Honey really adds the sweetness you need. I substituted almonds for the pumpkin seeds. You could swap strawberries for favorite fruits such as blackberries, blueberries, bananas and peaches. These parfaits would also be delicious for dessert!
