Recipe FAQs

Can I use regular yogurt instead of Greek yogurt?

Yes, but keep in mind that Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt. Using a different yogurt changes the nutritional information.

Can I use a different type of fruit?

Absolutely! Feel free to mix and match your favorite fruits, such as blueberries, raspberries, or even kiwi. It’s best to use fruit that is fresh and in season.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this recipe ahead of time. Simply assemble the parfaits in individual jars or containers, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to eat.
