There are those days when I feel like the energizer bunny and I can just keep continuing on with work, errands, making dinner, and doing things around the house. And then there are those days where all I want to do is to come home from work and relax. Make a simple dinner, spend some time with the hubster, and just zone out. Do you ever feel like this, too?
When the weeks are busy, I often feel stressed because of the amount of work that I need to get done. And since I’m the type of person who likes to get ahead in everything, I sometimes need a gentle reminder to slow down and remember that some things can wait until the next day. So when I start feeling anxious, I like to unwind with a hot cup of tea and something delicious to snack on. It’s my way of taking some time to myself at the end of the day.
So when I was shopping at Walmart last week, I stumbled across DOVE® Fruit. I eagerly tossed all three varieties into my cart and headed home to try them out. DOVE® Fruit contains whole blueberries, cranberries, and cherries (my favorite) dipped in dark chocolate.
As I bit into the DOVE® Fruit Cherries, I was immediately in love with the smooth chocolate and tart cherry combination. And because my mind is always swirling with ideas of how to make tasty treats, I decided to pair two of my favorite ingredients, vanilla Greek yogurt and DOVE® Fruit Cherries into a feel good snack.
This Cherry Vanilla Yogurt Parfait is jam-packed with DOVE® Fruit Cherries, crunchy granola clusters, and creamy vanilla Greek yogurt. It makes the perfect light and delicious snack to help you relax and take a moment for yourself. The sweetness of the DOVE® Fruit Cherries compliments the nutty granola and smooth yogurt. One bite and you’ll love the combination of fresh flavors.
And like most of my recipes, this Cherry Vanilla Yogurt Parfait takes just minutes to whip up! It’s perfect for an evening snack because it contains just three simple ingredients, with hardly any prep time. That means that you’ll have more time to relax with this power snack.
To start, spread a layer of vanilla Greek yogurt into a glass or bowl. Then sprinkle some granola clusters and halved DOVE® Fruit Cherries. Top the second layer with more vanilla Greek yogurt, followed with more granola and DOVE® Fruit Cherries. Then grab a spoon and enjoy!
The best part of this Cherry Vanilla Yogurt Parfait is that no additional sweetener is needed. The yogurt and DOVE® Fruit Cherries have just the right amount of sweetness, making you feel good about indulging in this treat. And because it’s simple to make, you can prepare these ahead of time and refrigerate until you need a feel-good indulgence.
So the next time you need some time to unwind, grab those DOVE® Fruit Cherries and whip up this Cherry Vanilla Yogurt Parfait! It’s guaranteed to hit the spot and leave you feeling full and satisfied.
