Mandarin Parfait Recipe

Mandarin Parfait

Prep Time 5 minutes

Juicy mandarin segments play a starring role in this colorful mixture of favorite flavors. Looks elegant, but easy to do and fun to eat: This parfait is perfect for breakfast, a special after-school snack or for dessert. It's pretty made in a glass goblet but tastes just as good from a bowl. This recipe is easily doubled. A crumbled oatmeal cookie can be substituted for the granola, if desired.

What you'll need

  • 3 fresh mandarins, peeled and segmented
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 1/3 cup seedless raspberry jam/preserves, stirred to thin consistency
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted*
  • 6oz. container lowfat vanilla yogurt

Helpful Tip:

To toast almonds, heat in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, for 3-5 minutes, until lightly browned and fragrant. Remove from heat, let cool.
