Quick & Easy Cranberry Walnut Parfait
Happy Sunday! This morning, as I was making breakfast, I made a triple batch of my fresh Cranberry Orange Sauce w/ Coconut (the coconut is optional). I absolutely love it and find all kinds of things to use it with and for. When I got back home after grocery shopping this afternoon I was a little hungry. I usually don't eat lunch on the weekends but late this afternoon I made myself a quick and easy little Cranberry Walnut Parfait using an individual sized cup of Fage 2% Greek Yogurt, a couple tablespoons of my fresh cranberry sauce and a few chopped walnuts. It was amazing! I have found yet another way to enjoy cranberry sauce. It's such a shame to limit cranberry sauce to a little dollop on your plate at holiday time. I like it beside almost any kind of meat at dinner time or a little dollop alongside eggs for breakfast or as jam on a power bagel with butter or peanut butter. There are so many ways to enjoy cranberry sauce that it deserves more recognition than it gets. Check out my little yogurt parfait swirled with fresh cranberry sauce and walnuts. It tastes more like a dessert than a healthy cup of yogurt with fruit. Enjoy!
