The secret ingredient is Teddy Grahams. Shh...

I've been trying really hard to work out 5-6 days a week, and not scarf down stupid amounts of bad food as soon as I'm done. I needed something convenient and something I'd actually look forward to eating. I started making a bunch of these pretty yogurt parfaits on Sunday nights so I have them all week long.

For about 120 calories, you get: 

  • 10 chocolate Teddy Grahams crushed up for the bottom crust. You'd be amazed at how good this is when the yogurt gets it a little mushy. So good. So so good.
  • 6-or-so ounces of Dannon Light & Fit vanilla yogurt. Other kinds have better ingredients but more calories, pick your poison. 
  • Tons of fruit on the top. I've done it with chopped fresh cherries, frozen mixed berries, and fresh whole blueberries. All have been great, though the frozen does add some liquid to the mix when it thaws. 
  • All in a cute 8-ish-ounce Weck canning jar! All you Ball mason jar hipsters could use those instead, the half-pint size.

I buy a 32-ounce tub of yogurt to split most of over four jars, and I have some mini jars for the rest (4-ounce jars w/3 Teddy Grahams, yogurt, and a spoonful of fruit). I'm able to split about a pint of fresh fruit over all of the jars.

There you have it! Another poor excuse to not write a post about my bathroom reno or employment situation!
