McDonalds Fruit Parfait Copy-cat

So I am pregnant (again) and I am constantly craving healthy things (and Mexican food but that doesn't count) and there is just one thing I love at McDonald's (considering that place is death!) and that is their fruit and yogurt parfaits! YUM! Well since I was tired of getting my cute husband to go fetch me a yummy fruit parfait I decided I would make them myself! I went to my local farmers market (AMAZING!) and got some fresh CHEAP fruit and then went to Wally world (Wal-mart) and got some vanilla yogurt. Here is what I did to make this spectacular treat!

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Boysenberries
  • Vanilla Yogurt
  • Honey Bunches of Oats cereal (its a must!)

1. Wash off all of your fresh fruit (duh).

2. Slice them all up the size that you desire.

3. Get a cup and fill the bottom of it half way with vanilla yogurt.

4. Dump in the fresh fruit.

5. Put more vanilla yogurt on top of your fruit.

6. Top off with a handful of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal to add the crunch factor!

YUMMY!!!! These are sooo good! My husband even liked them and he is a hard costumer when it comes to healthy eating (don't tell him I said that lol). I will admit to all of you that these homemade parfaits are 10000x's better then the McDonald's ones! I think because McDonald's only has strawberries and blueberries that are frozen half the time (I hate frozen fruit! yuck!) and mine are fresh!!!

I hope you enjoy this tasty and HEALTHY treat!

Have Fun!
