One of our favorite preparations with Greek yogurt is Yogurt Parfait . This may sound like a decadent dessert, but with a few small tweaks you can serve this probiotic-rich, naturally sweet treat , topped with colourful fresh fruits and whole grain granola, as a nutritious breakfast or an after-school snack (if you have kids or teens in the house). Greek yogurt can be a healthy and satisfying treat after a tough workout. Not only will it tide you over until your next meal, but it contains protein that can repair damage done by exercise. You can try adding a banana or some berries to your yogurt for a nutritious post-workout snack.
