TIP OF THE DAY: Crunchy, Savory Yogurt Parfait

One of our favorite kitchen activities involves playing with ingredients: What can we do with them that hasn’t been done before?

That’s how we developed our Pretzel Yogurt Parfait. We were inspired by a bag of pretzel nuggets (alternatively, crush regular pretzels with a rolling pin) and memories of Yo Crunch yogurt, variously mixed with cereals, cookie pieces and candy bits.

We love crunch, as do most Americans: That’s why crunchy chips of all kinds are the biggest-volume snack.

  • We used plain Greek yogurt to make our yogurt parfait, and tucked a layer of pretzels into the center for all-the-way crunch.
  • We also tried it with strawberry yogurt, for a sweet and salty effect.
    There are many possible riffs on the savory yogurt parfait. The most healthful include:


  • A sprinkle of flax, pumpkin and/or sunflower seeds
  • Sliced or chopped almonds or walnuts (the health benefits of nuts)
  • Diced cucumber evokes tzatziki and raita
  • Diced tomatoes for color, lycopene, vitamin A (the anti-oxidant beta-carotene) and vitamin C
  • Bigger flavors from chopped fresh chives or green onions, dried jalapeño or minced pickles
    What’s your favorite savory yogurt parfait recipe?
