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
