Fruit and yogurt parfait. Is it a snack? Is it a breakfast? I’m inclined to say breakfast, but everything’s changed since McDonald’s started serving their breakfast menu 24 hours a day. No longer is a meal defined by a type of food, merely by the time it is eaten. So if you want to watch the sunrise while eating a fruit and yogurt parfait, then it’s a breakfast. If you have a sweet tooth craving at 4PM, then call it a snack. Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits are perfect for anytime, any place. If you have trouble chewing or swallowing, or breath oxygen, then this is the food for you!
To make your fruit layers easy to chew, do the following. Use frozen fruits and microwave them until they can be mashed with a fork. Mash them into a liquidy pulp and stir in the vanilla and sugar.
Blend the granola until it's very fine. It will be easier to chew and it will absorb a lot of delicious flavor.
It doesn't matter how thick each layer is or how many layers you have. Follow your heart.
Use any fruits and any kind of yogurt. You don't even have to use granola, you could blend up Fruity Pebbles cereal and use that if you wanted to.
Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits are soft, moist, and contain multiple soft textures. Any textures requiring chewing have been prepared so that there are no pieces larger than ¼ inch (or 6mm). These foods are soft enough that, with minimal effort, they can be easily formed into swallowable-sized portions.
If you require a pureed texture then no problem, just blend any fruit before adding it to the yogurt. If the blended granola dust doesn’t work for your situation that’s okay, it’ll still be delicious.
You need a blender. A good one. Click HERE to look at a vitamix blender. A good blender is better than a thousand teeth. Did you see what a vitamix blender did to that granola?
Stare into that granola vortex. Tell it your hopes. Tell it your dreams.
