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!

    Course: Snack
    Prep Time: 10 minutes
    Servings: 4


    • Blender or Food Processor


    • 1 cup granola (graham cracker crumbs would work as well)
    • 1 cup frozen strawberries
    • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 4 cups yogurt (any yogurt will work, my favorite is Greek yogurt)


    • Put the granola in a blender or food processor and pulverize it. Make it as fine and powdery as your appliance will allow.
    • Microwave your frozen strawberries in a bowl in 30 second increments until they can be mashed with a fork. Mash them into a liquidy pulp and stir in the vanilla and sugar.
    • In a container of your choice, layer the parfait. Start with yogurt, then the strawberry mixture, then granola dust. Make each ingredient layer between 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Keep layering until you reach the top. This makes about four 1-cup servings.

    Easy To Chew

     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.
