This easy dessert or snack comes together in a few minutes if you purchase orange sections from the refrigerated part of the produce section. To make ahead, prepare parfaits and refrigerate, covered, for up to four hours; sprinkle with wheat germ just before serving.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Demerara or turbinado sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 2 (7-ounce) containers reduced-fat plain Greek-style yogurt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups orange sections (about 2 large)
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring until blended. Spoon 1/4 cup blueberries into each of 4 tall glasses. Spoon about 2 1/2 tablespoons yogurt mixture over blueberries in each glass. Add 1/4 cup orange to each serving. Repeat layers with remaining blueberries, yogurt mixture, and orange. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon wheat germ over each serving; serve immediately.
