I will say this is probably a little biased because I don't like blueberries, at least not whole ones. I used non-fat Vanilla Greek yogurt instead of reduced fat. I also didn't think the wheat germ was necessary, or at least not that much of it. It was pretty and I did enjoy the orange slices in the yogurt.
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.
