    Love this recipe. You can substitute vanilla yogurt for greek style yogurt and when I do that, I don't add the turbinado sugar. It's amazing how something so simple can be so, so, so good.

    Very easy and quick to prepare. I did vary and use thawed, frozen, and drained blueberries as that is what I had. I also added strawberries and peaches to the fruit mixture as I had a few on hand. If you like more yogurt in your parfait, you may need to increase that mixture as I barely had enough to complete 4 of these. Kids would also love this pretty dessert or snack. It looks almost fancy and with a sprig of fresh mint could sit on just about any table.

    Delicious! The kids liked very much. I used fresh orange sections for some and mandarin oranges for some. Still good with the mandarin oranges, but not nearly as fresh tasting. Will definitely make again. The kids had oatmeal banana bread that I made into muffins with the parfaits. I also used regular yogurt because I had no greek style on hand.

    I have made this at least five times since I first read the recipe. I even bought parfait glasses for it! My husband and I both love it. I use more orange peel than specified and use artificial sweetener rather than sugar. This will stay in our breakfast rotation.

    Delicious! I used nonfat plain Greek yogurt, and added 2 packets of truvia per container of yogurt, and about 1/4 tsp orange blossom water that I happened to have in the house.Yum Yum.

    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.
