Greek Yogurt Parfaits

Try making these Greek Yogurt Parfaits for a nutritious and delicious breakfast or dessert. Grano, which means "grain" in Italian, are the polished whole berries from durum semolina wheat. Look for them in health-food stores or Italian markets. If you can't find grano, try wheat berries, barley, or brown rice instead.
