Berry Parfaits for BrunchWeek

Don't forget to visit my Food Blogger Brunch Week Post to see the AMAZING prizes for #BrunchWeek and enter to win these FABULOUS prizes below in the Rafflecopter (ARV $1800)! This week I have posted a great Blood Orange Mimosa recipe, a recipe for Tomato and Mozzarella Quiche, Almond Croissants and Crumb-Top Blueberry Muffins - so good! Happy Brunching!!!

After all the heavy and sweet items, I decided to go a little healthier for today's post - Berry Parfaits! This is such an easy recipe to put together. You can have it for any meal any time of the day - breakfast, brunch, afternoon snack or even dessert.

The crunchy Granola is great with the creaminess of Stonyfield Organic's French Vanilla Yogurt. The Strawberries I had were slightly tart, but balance by the sweetness of the Blueberries I picked a few weeks ago.
