A parfait-style treat with a twist! Sweet, delicious, and crunchy granola cups exploding with flavor to hold all the goodies of a delicious parfait treat. Make these yogurt filled granola cups topped with fruit for breakfast, snacks or even serve as a dessert!
My oldest is a huge fan of the parfait. Okay, we all enjoy it, but my daughter Aliyah if given the option will choose it over just about anything else. Clearly, my youngest is following along in her big sister’s footsteps and didn’t even want to wait for me to finish before diving in herself! While it’s always an easy option to throw some granola and fruit on yogurt, I thought it would be a fun twist to mix it up a little and create a “cup” out of the granola. The great part is that these can be made ahead of time and stored for a few days! You can easily switch up the flavors and add in some extra punches of nutrition (like chia, flax, wheat germ, etc), and that’s something I love about it! It’s a snack that’s protein-packed and you can mix and match the ingredients to fit your family’s tastes and preferences.
Once the yogurt hits the granola, it will eventually soften, so assemble these delicious yogurt cups when you’re ready to indulge! Simply top with your favorite yogurt, we happen to be fans of Horizon Organic vanilla yogurt around here, and add in your toppings. This is where things can get really fun!

We’ve loved partnering with one of our favorite staple organic brands, Horizon, for awhile now to create fun recipes! Their signature red is easy to spot in our pantry and fridge. No matter what I’m making, from main dishes to sides to the sweet stuff, my goal is sticking to simple, recognizable ingredients. Without fail, as I start making my way into the kitchen or mixing up a new dish, I’ve got little ones with helping hands and I want to let them be curious and adventurous with what we eat without adding complicated things (like ingredients we can’t pronounce) in our food. My littles are also a main reason for my passion of getting good food on the table without spending my entire day in the kitchen, I want to spend time with them in and out of the kitchen. This is why I turn to Horizon for uncomplicated snacks that we love and dinner options like Horizon organic macaroni and cheese mixes because I can combine the simplicity of a meal my kiddos already love with other fun flavors (like our pumpkin bacon mac and cheese or one pot taco mac and cheese… both SO good!). 😉
