Mona’s Family Favorites: Easy is often the most delicious! This is my go-to dessert whenever I throw a party for family or friends. The simple combination of fresh berries, cinnamon-scented
Greek yogurt, and chocolate makes an elegant, guilt-free finish to any meal. You always have to add a little chocolate, right? While this combination of fruit is our favorite, the variations are nearly endless. Serve in martini glasses for a festive presentation.

Perfect Portion Fantastic Fruit Parfait

HELPFUL TIP: Any flavor of nonfat Greek yogurt can be used in place of the vanilla, with berry flavors being obviously good choices. Topping each parfait with 2 rounded tablespoons of Homemade Granola (see page 272) in place of the chocolate chips will make for great 150-calorie breakfast parfaits.
