Yogurt Par - Fait Accompli
February 19, 2013 1:44 PM Subscribe
Instead of buying individual yogurt cups in artificial dessert case flavors, I buy a large container of greek yogurt once a week and make parfaits in these containers
for a grab&go breakfast. I need more ideas for delicious things to mix into plain yogurt.

I started out layering banana with agave syrup, then topping it off with granola. Delicious.
Then I threw a spoonful of natural peanut butter in with the banana and agave-brilliant! More protein, more flavor, and who would have ever thought peanut butter flavored yogurt is the tastiest thing in the world?
In summer, I macerate strawberries in agave to add syrupy sweetness and flavor to even the most insipid, mealy berries. But it's February, I live in Chicago, and even agave ain't saving the berries in stores right now. Feel free to suggest summer fruits, though, I'm sure the suggestions will come in handy eventually.
I am not allergic to anything that one would consider putting into granola. I am not trying to lose weight. I try to limit my sugar during breakfast and lunch and go heavy on protein, but this is because I bike 7 miles to work and will start chewing on my own arm by 10am if I eat Cocoa Puffs for breakfast, not because I'm on some strict paleo-low carb-whatever diet.
What are some unusual items to mix into and flavor yogurt besides the standard berries?
