Easy Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

I bought these little cordial glasses at a garage sale for $.10 each. I actually use them all the time.
It's funny, but my kids will eat anything out of them because they're smaller than actual glasses and they make everything a little fancier. I made them these Fruit 'n Yogurt Parfaits. Took about 10 minutes and they turned out pretty good and pretty colorful!

Here's how I made them:

Step 1: You'll need a flavored yogurt, fruit and fat free Cool Whip. I used drained crushed pineapple and low fat strawberry yogurt. You can use any kind of yogurt and fruit or even a few different types depending on how large your glass is. You can add granola, graham crackers, pretty much whatever sounds good.

Step 2: Get 2 regular sandwich baggies. Fill one halfway with yogurt and tie off with a rubber band. Do the same with your Cool Whip. Now you have a way to get the yogurt and Cool Whip in your glass without making a big mess.

Step 3: Start with the fruit and fill your glass 1/3 of the way. Now trim the tip of your Cool Whip baggy and squeeze in another 1/3 of the way up with your Cool Whip. Repeat with your yogurt baggy. 

Step 4: I finished with Fat Free Redi Whip and sprinkles. I tied a bow on the stem and added just a tiny strip of tape to keep it in place. 

Enjoy your parfait!!
