Summer is officially here! We’re all looking for quick, tasty treats that are filling and help us to cool off. Few things are easier on the taste buds that a scrumptious parfait made with good-tasting Fieldstone® Bakery premium original granola cereal paired with refreshing seasonal ingredients. Just thinking about it makes the mouth water. Try these recipes…
Red, White & Blue Granola Parfaits are great patriotic treat for Fourth of July with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and yogurt layered with whipped topping and crunchy granola. For the best taste, nothing beats fresh, local berries. The presentation of the layers in a tall glass adds to the fun.

A Grilled Peach Parfait will make breakfast feel like eating dessert – and it is actually pretty healthy! This recipe calls for using caramelized grilled peaches cooked on the BBQ the night before, allowing time for them to cool before chopping and refrigerating for the next day. Butter and sugar can be spread on before cooking to soften and sweeten the peaches. It takes more time to prepare than some parfaits, but patience pays off in a tasty change up from the usual berries.

This one is easy and fast enough to make that kids can try their own at home. See the recipe at http://www.bestbrunchseattle.com/easy-healthy-breakfast-recipes/banana-chocolate-chip-yogurt-parfait .
