Vanilla Blueberry Yogurt Parfait With Steel Cut Oats


When posed with the task of creating a delicious, low calorie parfait recipe my mind instantly went to ‘Shrek’. I realize that this movie has very little to do with exercise, lifestyle, or even healthy eating, except for one pertinent quote by the character Donkey:

Parfait’s gotta be the most delicious thing on the whole damn planet.

And in fact, he’s quite right. Parfaits are delicious and can be nutritious if assembled correctly.
