*If you like to mix everything together instead of eating in layers, opt for a 16-ounce jar to allow room to stir. For an 8-ounce portion, simply make two layers instead of three. I often prepare several jars at once, assembly-line style. The parfaits will keep in the refrigerator for up to three days. (Note: if you’d like the granola texture to be crispy instead of chewy, you may prefer to assemble and eat the parfaits within an hour or so.)
**I typically use 2% vanilla yogurt (sometimes Greek, sometimes regular) but have used maple, honey and plain as well. Use what you prefer in terms of flavor, thickness and fat content, and feel free to add a little more or less of one ingredient depending on preferred ratios of fruit to granola to yogurt.
