YOGURT PARFAIT

Organic Vanilla Yogurt
Granola
Fresh or frozen strawberries and/or blueberries (unsweetened)

Place 1/4 cup yogurt in the bottom of a glass, then add a layer of 1/4 cup fruit and another layer of 1/4 cup yogurt. Top with Granola, and refrigerate until time to serve.

SERVING SUGGESTION: I serve mine in parfait glasses I found at the flea market. For less than five dollars I got a set of six. They look like tall, thin glass on a short pedestal. The parfaits look beautiful in them, and it makes people feel special when they eat out of them. This recipe can also be used as a dessert recipe for guests.

GRANOLA

4 cups oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup each almond pieces, walnut pieces, and sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup olive oil
1/8 cup water
1/2 cup honey

In a medium bowl, mix wet ingredients together. In large bowl, mix dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well.

Pour onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to 250 degrees and continue to cook until lightly browned (watch closely!) . Remove from oven.

When cool, store in an airtight container.

NOTE: For homemade wheat germ, grind wheat with grinder at a coarse setting. Sift through a small mesh strainer, allowing the flour to fall into a bowl. What remains in the strainer is the germ. Save flour for other uses.

FRUIT SMOOTHIES

Place the following in a blender:

Fresh or frozen fruit, orange sections, blueberries, strawberries, or 1/2 cup orange juice.

Add 3 to 6 ice cubes
Add 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
Add 1/3 cup fruit and 1/2 cup orange juice


Blend till smooth and thick and pour in glass. Add a straw and serve.

SERVING SUGGESTION: In warmer weather, our family sits on the porch after a big Sunday dinner. This is a wonderful treat and reminds me of Andy Griffith on Sunday when they would rock on the porch and talk about getting ice cream.
