I personally prefer full-fat Greek yogurt, however, feel free to use what you already have on hand.

I think full-fat yogurts give the most creamy texture. My tongue rejects 0% fat yogurt. It doesn’t really give off that luxurious feel in my mouth, so I tend to stay away.

What’s inside the parfait?

Greek Yogurt- will give a slightly sweetened thick creamy layer and will contain all the chewy little chia seeds.

Chia Seeds- help this parfait that extra hint of nutrition. Chia seeds contain antioxidants, and fiber just to name a few benefits.

Maple syrup-will add natural sweetness.

Applesauce- gives this recipe the smooth fruit center.

Strawberries- is the star of the recipe and helps to provide additional summer flavor and aromatic experience.
