Layering nondairy yogurts with seasonal fruits takes almost no effort, creating a treat that looks as appealing as it tastes.
Ingredients
  • Two 6- to 8-ounce containers vanilla, lemon, or piña colada nondairy yogurt (coconut or other)
  • 2 cups fresh fruit (see suggestions, following)
  • Grated semi-sweet chocolate, toasted sliced almonds, or granola for topping
Instructions
  1. Use 4 parfait dishes if you have them; if not, medium-sized glass tumblers will do. For each serving, layer ¼ cup each of yogurt and fruit in the parfait dish.
  2. Repeat each layer, then do the same for the other parfaits.
  3. Sprinkle with the topping of choice, and serve.

  • Peaches or nectarines with berries: Combine 1 cup diced ripe peach or nectarine, with 1 cup of berries.
