Sliced bananas for parfait

With on-hand ingredients — vanilla yogurt, cold cereal, bananas and a drizzle of sweetened condensed milk — this parfait is easy, healthy and great for breakfast or dessert.


2 cups low fat vanilla yogurt
2 large bananas, sliced
1 cup chocolate-flavored cereal
4 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk


Before you begin: Wash your hands.

  1. Layer 2 tablespoons of yogurt into the bottom of four 8-ounce clear glasses.
  2. Top yogurt with 2 tablespoons of sliced bananas and 1 tablespoon of chocolate-flavored cereal.
  3. Repeat layers until yogurt, bananas and cereals are used up.
  4. Drizzle each parfait with 1 tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk. Serve immediately.

Cooking Tip

  • This parfait goes great with dulce de leche instead of sweetened condensed milk. If you don't have dulce de leche, you can make it at home! Just submerge a can of sweetened condensed milk (label removed) into boiling water and let it simmer for 2 hours. Make sure that the can is covered with water at all times while it simmers and let it cool completely before you open it.
