Greek Yogurt, Strawberry Parfait with Nutella Granola Crunch

I have a serious sweet tooth. The funny thing is, when I go to the grocery store, I refuse to buy anything unhealthy. This leads me to feeling neglected after dinner...that's when my sweet tooth kicks me in the face.

Last night after dinner, I racked my brain trying to come up with something to satisfy. So, that lead to this nifty, tasty creation. All I did was add 3 small scoops of fat free, vanilla Greek yogurt, 4 strawberrys, and then, for the best part...I smeared Nutella on a healthy granola bar. VOILA! We used the granola bar as the spoon and it worked! I felt satisfied and not guilty.

I think I might try this with peaches tonight and I might add slivered almonds. I'm nuts like that.

This sounds so yummy! I have been eating lots of fat free yogurt with fresh strawberries and granola this summer...so good and so filling!

I have GOT to get some Nutella. Funny story...my little one, Lucy, is REALLY into food. She is NOT one of those kids that will eat chicken nuggets only. She orders off the adult menu every where we go and knows exactly what she wants (how many 5 year olds order a mushroom quesadilla at a mexican restaraunt??). Anyways...she told me the other day that she wanted to try that "stuff" that is made with hazelnuts and skim milk...I racked my brain trying to figure out what she was talking about...and it finally occurred to me that she was talking about Nutella! I have never tried it, but it is on my grocery list now!!!!
