…First and foremost I want to tell you all that I truly appreciate your wonderful, kind, and caring words; yesterday’s post was very hard to write, but I had to do it for my Baba.

Sometimes all we need is for someone to tell us that everything is going to be okay, and I thank you all for that.


I went to the pool last weekend with my husband and my daughter. Had a great time watching the little one enjoy herself while swimming around with daddy…it was very sweet.

But I could not help noticing one other thing – MILFs were everywhere!! Did people start working out before June?!?


THANK goodness I “forgot” my bathing suit at home.

So last week while everyone was gobbling up ice cream and frozen cheesecakes, (it was near 100 degrees for 3 days), I was hanging out with granola, fruit, and cold yogurt parfaits.

Servings : 4 servings
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 8 mins
Total Time 30 mins


  • 2 cups non-fat plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons honey or agave syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups pitted cherries
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar


  • In a large bowl combine the yogurt, honey, and vanilla; mix well and put it in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Mix together the oats, cocoa, and sugar, and pour in a skillet.
  • Toast the oats over medium heat for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool completely and set aside.
  • Put the pitted cherries in the skillet and cook for about 10 minutes, or until soft. Cool completely.
  • cherriesSave
  • Assemble the parfaits by pouring a 1/2 cup of yogurt in each glass.
  • Spoon over some of the oats, top with half of the cherries, then pour the rest of the yogurt on top, and finish off with more oats and cherries.
  • Put the parfaits in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.


  • I partially froze mine and pretended that I was eating ice cream with the rest. In fact, I urge you to freeze it because it is that much better when frozen. Trust me – I’ve had 4 of these in a week.

    I would trade in the ice cream for this parfait. Forget the MILFS…….candy to the eye without depth.

  2. Sounds delicious! I love homemade granola, and what’s not to love about it paired with cherries? YUM.

  3. You’re so funny Kate! Gorgeous healthy yummy dessert. I would love to have a couple of these stashed away in my freezer.

  4. I love this recipe and technique…good wholesome stuff. I’m on the lookout for agave syrup. Beautiful presentation. Wish I had a serving right now! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Not only did I have the pleasure of you guest blogging for me this week, you’re also a Top 9 Rockstar! Congrats Kate, so utterly deserving! I sense a yogurt theme. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think I have some reinier cherries with my name on them!
