Greek Yogurt Parfait

My brother is trying to get used to taste of Greek Yogurt so he can add some more protein to his vegetarian diet. Therefore, I made him a parfait to help him enjoy the yogurt. It had a balance of protein, sweetness, carbohydrates, and whole grains so it was a good breakfast option and could even be a great snack or dessert. I used granola, honey, and blueberries and layered yogurt in between in a normal drinking glass that I found in the kitchen.

** Update: a day later, my sister wanted to have a yogurt parfait too so I made her one with the same ingredients but added some Kellogg’s Froot Loops in between the layers! Here’s a picture (the recipe is the same, just add some Froot Loops with the granola):
