Strawberry Piña Colada Greek Yogurt Parfait

Like I mentioned in my post yesterday, I don't eat a lot of sweets. I am such an all or nothing person that I have to cut them out entirely. I have done long stretches without any sweets, but I fall off the wagon hard core when I am pregnant and I mean a milkshake a day kind of hard core. Since my baby just turned one, I decided it was time to get back to my routine of no sugar.

Yesterday I shared a post about my tips for curbing sugar cravings, you can find all the tips here. One of my tips was find a replacement snack. Something that satisfies that need for sweets without actually jumping in the deep end. For me Greek Yogurt and with strawberries and shredded coconut is just the trick.

For this parfait you will need: 

  • Greek Yogurt in both Strawberry and Coconut (I like Yoplait Plenti)
  • Strawberries
  • Shredded Coconut
First halve and wash your strawberries. Spoon strawberry Greek yogurt into a cup. I love using mini trifle bowls, because seriously everything in better in miniature. Add a layer of strawberries and coconut. Spoon coconut yogurt on top. Finish off the parfait with the rest of the strawberry yogurt. Add strawberries and more shredded coconut to the top.
This is seriously one of my favorite treats. It is packed with protein, gives me the energy I need and satisfies that need for something sweet.
What is your favorite way to eat Greek Yogurt?
