Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and I wanted to make a fun little dessert. I recently purchased a couple of cute little dessert glasses and decided to use them.  Not only did they turn out yummy, but the Maple Chai Quinoa Clusters and fresh blueberries have great health benefits too.

You can use either tall parfait glasses or  short parfait glasses.

I love KIND Maple Quinoa Clusters with Chai Seeds Gluten-Free Granola. This granola is great to munch on as a snack, as a breakfast cereal, as a topping on ice cream, in parfaits, etc…. the list is endless! There are other flavors to choose from, but the Maple Quinoa Clusters with Chai is one of my favorites.

These are not only delicious and fun to eat, but they are also very pretty. Kids will love these and if you are brave you can let them help assemble them.

 Try experimenting with different types of fruit, such as fresh strawberries, raspberries, kiwi, bananas, peaches, pineapple, etc… You could even throw in some coconut and a little dark chocolate for kicks and grins.

If you are watching your calorie intake, feel free to omit the cool whip and use low-fat/sugar-free yogurt instead of pudding. Either way, these parfaits are super fun to throw together and super fun to eat… and I’m always game for having some fun! 

Happy Valentine’s Day!
