We all have our daily routines, that can get, well… boring. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut when preparing meals or snacks. This is close to my heart as I’m currently on a clean eating kick, as I’m doing the 12 week transformation challenge with Gold’s Gym. This stemmed from my 3 month hiatus away from lifting, and 3 months of indulging during Hawaii, Holidays and Florida. Excuses, excuses! Anyone, one thing that’s apparent from my food tracking on MyFitnessPal is that I was overeating and under exercising. Not only that, but I also found myself filling up on the wrong foods, putting my macro’s all out of whack. I’m now getting back on track I’m adjusting my meals and snacks. Recently one afternoon snack I’ve been enjoying s is Daiya Greek Yogurt. It makes and absolutely delicious berry parfait!
Daiya Greek yogurt
In 2013 I switched from a 20 year vegetarian diet to a 100% vegan diet. I had tried to make the switch before, but a couple of things always tempted me back. Namely cheese and greek yogurt. I will tell you for certain, that had Daiya been around back when I first tried I would have gone vegan much sooner. Pretty much any meat based product you can think of now has a vegan alternative. Including, thanks to Daiya, one of my old favorites… greek yogurts. Greek yogurt had always been my favorite type of yogurt. It was creamy, yet slightly tart. It had a thick consistency too, meaning you could use it for so many things! Let me just say that when Sprouts opened a store in our city last year I was over the moon. They stock a lot of Daiya products including my beloved greek yogurt.
Reasons to choose Daiya
Whether you are vegan, lactose intolerant, have food allergies or just want to switch to a healthier lifestyle Daiya is a great brand to seek out. For those with allergies be assured that Daiya products are free of dairy, gluten, soy, eggs, peanuts, fish and shellfish. For us vegans all Daiya products are free of animal products and certified vegan. All Daiya products have ingredients you can pronounce, with no hormones, no antibiotics and nothing artificial. Better for your health, better for the environment and better for the food system.
Each container of Daiya Greek yogurt contains just 150 calories making it a great way to enjoy an afternoon treat without racking up the calorie intake or destroying your appetite later. I’ve found it’s “just enough”. With 4.5g fat, 20g carbs and 8g protein it’s something that works right into my daily macros too. For those counting macros:
- Protein 21%
- Fat 27%
- Carb 53%
Daiya Berry Parfait
- 1 tub Daiya Greek Yogurt
- 3oz berries*
- 1/4 cup granola*
*save a small amount for decoration
Place 1/2 of the berries into bottom of jar, add 1/2 of the granola. Add 1/2 the tub of Greek Yogurt. Repeat the
layer of berries, granola and yogurt. Top your parfait with a sprinkle of granola, and any remaining berries. Serve and enjoy!
As you can see I chose the blueberry Daiya greek yogurt and blackberries for my parfait. Why? Blackberries were on sale at Sprouts. Gotta take advantage of those sales. I absolutely LOVE this with strawberries fresh from the farm and the strawberry greek yogurt but alas I haven’t been on a farm trip lately. I hear the strawberries are coming into season though so definitely making a trip soon!
Now although I may lick the lid of the lid of the yogurt to get every last bit of flavor, I can’t get my tongue into the pot. Thankfully I have a buddy that has a longer tongue and enjoys the Daiya greek yogurt as much as I do! Seriously Pixel loves this stuff and giving him the pot to lick clean is a little treat that keeps him quiet for about, oh… a minute. I guess all our family loves Daiya!
What’s your favorite dessert?
Do you lick the yogurt off the lid?
What’s your favorite berry?
Oh, I always lick the yoghurt from the lid! It would be a shame to waste it, wouldn’t it? Seriously though: this recipe looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it.
I know right. That’s a lot of yogurt on the lid, why throw it in the trash?
These look delicious! I love how healthy they are and perfect for trying to be healthier this year!
Oh they are, or can be. Depending on the granola you use!
What a pretty parfait, I love the color. This looks like a really great way to get in some berries & other great stuff!
Great way to get in some micronutrients from the fruit!
This looks really good. I’ve never heard of this brand before but it seems like it is great. I love yogurt so I’ll have to check it out.
Definitely give it a try!
Oh wow this looks delicious. I’ve been looking for a healthy treat option for my kids and this looks perfect!
Great for kids, it’s so colorful and the granola adds a great crunch!
Yummm!!! What an amazing recipe!! The finished parfait looks super tasty! Oh, and licking the lid is such a must 😀 I love raspberries the most!
Oh I love raspberries too! Not as much as strawberries though
I love blueberry yoghurts – they are my favourite. Used to make a parfait like this when I was working in an office – it’s the perfect healthy breakfast! xx

Yay another lid licker! 🙂
This looks so good, so I can only imagine that it tastes amazing too!
I haven’t heard of this yoghurt but it looks so yummy! Berries, yoghurt and granola is one of my favourite meals. Also, I hate it when people like the yoghurt off of the lid haha – I don’t know why!
hahahahaha. I’m sure we all have those quirky things we don’t like for no reason!
These look so yummy! Yogurt parfaits are one of my favorite healthy treats.

I can’t tell you how delicious this looks!! I love a good crunchy yogurt in the morning and I will for sure give this a try.
I think a lot of it is in the prep. Trust me I’ve had the same ingredients thrown together in a bowl and they don’t taste the same. We eat our food with the eyes too 😉
Oh my! That looks amazing! My kids love berries so I will give this a try. I am sure they’re going to love this.
Yes berries are so good for us too!

I am by no means vegan or even vegitarian but your parfait looks good enough that i may have to give it a try!
Try it with any yogurt. I just used Daiya to show that the vegan option is available.
Oh my goodness! I had no idea that vegan Greek yoghurt was even a thing! That looks delicious.
I know right! So many people think we eat nothing but lettuce 😀

That looks delicious. I think my kids might actually eat this. I need to try it.
Oh it’s so good, colorful which kids like!
I am a vegetarian but sometimes too.much dairy can irritate my stomach. So Daiya sounds perfect for me!
Yes Ana! Hope it’s available over the pond! I’m looking forward to trying out some “Gary” in August when we’re over!
Yes, I lick the yogurt off the yogurt lid, and my dogs are all about licking the container clean whether or not they are supposed to. 😉 Greek yogurt is my favorite. That parfait looks so good.
hahaha dogs and their yogurt pots!!!
What a pretty parfait, I loved that you added blackberries, I love fruit and yogurt! So yummy!
Yep. Would have made more sense with blueberries with the blueberry yogurt but blackberries were on sale. Couldn’t pass em up!
I love creating a new parfait combinations. Not a big fan of greek yogurt but the flavors sounds like a great taste!
Try the Daiya, not as tart as greek yogurt.

The color of this is beautiful! I love yogurt parfaits, and these sound like the perfect breakfast and snack!
I’ve had it as both. And a dessert!
This looks delicious! I always lick the yogurt off of the top of the lid. It feels like a waste if I don’t
Hahaha glad it’s not just me!
Holy cow this looks good. I would love to have this for breakfast some morning. I bet it is super tasty.
Yep delicious! The crunch of the granola really adds depth to the yogurt
This looks really yummy! I love yogurt parfaits! This is so colorful, too!
Thanks! Yes it’s definitely eye catching!
