This McDonald's yogurt parfait recipe is super easy to make, plus it's low fat and delicious. The yogurt in the original is very sweet and creamy like Yoplait. So that's the brand that you should use, although any brand of a vanilla yogurt will work fine (see update in "Tidbits"). If you use Yoplait, you'll need two 6-ounce containers of the stuff per serving. For the granola, just look for one that contains mostly oats. It should be crunchy and sweet, and can also include puffed rice bits. You can make these McDonald's yogurt parfaits a day or two ahead of time. Keep the fruit and yogurt parfairt covered in the fridge, and hold off on the granola topping until just before you serve them or it'll get soggy. Also, try our McDonald's strawberry banana smoothie recipe.

I'm a middle school teacher and sometimes trying to get students motivated is difficult; however, the mention of McDonald's brings their attention quickly. I use this recipe as a kitchen lab for practicing how to measure correctly (also I have used this as a 'how to prepare fresh fruit for consumption). Love it..and many thanks.

I recently got a fruit & yogurt parfait from McDonalds and fell in love with them. Being able to make them myself at home is awesome. Thanks Top Secret Recipes!
