That's right. It's 'Peanut butter jelly time, peanut butter jelly time...'
This is for those of you out there that looove peanut butter and jelly! And trust me, I know there's a lot of you out there. Peanut butter and jelly has always been one of my most favorite sandwiches and flavor combinations. Over the years I've made it into cookies, candy, cupcakes and more.
Since this Skinny PB&J Parfait is about three years old now, I decided that it needed a little bit of a make over. Not only has my style of cooking and creating recipes changed, but my photography skills hopefully have too!
So here is my fun summer twist on the classic kid friendly sandwich; turning it into a refreshing parfait that almost anyone can enjoy! It's super simple, easy to make, and well... it just looks impressive with lays of color, flavor, and fresh fruit.
I used fresh raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries here, but you could really use any berries or fruit that you typically enjoy as a jelly in your PB&J sandwich.
You can also make this parfait ahead and stash it in the fridge for a quick gran-and-go lunch. Though honestly I enjoy this as a breakfast option too.
If you've got peanut allergies, don't fret! This same thing would work with any sort of nut butter or peanut butter substitute that you would use similarly for the sandwich counterpart. You'll just be mixing the peanut butter substitute in with the yogurt rather than the peanut butter powder.
