What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Vanilla Berry Yogurt Parfaits
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 237 calories, if 4 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

This was a GREAT recipe. I made a special one for me with just a few blackberries because berries are not my friend. I made a double batch, and took all but mine over to the Barnetts who had a family dinner going on at their home.

I had vanilla yogurt already in my home, so I used that instead of plain.  I will continue to use vanilla, because it was really good the way it turned out.

These are the ingredients that I used to create this recipe.

I began by washing the berries, and since the
strawberries were so huge, I cut them into
bite-size pieces.

The honey was added to the berries.

I love this Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste!

I doubled the recipe, so there was a lot
of fruit. It was now time to gently stir the 
berries honey, and vanilla.

On to the yogurt mixture.
I had Vanilla Greek yogurt already
in the fridge, so I decided to use it,
even though the recipe called for plain Greek yogurt.

I added in some honey.

Ree called for a vanilla bean, but I just used
the Vanilla Bean Paste that also contains
the little flecks of vanilla, like a bean.

I stirred it all together.

 I love these little jelly mason jars.
They have so many uses.
I began the assembly process by
spooning some of the fruit mixture in 
the bottom of the jar.

 Next, came the yogurt mixture.

 I topped it off with additional fruit.

 Up close and personal

 I put the gift jars in a basket

and carried it over to the Barnett home.
