St. Patrick’s Day is only 6 days away! I’ve never been that in to this holiday but I figured I better at least get into the green food part. I’m not a big fan of just dying things green though. Icing is okay but green pancakes make me feel sick.
The other day at the store I saw that the Key Lime yogurts were on sale so I was inspired to make these yummy parfaits that have just a hint of green. The key lime and strawberry combo is so refreshing. Perfect to get you in the mood for the warm weather ahead!
According to my husband it was”Really, really good!” Plus it’s easy, low calorie, and low fat. Eat it for breakfast, as a snack, or a healthy dessert.
Strawberry Key Lime Parfaits
- 1 6 ounce container Yoplait Light Thick and Creamy Key Lime Pie yogurt
- 4-5 strawberries, diced
- 1/4 cup granola, without raisins
- Whipped cream, for topping
- Layer in a glass, jar, or cup: yogurt, strawberries, granola, yogurt, strawberries, yogurt, granola (or whatever order you want).
- Top with whipped cream (homemade tastes the best!) and serve immediately.

We enjoy St. Patrick’s Day here . . . being Irish and all and also having served my mission in Ireland. I usually put green food coloring in the toilet. The kids really find this funny! We go to the Indy St. Patrick’s Day parade (brrr it is supposed to be 35 degrees on Monday!). I make green muffins (they do have green food coloring) and kiwi slices for breakfast and we usually have Irish stew for dinner.
Don’t forget to wear green! 🙂
What a fun tradition! You are such a fun mom Judi! I’ll hopefully get more into the holiday (and dye toilet water green or something) when Carly is a bit older.
I have never heard of Irish stew so you’ll have to put it on your blog so I can see it!
Well it is just basically beef stew Melanie. Nothing special! Except in Ireland I often had it with mutton (older sheep meat) which is very fatty and tougher and very hard for me to stomach! I never had corned beef and cabbage in Ireland. It is an American tradition!
I don’t think I would be able to stomach older sheep meat either! ewww!
These look super yummy! I totally agree about green dyed foods! My sister-in-law made Derek and I scrambled eggs one day while we were dating for St. Patty’s day, and they were just… not appetizing to say the least haha
Thanks Paige! Yeah, green scrambled eggs do not sound appealing. Hahaha!
