Tiny Yogurt Parfaits

Okay, so we're a little late to the shot glass dessert trend, but we wanted to try it once we rounded up the right materials. The tall, skinny shot glasses were found at Pier 1, and tiny appetizer spoons were unearthed at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. We found that two parfaits per person seemed about right, and since it's made with low-fat yogurt, raspberries, almonds, and just a little bit of vanilla wafer crumbs, it's a fairly healthy dessert.


Tiny Yogurt Parfaits
(Makes about 6)

1 cup Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons honey
1 small container of Chocolate Underground yogurt
1 pint raspberries
juice from half a lemon
2/3 cup almonds (toasted and chopped)
Back to Nature Madagascar vanilla wafers (crushed to crumbs)

Prepare the layers: whisk the Greek yogurt and honey in a bowl, whisk the chocolate yogurt in a bowl, and smash the raspberries with the lemon juice in a bowl. Put the chopped almonds and the crushed cookies in separate bowls as well. Add a small spoon to each bowl, and you'll be organized and ready to go! Layer the 5 things -- I like putting a few of the almonds on top -- and chill for at least an hour before serving.
