Cups of Fruits and Vegetables per Serving:


3 medium kiwifruit
2 medium red grapefruit, sectioned
1 cup honey
1 cup oat granola
2 containers (6 oz.) custard-style yogurt
mint sprigs, for garnish   

1. Peel the kiwifruit, cut lengthwise into quarters, then thinly slice. Reserve 8 slices for garnish.

2. To assemble the parfaits, divide the grapefruit sections among parfait glasses. Spoon about 1 tablespoon yogurt over the grapefruit. Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons granola then top with another layer of yogurt and one-fourth of the kiwifruit. Continue layering with the remaining yogurt, granola, and grapefruit. Top with the reserved kiwifruit and garnish with the mint.

Variation: substitute about 1 cup diced peaches, nectarines, mango, cantaloupe, or honeydew for the kiwifruit.
