This recipe can be used as a part of a cooking demonstration. For variety, substitute fruit yogurt or sugar-free pudding for the vanilla yogurt. If fresh strawberries are not available, try thawed frozen fruit or canned fruit packed in fruit juice. If time permits, invite the group members to make their own parfait. Line up the bowls, and supply a measuring cup for the amount to be used for each layer. Group members will enjoy making their own desserts and eating the tasty treat!

  • 2 cups sliced bananas (about 2 large bananas)

  2. Repeat the banana, strawberry, and graham cracker layer.
  3. Top with a rounded tablespoon of fat-free whipped topping, if desired. Serve the parfait immediately, or cover each glass with plastic wrap and chill for up to 2 hours before serving.
