Raspberry Chocolate Parfaits

This “healthified” ice cream parfait made with frozen Greek yogurt will fool your taste buds into thinking they are indulging in a sweet treat, but you will be consuming only about 100 calories per serving! This is also a great recipe to make with kids – they will love layering their own parfait!

2 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, divided
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
1 cup low-fat vanilla frozen Greek yogurt
1 oz (about 1/4 cup) shaved dark or bittersweet chocolate

1. Combine half of the raspberries, sugar, and orange juice in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 8 minutes. Stir occasionally to break up the berries. Remove from heat, combine with the rest of the raspberries, and place in freezer for about 5 minutes to cool.
2. Place 2 Tbsp frozen Greek yogurt in the bottom of 4 glasses or serving containers. Top each serving with 3 Tbsp raspberry mixture and 1 1/2 tsp chocolate shavings. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

Yield: 4 servings
