This parfait recipe was inspired by a product I received to review but all opinions expressed here are my own.
I have always been a huge fan of adding fruit to my granola. If I have a bowl of granola for breakfast it is always topped with raisins or berries. When I grab a yogurt for a snack it usually has a combination of granola and fruit added to it. Granola gives it a bit of texture and the fruit provides extra sweetness. When I was trying to decide the best way to feature the delicious granola I received from Ladera Granola in a recipe I knew it would contain fruit. I was at the grocery store when inspiration struck. Lemons and raspberries would taste DELICIOUS with granola!
The question I had to decide was how to incorporate the lemon flavor into my dessert. I have been experimenting with a number of homemade puddings recently and a Google search led me to LOTS of delicious looking lemon pudding recipes. This parfait recipe pairs a thick and creamy homemade lemon pudding with layers of all natural granola and plenty of fresh raspberries. I chose to use Meyer lemons for this pudding since they are a bit sweeter than traditional lemons. I used about 6 lemons making this so make sure you buy a few! If you are pressed for time you could certainly buy your lemon pudding from a box but honestly, this pudding recipe is incredibly easy to make and you can do it the day before for a quick and easy parfait recipe to serve guests or just a really hungry family.
