I created these healthy #Outshine parfaits as part of a sponsored post for SocialStars by Crowdtap. I love awesome snacks and these babies are all my own.
At the beginning of the year I told you about wanting to get back to my normal healthy eating ways. I have been successful for the most part thanks to smart choices, but snacking is my weakness. Luckily I have a secret weapon – these awesome parfait cups made with Outshine frozen fruit bars and Greek yogurt! You wouldn’t know it, but they are packed with real fruit, high in protein, low on calories and BIG on flavor!
These are perfect as a mid afternoon snack, an after workout refuel, and so much more. With a nice balance of fruit, protein, grains, and sweetness they satisfy without a heavy feeling. Snacks shouldn’t be heavy, they are meant to keep you fueled for your day – think of them as a pick me up to stay satisfied between meals.
Easy Frozen Fruit Bar Parfaits
I love Outshine bars for many reasons. The first and most obvious is because they are delicious, but also because I can eat them without guilt. They are full of fresh fruit, have less than 100 calories each and their ingredient lists don’t read like science experiments. My kids love them too!
So now lets make our parfaits. You will need an Outshine bar, Greek yogurt, and toppings. Since these are SO customizeable your topping choices are limitless, but I like to use things like plain granola, nuts, graham crackers, coconut shavings and a tiny bit of chocolate. Here is what you do:
1- Add 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt to a small bowl. I like to use vanilla because it goes really well with most flavors, but feel free to get creative with your combinations! Just make sure to keep an eye on the sugar content.
2- Cut one Outshine bar into cubes and add to your bowl.
3- Add your toppings.
My personal favorite is the coconut, almond and chocolate – it tastes JUST like one of my favorite candy bars but is ten times better for me! I also love strawberry with granola and pomegranate with graham cracker and fresh coconut.
I don’t know about you, but just looking at these are making me hungry! With all the different choices Outshine has to offer, your flavor combination options are endless! Now grab a spoon and dig in!
