Trail Mix Parfait

By Jessica Campbell, MS, FNTP

A trail mix parfait is the perfect healthy treat for a holiday gift. You can cater it to your recipient: whether they like GORP (good old raisins and peanuts), health trends like goji berries and pumpkin seeds, or are allergic to nuts. You can omit nuts and use dried cherries, sunflower seeds and coconut flakes. Whatever your pleasure, this easy to layer treat can be made by the kids and looks really festive in a mason jar with a pretty ribbon.

Choose a theme

  • Red cranberries and green pumpkin seeds for Christmas
  • Dried apricots, cashews, walnuts, and dried cherries for fall colors
  • Coconut flakes, dried pineapple, mango and macadamias for tropical delights
  • I used to love Almond Joy's, now I like almonds, coconut flakes and dark chocolate chips

 Be creative and follow your taste buds!
