Tropical Treat

I love when I can take something we love to eat and use it in a totally new way for something even yummier we love to eat! That's exactly what you get when you combine the ideas of Great Grains cereal for dessert!

Between the pool parties, camping trips, barbecues and vacations, there is no question that the summer season brings non-stop fun! When there's no slowing down, you'll want to have easy go-to recipes on hand for whatever comes your way. That's why Post Great Grains created the Tropical Crunch Parfait, a refreshing summer-themed recipe that will impress your guests but WON'T cost you cooking time or extra trips to the grocery store!

The combination of whole grain flakes, nuts and dried banana of Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch cereal complements layers of fresh banana, pineapple and Greek yogurt for the perfect tropical experience – also equally creamy and crunchy!
 Tropical Crunch Parfait
3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1 medium banana, sliced
3 oz. fresh pineapple chunks
1/2 cup Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch cereal
1 tsp. honey
1 mint leaf sprig
Slice banana and chop pineapple chunks. Place in bowl and put to side. Spoon 1/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt into parfait glass. Add first layer of banana and pineapple mix, followed by 1/4 cup Great Grains Banana Nut Crunch cereal. Repeat process. Top with honey drizzle and a dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt. Garnish with mint leaf sprig.
