Recipe by Manami

Haven't tried this particular parfait but have tasted them separately. The prep time is 15 minutes but the cook time is 8 minutes so it is actually quick! To save time, use instant chocolate pudding and store-bought granola. The pudding isn't as rich, but it is quick! They are packed with beneficial whole grains and dairy for a satisfying snack. Southern Living Magazine, September 2007 edition. Chill time 2 hours. Also, if preparing the granola, use old fashioned regular oats, not instant. You will have about 1-1/2 cups of Granola left over.
