Tips and Additional Info

  • Portion Control: This recipe is designed as a single serving. For bariatric patients, consider consuming only half the parfait if you're in an early post-operative stage.
  • Texture Variations: If you prefer a smoother texture, blend the Greek yogurt with the banana pudding instead of layering.
  • Fruit Addition: For added nutrients, top with a few slices of fresh banana or berries, but be mindful of the extra carbs and sugars.
  • Nut Alternatives: If you're allergic to walnuts, try using crushed almonds or pecans, or omit the nuts entirely.
  • Make-Ahead Option: Prepare the parfait without the nuts and cinnamon, store in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours, and add the toppings just before serving.
  • Temperature Tip: For a more ice-cream-like consistency, freeze the parfait for about 30 minutes before serving.
