Spiced Winter Fruit Parfait

We know that it can be a challenge getting fruit on the table during the cold, winter months.

But don't overlook the great taste and nutrition of dried fruit. It's just as tasty as fresh and always available. Serve this parfait for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. It's also a delicious way to get calcium and fiber into your family's diet.

Spiced Winter Fruit Parfait


2 1/2 cups 100 percent grape juice made from Concord grapes

1 2-inch piece cinnamon stick

1 3 x 1/2-inch strip orange zest

1 cup prunes

1 6-ounce package dried mixed fruit

2 cups fat-free vanilla yogurt

1 cup low-fat granola


1. Bring the grape juice, cinnamon stick and orange zest to a simmer. Add the dried mixed fruit and cook 15 minutes or until the fruits are plump and the juice is thickened. Let cool slightly. Remove the cinnamon stick and orange zest. Transfer to a covered container and chill at least 2 hours.

2. In 6 medium glasses, make layers using half of the fruit mixture, yogurt and granola. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.
