(6 Servings)

1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits in 100% juice, drained
2 cans (15 ounces) mandarin oranges in water, no sugar added, drained
2 cups nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
6 pieces candy corn

1. Drain pineapple tidbits and mandarin oranges.
2. Layer 1/3 cup pineapple tidbits, 1/3 cup mandarin oranges and 1/3 cup yogurt in each of the 6 clear plastic cups
(9 ounces).
3. Keep parfaits in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Garnish with a piece of candy corn right before serving.

Kayla’s Notes:
• Select fruit canned in 100% fruit juice or water rather than syrup when choosing canned fruits.
• Try fresh fruit in place of canned fruit.
• Swap out any yellow and orange fruit you like best such as using peaches or cantaloupe for mandarin oranges.
