A deliciously light Tropical Yogurt Parfait for one, made with angel food cake, fresh lime whipped cream, tropical fruit, and low-fat whipped yogurt!
There’s just something about yogurt and fruit that go so well together, especially down here in Florida, and all my fellow deep south states.
It’s getting pretty hot already (our spring is pretty short), and a cold cup of yogurt paired with a bowl full of juicy strawberries or freshly sliced pineapple – even oranges wedges – quickly triggers thoughts of cooling down under and umbrella by the pool, after baking in the sun all morning.
Well, I don’t bake. I burn. Matter of fact, I tend to avoid sun exposure altogether for the most part.
White girl struggles. They’re real, folks.
Do you know what’s not a struggle? Tearing up one of these Tropical Yogurt Parfaits!
It took me years to get down with yogurt.
Especially the Greek kind. So thick and tart.
My favorite yogurt for a long time, once I learned what I’d been missing, was Yoplait’s Whipped Key Lime Pie flavor. It was just so light and fluffy and unlike any other gloppy kind that I’d tried.
I still love that flavor, but my palette has matured with my age.
Now, I have no issues cracking open a plain vanilla Greek yogurt, tossing in some berries or granola, and bam! Pre-workout snack.
I use it a lot in my baking, as well as in breakfast smoothies and dessert milkshakes. (Don’t tell Mr. Crumby that part!)
Of course, when I found out about Yoplait’s new Greek 100 Whips!, I had to try them.
Duh. My palette may have matured, but I still love a whipped yogurt.
I picked up one of every flavor (2 of the cherry and vanilla cupcake) from Publix on my latest after-work shopping trip, and proceeded to plow through all of them in four days. They’re that good.
Moderation need not apply with 100 calorie yogurt cups.
Before devouring my last few cups, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite ways to dress up your yogurt cup. And it involved leaving a couple yogurts untouched.
They’re so fun and pretty and flippin’ amazingly tasty! Cake and yogurt, fruit (like mango and papaya) and LIME whipped cream?? What’s not to like about that?
Plus, they’re individually sized, so there’s no temptation to overindulge! By following my recipe, each trifle is only 264 calories!
I mean, come on…it’s almost bikini season, after all. Gotta look good under that umbrella by the pool!

Amber @ Slim Pickin's Kitchen says
Yum! These trifles look awesome! I lurve the way you piped on the whipped cream on top. I don’t know how you don’t spend all your money at work. Oh, wait. Yes, I do. You probably want to get out of there as soon as possible, huh?
What a fun idea…these look so pretty and sound so good! Just my kind of treat. xo, Catherine

My favorite yogurt flavor is strawberry
Bree Talks says
I know it sounds boring, but I think I love vanilla the most cause any add-in tastes great with it, but I also like to treat myself with Key LIme and Cherry sometimes. This looks yummy!
Sandra Watts says
I actually quite enjoy vanilla yogurt. I do however like to experience new flavors when they come out. One I recently tried that was good was a vanilla coconut and a strawberry cheesecake. That trifle looks so good btw.
I love these whips! I added some strawberry yogurt to a graham cracker and dipped a side of it in dark chocolate. Ohh yeah! I’m going to pin this so I’ll have it for those summer days. I’m stopping by from the blog hop & I hope your having a great Wednesday!
Chrystal @ YUM eating says

Those look oh-so-yummy! Perfect for Easter brunch or spring/summer time! I’ll have to keep this recipe in mind, I love how you used tropical fruits!
My favorite flavor is Lemon.
Amanda @ The Refurbished Home says
I think I’m offended, apparently I have an immature palette. 😉 I love the key lime pie flavor. This recipe looks fantastic. I live in Michigan so it’s a bit early to go tropical yet, but I will definitely be trying this when it gets warmer out!
My favorite is cherry.
I love strawberry flavored yogurt.
Ashley ~ 3 Little Greenwoods says
Black cherry yogurt! YUM! Love your pretty trifle!
These look so yummy! It’s so disappointing everything has to contain artificial sweeteners. I cannot have any of them. It gives me horrible, horrible stomach pains 🙁
My favorite is the blueberry
Thomas Murphy says

Anastasia Falling says
Strawberry is one of my favorite yogurt flavors, but I love to mi it up 😉
