I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been just a wee bit obsessed with diced mangos since I made the two-minute mango salsa a few weeks ago. Since mangos aren’t in season at the moment, picking up a can of Del Monte Diced Mangos makes my life super happy. Using them in my walnut mango yogurt parfait makes my life even super happier.
Yes, I am aware how grammatically incorrect that statement is. Just go with it, it works in this situation.
One of the things I just love about parfaits is how much you get in a single bite. Different flavors, different textures, it’s just great. Also, the name walnut mango yogurt parfait makes it a pretty self-explanatory dish, but I love the addition of Multi-Grain Cheerios, which add a delicate crunch as well as a slightly salty-sweet taste. It works well with the yogurt and mangos, which are more tart, and the walnuts, which are obviously nutty. Kind of like me, har har har.
Yummeh. Have I mentioned that walnuts are my fave? Out of all the nuts, I will always choose walnuts. And they look like little brains for a reason, because they are packed with brain-healthy nutrients! So feed your brain. It will thank you.
Walnut Mango Yogurt Parfait
