Delicious, Healthy Snack!

Awhile back I went to a friend of mine's for a book study (aka, excuse to get together and chat with some wonderful ladies without kiddos) and she had a little parfait bar set out for us. 
The layout consisted of greek yogurt, a few kinds of granola, strawberries, raspberries, kiwi and some honey and agave nectar.   

I know greek yogurt has become kind of "trendy" and I have tried it in several recipes and haven't liked it.  I don't like plain yogurt or flavored ones either,  I just don't like any of it.  So when I saw this I was a little nervous but wanted to eat some since she had it set up for us. 
I'm soooo glad I tried it. 

 I discovered something wonderful, when you combine vanilla greek yogurt, strawberries and Nature's Path Organic Coconut Chia Granola (even if you don't like coconut, still try it because I generally don't either) it is such a great snack or sometimes in my case, lunch .  I have tried it with some other granola I had and it's not as good.  This particular granola makes it for me.  Another plus, it's actually good for you!  

Do you ever make parfaits?  If so what's your favorite combination?
