Raspberries, blueberries, yogurt, and granola make for a festive Fourth of July breakfast parfait.

You may think you've seen all the red, white, and blue food combinations for the Fourth of July holiday. But this is really good for breakfast, and it just so happens that blueberries and raspberries are in harvest season right now.

So by all means take advantage of these lovely seasonal fruits at their peak of freshness!  

Red, white, and blueberry yogurt parfaits 

1 cup yogurt (plain Greek yogurt)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoon honey (sugar-free honey or Splenda)
1/2 pint fresh raspberries
1/2 pint fresh blueberries
1/4 cup granola

1. Whisk together yogurt, vanilla and honey (or Splenda)

2. Using parfait glasses, alternate layers of yogurt, blueberries and raspberries.

3. You can cover them at this point and refrigerate several hours or overnight, although they can be served right away.

4. Sprinkle with granola just before serving.
