Blueberry Yogurt Parfait

This post is sponsored by Lantana Foods and Fit Approach. All opinions are my own. 

I’ve always been a hummus-lover, but I’ll admit that the idea of fruit hummus had me questioning life. To me, hummus has always been a savory condiment enjoyed on toast, crackers and veggies. However, the team at Lantana Foods has completely flipped any preconceived notions I had of hummus on its head and in the process, this unique kind of yogurt parfait was imagined.

Lantana Hummus is known for thoughtful and bold flavor combinations like Black Bean, Edamame, and Sriracha Carrot hummus, but they’ve recently expanded into fruit-based hummus. All of their flavors are made with other beans, vegetables and fruit (not chickpeas). They’re non-GMO, vegan, gluten free and kosher!

I first used the Lantana Foods Fruit Hummus in these Gluten-free Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies. And as if the outcome of that recipe wasn’t convincing enough, I then dug into the Lantana Foods Blueberry hummus with a spoon. I lifted a heaping spoonful to my lips and took a tentative taste. Zing! The flavor was as bright as the color. I quickly devoured the entire spoonful and I knew without a doubt I had to pair this variation with something tart and creamy – a Greek-style yogurt parfait.

When I created this recipe, I envisioned beautiful layers of fluffy white yogurt and sweet, bright blueberry hummus with a lot of texture and flavor so every spoonful was like a surprise explosion of different combinations – creamy, crunchy, sweet and tangy. The result was this Blueberry Yogurt Parfiat with Chia Pudding.

One of the reasons I’m so drawn to a yogurt parfait as a breakfast or snack is because it packs tons of flavor and a lot of nutritional punch. I love getting creative with toppings based on what I have at home – granola, dried coconut, fresh fruit, nuts, hemp seeds, cacao nibs. I love crunch! This is a healthy and satiating breakfast or snack anytime of year. Switch out the fruit hummus flavor (Lantana has mango, cherry and strawberry flavors too) and toppings as you’d like.
