Notes & Options:
There are lots of ways to modify this cranberry parfait to spruce it up, down or just change it to suit your palate. You can try:
– Using sour cream instead of Greek yogurt if you want a heavier, fuller consistency.
– Add 1/2 tsp each of cloves, all spice and ginger to the cranberry sauce if you want it holiday spicy-like.
– Some people like letting this sit overnight in the fridge before serving it. They enjoy the fact that the 2 parts have mixed into each other a little more and ‘marinated’ together.
– Add in a layer of granola or even leftover, crushed sugar cookies to make it even more festive.
Make it Healthy – Replace the sugar with granulated sweetener in both the homemade cranberry topping and the Greek yogurt mixture. Replacing this one ingredient (sugar) will turn this recipe into a healthy, sugar-free snack instead of a sweet treat.
