Coconut Yogurt Parfait with Strawberries and Blackberries

It’s still winter…. ugh…

Do you need a break from the cold? An escape to a happy place, maybe a bit tropical?

Sometimes, that happy place involves coconut. Actually, I think all happy places should have an option for coconut.

I found Chobani coconut yogurt at the store the other day. I thought… hmm… this could work in a great smoothie or yogurt parfait. Then, I realized, I’ve never made a blackberry parfait and voila, here it is. I made it fancy, too, so I could share one with my sweetie.

I used graham crackers for the crumbly layers, but you can use oatmeal or other cereal, if you prefer.
