Parfait Perfection

One of the best things about summer is all the fresh fruit!!!!!!
We decided that our summer fruit was so good that we should have it for dinner! First I made a Maple Vanilla Yogurt. Fresh maple syrup combined with madagascar vanilla bean paste really took it to the next level. I made a homemade caramel granola nut crisp for the topping. And then the star of the entire meal......
Fresh diced peaches, mangoes, raspberries and blueberries.
The peaches and berries were just picked this week and soooooo good! 
Fruit Parfait anyone? 
Make that 2 Fruit Parfaits anyone?
One was simply not enough!
