This retro-inspired, but modernly-flavored dessert is best made at least 30 minutes before serving, allowing time for the gingersnap crumble to soften slightly.
Ingredients

gingersnap(s)

4 item(s)

fat-free cherry vanilla yogurt

12 oz, or black cherry yogurt

fat free whipped topping

cup(s)

kiwifruit(s)

2 medium, peeled and chopped

unsalted pecan halves

halves, from Georgia, toasted if desired

Instructions

  1. Put gingersnaps in a medium size re-sealable plastic bag and seal bag. With a rolling pin or large heavy spoon, gently crumble cookies. (The mixture should be somewhat coarse, not finely ground.) Set aside.
  2. Spoon yogurt into a small bowl. Add whipped topping and gently fold in to blend. Do not over mix.
  3. To assemble in individual 6-ounce glass serving pieces, spoon about 2 tablespoons of crushed gingersnaps into bottom of each glass. Top each with 1/4 cup of yogurt mixture. Divide kiwi evenly among glasses and top each with about another 1/4 cup of yogurt mixture. Coarsely chop pecan halves and sprinkle on top for garnish.
  4. Refrigerate parfaits at least 30 minutes or up to two hours. Serve chilled. Yields 1 parfait per serving.
