Savin' Maven Monday: DIY Lifeway Kefir Parfait

***I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster's Vox Box Program***

Happy Monday my loves.

I hope each of you had a very great and prosperous weekend. Mine was actually a good mix of rest and productivity. I was finally able to get a few things done around my house, snap some OOTD pics for the week, and my favorite part was going shopping for this all new Lifeway Kefir product that I was able to try compliments of Influenster.

I've never eaten Kefir before, let alone even heard of it. I assumed it was some type of tofu or some other sort of gross organic product that I would regret agreeing to sample. Needless to say, I was very pleased when I went into my local Harris Teeter and saw that it was a smoothie type concoction.

Being that I'm attempting to eat a little better, I knew immediately what I would do with the product. At first I was thinking that I would make a yummy smoothie but then I decided against that and figured I would try my hand at making a parfait.

Upon tasting the product, I fell ALL.THE.WAY in love. Its yogurt like consistency made perfect for my idea of parfait.

Since this was my very first time making a parfait, there was no rhyme or reason as to the exact measurements of the ingredients. I just poured about 1/4 cup of Kefir into a huge wine glass, added some fresh bananas and strawberries, and instead of granola, I topped everything with Special K corn flakes cereal.

Talk about the most delicious thing I've ever tasted. I can't wait to make more for snack time. I'm hooked!

What kind of recipes have you tried lately?

I can't wait to hear from you!
Thanks for reading.


  1. That looks good :).
    How many calories and such is in it?

    1. It was so delish. The Kefir has 140 calories per cup and the Special K has 110 calories per cup.
