As summer approaches, it’s important to have an arsenal of quick and tasty snacks on hand. Iris, a DaVita dietitian from Florida, brings us Lemon Yogurt Parfait, a delicious recipe that perfectly suits the bill for those hot days when time is of the essence. This recipe calls for Greek yogurt, which has more than twice the amount of protein than regular yogurt, and is thicker, creamier and generally more satisfying. As well, Greek yogurt is lower in carbohydrates and sodium than regular yogurt. Lemon (or lime) juice is a great way to enhance flavor without added sugar or sodium. And the best part of the recipe is there’s only one step—it’s quite literally an instant solution to a renal-friendly, refreshing snack.
