Yogourt-fruit parfaits

I've been sort of obsessed with making these little parfaits for dessert lately. They are delicious and quite healthy, so a guilt-free treat to indulge in. The basic idea is to layer fruit and yogourt and fruit syrup in a glass (use a wine glass to look extra fancy). I've been using mango, banana, and some of my homemade raspberry syrup, some cassis syrup, or a bit of juice. They look awfully pretty for something so simple. No reason you couldn't add nuts, chocolate chips, raisins, or anything else that took your fancy.
