Winter yogurt chia parfait

Satisfy your sweet tooth and manage your hunger pangs without feeling weighed down. With plenty of fiber, protein and antioxidants, this fruity treat may become your favorite guilt-free snack. Pomegranate hint: Cut the fruit in half, hold over a bowl and pound the outside of the fruit with a wooden spoon. Most of the seeds will pop out easily.
