  • 2 cups (500 mL) Cheerios* Cereal
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) water
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) butter, melted
  • 1 cup (250 mL) frozen (thawed) fat-free whipped topping
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lime juice
  • 2 containers (each 175 g) low fat lemon or lime yogurt


  • 1
    Heat oven to 350ºF. Spray baking sheet and 12x12-inch sheet of foil with nonstick cooking spray. In food processor, place cereal and sugar; process with on-and-off motions until fine crumbs form. Add water and melted butter; process until thoroughly mixed.

    Spread cereal mixture evenly in centre of baking sheet. Use foil, sprayed side down, to press cereal mixture slightly; roll with rolling pin into 12x8-inch rectangle, about 1/8 inch thick. With sharp knife, score mixture into 1-inch squares.

    Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until squares are golden brown. Cool completely, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in small bowl, place whipped topping; fold in lime juice until blended.

    Break cereal mixture apart at scored lines. Reserve 4 cereal squares; crumble remaining squares into small pieces. In each dessert bowl or 12-oz parfait glass, layer 1/4 cup crumbled cereal squares, half container of yogurt and scant 1/4 cup whipped topping mixture. Repeat layers. Top each parfait with 2 reserved cereal squares.
