Key Ingredients for these Candy Corn Parfaits
- Mandarin Oranges– these little mini oranges are so juicy, sweet, and the kids love that they are bite sized. Easy to peel and perfect to layer in these parfait cups. Mandarin Oranges are loaded with Vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. They contain high amounts of Vitamin A which is great for our vision and skin health, too.
- Pineapple– we love fresh pineapple in out house! So juicy, sweet, and the kids just love it. Pineapple is a great source of Vitamin C, magnesium, copper, and folate.

Then layer the Mandarin Orange slices in the bottom of the glass. Add the pineapple chunks in the middle. Then top it off with a scoop of Greek Yogurt. Serve right away and enjoy!
If making for a party, store the parfaits in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
