Berry Granola Fool

Harvard researchers found that women who ate three or more daily servings of blueberries and strawberries, both of which are often found in frozen berry medleys at grocery stores, were 32 percent less likely to suffer a heart attack. Most traditional fool recipes are made with heavy cream, but Greek yogurt is a far healthier alternative.
