1. You can use flavored yogurt, in that case you do not nee to use the brown sugar.
2. You can serve with many many more berries, like blackberry, raspberry, etc. I only had strawberry so I used it.
3. You can use almonds or walnuts as well along with the berries. Since I had to avoid proteins at that time, I did not add to the parfait, but would have really loved to, considering the way I love nuts!
