Chick-fil-A® is making one of its healthiest menu items even more nutritious. The company has introduced a new Greek Yogurt Parfait at its 1,900-plus restaurants nationwide.
The parfait has half the sugar and twice the protein – seven grams in each serving – of the previous yogurt parfait per ounce and is made from all-natural ingredients with no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors. The 110 calorie-per-serving Greek Yogurt Parfait is served with fresh strawberries and blueberries and can be topped with a choice of Chick-fil-A Harvest Nut Granola or chocolate cookie crumbles – for those wanting to add a touch of indulgence.
“Our customers have been asking us for menu items that are higher in protein and we’re listening,” said David Farmer, vice president of product strategy and development. “The parfait is delicious and not only makes breakfast better for our guests — it’s available all day as a side item, snack or dessert.”
Chick-fil-A partnered exclusively with health and wellness company fairlife, LLC, – a company known for its commitment to caring for animals, sustainability and high-quality, all-natural products — to make the farm-to-table Greek yogurt. The yogurt is made at Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana, using the company’s patented filtration process.
“Our proprietary technique allows us to preserve the protein and other nutrients that are packed into our fresh, high-quality milk,” said Anders Porter, director of communications for fairlife. “And better milk makes better yogurt. You won’t find anything like this Greek yogurt anywhere else,” he said, adding that chefs from Chick-fil-A’s culinary team worked hand-in-hand with the farm for seven months to perfect the blend of flavors.
The fairlife Greek yogurt is only available at Chick-fil-A. The price for a 5 oz. parfait will start at $2.39.
