My blog-buddy over at Frugal Fine Living inspired me with one of her posts to make a parfait for breakfast. I’m trying to eat healthier and I really want to add more variety to my meals, especially breakfast. Parfaits are so easy! All you need is yogurt, fruit, and cereal of your choice.
You start with a nice clear receptacle. It has to be clear because you really need to see how pretty it is. I have little ice cream sundae dishes but they were too small. So I used this heavy bar glass and I liked how it turned out…wait…you’ll see.
I used Greek yogurt, vanilla flavored. If you’ve never used Greek yogurt before, try it, you’re in for a treat! It is so creamy, even the fat free version. Add about half the yogurt to your glass and spread it even.
Then add your fruit.
I chose blueberries.
Next add the cereal. Choose something healthy like granola or kashi brand cereals. Adding Fruity Pebbles to your parfait defeats the healthy eating purpose. I used Kashi Go Lean.
I think for my next parfait (gotta get more Greek yogurt) I’m going to use bananas and Kashi’s Coacoa Beach granola.
