Spa Cuisine: Breakfast Parfait

Share on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on Tumblr

This recipe was originally published in my book “Chin Deep in Bubbles” on page 63. Since then I have made a few changes to the recipe. This is a simple, delicious, dessert-like breakfast, lunch or snack that is good for you. It’s also a great way to get your children to eat fresh fruit.

Because Greek yogurt is so high in fiber and protein, it is very filling. I think you’ll be surprised how little of this delicious treat you’ll need to feel satisfied.

~ Breakfast Parfait ~

In a pretty parfait glass, layer:

Greek, vanilla yogurt (such as Chobani or Oikos)

home made granola (or your favorite brand of boxed granola, a good one is Kashi)

  fresh strawberries, blueberries or raspberries (that have been washed and macerated in orange juice or a little orange marmalade)

  Repeat so you get alternating layers.

pretty and yummy!

    Hi. One of my favorite restaurants many years ago had a breakfast parfait with yogurt, tropical fruits, layered, in a parfait. It was so large that Mom and I shared it. Refreshing, relatively light, flavorable, adaptable. We loved it. This looks so good too that I want to try it this summer.
