This delicious Strawberry Breakfast Parfait will get your day started off on the right foot! It’s loaded with healthy and delicious ingredients!
Mornings are a blur of activity for me with getting the kids fed, dressed, combed, etc – not to mention packing lunches and making sure homework gets into the right school bag and what not. So that’s why most days I don’t actually have breakfast until the kids are off at school. With the house quiet, it’s nice to sit down after all that chaos and just enjoy my breakfast while I get ready to work. This Strawberry Breakfast Parfait tastes like dessert, but is full of healthy ingredients.
I love making a big batch of homemade granola and keeping it on hand for lots of recipes, including this one. Get the recipe for my homemade granola here.
Of course, if you’re not a big fan of strawberries, you could substitute any other fruit, or combination or fruits you like. In the summer, in season berries are delicious. Kiwi and banana are a great combination, too!
Strawberry Breakfast Parfait
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup granola
- 1 cup strawberries hulled and sliced
- Optional additional ingredients: wheat germ honey
- In a pint sized mason jar, layer half of the ingredients, starting with the yogurt, followed by granola and top with strawberries. Repeat with the remaining half.
- If desired, sprinkle the top with wheat germ and a drizzle of honey.
- Serve immediately.
I just love this versatile recipe… if you can even call it that – it’s just so simple! If you’re looking to add a bit more nutrition, consider topping your parfait with a teaspoon of wheat germ, ground flax seeds, or chia seeds. A drizzle of honey is always a nice addition, too.
This actually makes a great dessert for the kids, as well. Add a dollop of homemade whipped cream to the top and you’ve got a dreamy treat! Get the recipe for homemade whipped cream here.
Whether you choose to have it for breakfast or dessert, you’re going to love this simple but delicious recipe!
