I’ve been trying to get in the habit of making breakfast (either to eat at home or take to work when I’m running late). One easy and quick dish is a fruit parfait. Here’s a photo of one of my creations. All you need is yogurt, fruit and granola. Yes, it’s that easy.
A dollop of Greek yogurt (I prefer Fage plain yogurt)
A sprinkle of granola (I like Trader Joe’s Just The Cluster Vanilla Almond Granola)
Cut up fresh fruit that is in-season (here I have white peaches, pineapple, blueberries, and strawberries)
Another dollop of Greek yogurt
Top it off with a sprinkle of granola
* For a healthy option, you can add flax seed with your granola
The picture is pretty and the colors are great but it’s even better when you eat it. The greek yogurt has a think consistency that reminds me of mouse which works well with the juicy fruits. I like using plain yogurt because the fruit and granola already have a sweet taste – you don’t want to over do it with the sugar in your yogurt too.
