Make breakfast special with this appealing Breakfast Yogurt Parfait. This is a very easy, yet effective way to impress the family or house guests.
As a child, an Ice-cream or Yogurt Parfait were our special treat if we behaved well enough while eating out in a restaurant.
I decided to recreate this childhood memory as a healthy breakfast option by using yogurt, fresh fruit, nuts, and seeds to create the same beautiful eye-catching layers.
A good quality, nutty granola can also be used for the crunchy layer. Use any of your favourite seasonal fruits for the fruit layers. I especially like seeded cherries or lychees, or chopped up peaches or apricots in my yogurt parfait.
- 1/2 cup plain dairy or coconut yogurt
- 1/4 cup fresh berries of your choice
- 1/2 small mango, cubed
- 1/4 cup coarsely chopped nuts and/or seeds
Simply start with your yogurt layer then add a layer of your fruits, nuts and/or seeds, followed again by another layer of yogurt. Then repeat. Decorate the top with extra fruit, nuts and/or seeds. You can also add a drizzle of raw honey or maple syrup to add some extra sweetness.
