Quick Granola Parfait
‘Parfait’ is a French word that translates to ‘perfect’ in English — so whoever decided to call layers of tangy Greek yogurt, crunchy, sweet granola, and fresh fruit a ‘parfait’ is a genius in my book. Because it’s literally perfect. These granola and yogurt parfaits pack a nutritious balance of protein and carbs, making in a smart choice for breakfast, a snack or even lunch.
Using my homemade granola, these come together in just a few minutes. I like the flavor combo of mango (along with its health benefits – read more about that here) and blueberries (also an antioxidant rich superfood). Paired with the probiotic power of Greek yogurt, these parfaits are the kind of breakfast your body will thank you for.
Easy Balanced Breakfast Parfait
Breakfast is such an easy meal to grab something processed and run out the door. This option is equally easy, AND it checks SO many boxes for your daily nutrition.
I literally just asked myself why I’m not having this parfait for breakfast every morning. Can we also talk about how pretty it is? These work beautifully for entertaining or just to treat yourself and honor your health. They’re kid approved, too! How parfait!
