Quick & Healthy Breakfast – Yogurt Parfait


Happy Monday!  Here is your Meatless Monday recipe idea.  This week, it’s all about breakfast.  You don’t have to have bacon & eggs to get a protein-packed breakfast.  Try this delicious, quick & healthy meatless alternative!

Fruit-flavored yogurts have a ton of extra sugar and not much protein, so consider making this instead for a decadent breakfast with both the fiber and protein you need to make it until lunch time.

Instead of flavored yogurt, I use plain non-fat Greek yogurt that is high in protein and I add my own fresh fruit to avoid the unnecessary sugar.  I have paid close to $4.00 to buy something similar at Starbucks, and their version didn’t even have fruit!

Here’s what you will need to make your own:

3/4 cup sliced strawberries, raspberries, or other juicy fruit

1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

8 oz non-fat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup of natural granola (Udi’s Au Naturel is my favorite!)

Wild local honey

How to make it:

1) Layer half of the strawberries & half of the blueberries on the bottom.  Add a drizzle of honey for extra sweetness.
