Simple & Delicious Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits

Simple & Delicious Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits

DISCLOSURE: I received some of the products featured in this post free for review. Content is 100% my own.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but during the school year we have very little time to eat. Fruit and yogurt breakfast parfaits are the perfect option for those rushed mornings! Not only are they simple to make and absolutely delicious, but they are packed with protein and nutrients!


Juggling the schedules of four kids, a husband and myself is enough of a struggle, so I need to keep things easy and find ways to save time. These simple fruit and yogurt breakfast parfaits can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until it's time to eat. All I have to do is sprinkle on the topping (so it doesn't get mushy) and hand them over to my kids with a spoon!

Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits

Ingredients:


  • Strawberries
  • Vanilla Yogurt
  • Oats and Honey Protein Granola
  • Sugar


Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits

Make:

1. The first step is the secret to making these Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits taste so good! Wash and slice the strawberries (I use 10-12 large strawberries) and put them in a food storage container.  Sprinkle on 1 TBSP of sugar, put them in the fridge and let them sit for a half hour. This gives them the perfect amount of sweetness and softens them!

Sugared Strawberries

2. Fill a dessert cup halfway with vanilla yogurt. Spoon on a layer of the sugared strawberries.

3. If you are making these ahead of time, cover the dessert cups with plastic wrap and store in the fridge. If not, skip ahead!

4. Just before you are ready to eat, sprinkle the protein granola over top of the fruit and yogurt parfait. If you do this any earlier, the granola gets too mushy!

Alternatives: 

  • If you're feeling adventurous, add another layer of yogurt, fruit and granola. I have done this before for myself!
  • These can be made with ANY fruit. My kids love them with bananas, sliced peaches, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, too!
  • There are so many toppings you can add. Try chia seeds, wheat germ and almonds!


Enjoy!


Lily loves to eat them as a snack, too. I try to make a bunch ahead of time and they are usually gone within a day or two!

Liam, my sweet toddler tornado, gets his Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfait served in his own bowl!

Although his manners are improving, he still tosses his bowl overboard at times! The Nuby BPA Free Sure Grip Suction Bowl prevents this from happening. This 100% silicone bowl suctions strongly to most flat surfaces and prevents the bowl from tipping, sliding, and being thrown. This mama, who cleans up MORE than enough messes, is thrilled with any product that prevents them!

No matter how much Liam eats, he seems to always be hungry! His new favorite cup is the Nuby Snack N' Sip!


Nuby Snack N' Sip

This 2 in 1 cup holds 9 ounces of liquid and 4.5 ounces of food. It's so convenient because Liam can snack and drink from the same container. It's perfect for car rides and life on the go, thanks to the No Spill flexible soft silicone straw, and the lid that seals to prevent spills and keep food from getting stale.

Liam loves this cup because he can take it outside...
