Our favorite easy, healthy and delicious breakfast: Parfait! This simple breakfast is made from layers of fruit, honey-vanilla yogurt, granola and a little bit of honey for sweetness.

Parfaits can be prepped ahead of time and enjoyed for a week of healthy breakfasts (more on this below) or can be made in 10 minutes or less. (They’re perfect for a busy morning!) Other healthy make-ahead breakfast options: Overnight OatsHealthy Breakfast Cookies, or Energy Bites.

One of our favorite things to do as a family is to take a road trip to St. George (about 5-6 hours….feels like 10 with kiddos, though… hah!) and spend a weekend playing outside and exploring the beautiful parks. There aren’t a whole lot of places to stop on the trip down, but if we’re gassing the car we usually end up near a McDonald’s. The boys are obsessed with McDonald’s Parfait (yogurt, granola, and berries) and I’m glad they’ll pick that over fries for a quick snack!

When we aren’t on the road, I like to make homemade parfaits and the kids love them. Today I’m sharing our favorite healthy yogurt parfait recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh strawberries
  • 2 cups berries (I use a mix of blackberries, raspberries and blueberries -- but use whatever you have on hand.)
  • 3 cups vanilla yogurt (Greek or plain; my favorite is Greek God's honey vanilla yogurt)
  • 1 cup granola (homemade or store-bought)
  • Optional: drizzle of honey per parfait

Instructions

  • PREP: Wash and thoroughly dry the fruit. If the fruit is at all wet, it affects the taste of the parfait. Remove stems from any berries and thinly slice the strawberries. Toss together all of the fruit.
  • ASSEMBLE: Layer 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt into the bottom of 4 cups. Alternate layers of fruit, granola and then yogurt. Repeat layers until glasses are filled to the top.
  • EAT: Enjoy right after making to avoid soggy granola. Parfaits don't sit or store well.
