Sometimes I wish I could make more time for breakfast. It's one of the meals I happen to "skip" over. I'm just not hungry in the morning - and by the time I am, it's already time for lunch.
But a few weeks ago, when strawberries were still in full swing, I couldn't help but make these parfaits over and over and over. I wish I had decided to take pictures of them when we had an abundance of strawberries, but I got around to it when we only had a few (so the layers aren't as pronounced - but it was delicious, nonetheless!).
I just might have to switch over to blueberries since they're the fruit of choice in our CSA right now. Feel free to improvise with whatever fruits and yogurts you have on hand!
And don't forget to vote in the treat poll - I need something to make for the 4th of July! There's a little bit of everything, and no matter what gets picked, I'll try to give it a 4th of July twist!
1 cup strawberry-flavored yogurt (I used Stonyfield Organic Strawberry)
1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced
1 tablespoon sugar
2 strawberry-flavored Nutri-Grain Bars, chopped
In a small bowl, combine the strawberries and sugar. Let sit for 10 minutes.
In a mason jar (or bowl/cup/container) spoon about 1/3 of the yogurt for the base of the parfait.
Add your chopped strawberries. Top with another 1/3 of yogurt.
Add chopped Nutri-Grain bar pieces (you could also sub in some granola here, but I had the bars, so that's what I used). Top with remaining yogurt.
And you've got breakfast in about 10 minutes! I couldn't stop eating this - I was definitely sad when strawberry season slowed down. But like I said, I just may have to switch up the flavors and try this with the blueberries!
What's your favorite way to use yogurt and fruit?
Hope you all have a fantastic 4th of July weekend!
