This Very Berry Yogurt Parfait can be a delicious breakfast – or divide it into portions for a yummy snack. Enjoy it using fresh or frozen blueberries, but we recommend fresh strawberries. Eating breakfast that looks like a tempting dessert is a pretty awesome way to start the day. You could go with pancakes covered in stewed fruit, streusel covered sky-high muffins, or rich and buttery pastries. All delicious, but probably best saved for a weekend treat.
A select group of colorful fruits and vegetables, such as grapes, broccoli, chile peppers, and strawberries, is rich in inflammation fighting antioxidants and salicylic acid. (Yes, that’s the inflammation quencher that’s in aspirin.) Research shows that these superfoods can protect your heart. What’s best is they taste a whole lot better than aspirin!
This Very Berry Yogurt Parfait is made with Yoplait Light yogurt, a little crunchy granola, and fresh fruit, they’re perfect for a waist-line friendly breakfast on the go. Spoon it all into a cute little mason jar, screw the lid on and throw it in your bag for a breakfast or snack you can look forward to when you get to the office.
To prevent the granola from going soft, they should made and eaten the same day. If you want to make them the night before, just leave out the granola and wrap it up in a little bag. Then you can sprinkle it on top when you come to eat it.
