Thank you for being patient with the new site conversion. I know it has some bugs, and I’m working on getting those fixed. I’m also still learning how to navigate and use the new site. Thus . . . the continued slow down of posting. But, I’m getting MUCH closer to getting this under control, and then you’ll get some more consistent posts. Yay!
Today I’m bringing you a delicious breakfast idea for Mother’s Day. Of course you can make this for any day, but I also think it would be so great for Mother’s Day. It seems like we’re always looking for great breakfast/brunch ideas for this sweet day, and I decided that a parfait is at the top of my list this year. Not only do I love me a good parfait, but this definitely reminds me of my sweet mom. My momma loves her some good granola stirred right into her yogurt. While a parfait is pretty much that idea, it sure looks a lot prettier. And, don’t you think your moms deserve “pretty” on Mother’s Day? I certainly do.
These parfaits come together in a flash. All you do is layer your favorite non-fat Greek yogurt, Fit Granola, and chopped berries. Easy, delicious, and oh-so-yummy! As you can see, I made my own granola so that I could watch the calories here. (Granola is a tricky food that sometimes makes us feel like we’re eating healthy, when really we’re eating oats covered in sugars. If you click over to my Fit Granola, you’ll see a lighter version that is much better for you than most varieties you’ll find at the store.)
Being a mom myself, I might just throw in a Mother’s Day request to my hubby for this parfait. He’ll be glad I want something so easy for my Mother’s Day breakfast.
Greek Yogurt & Mixed Berry Parfait
Mimi’s Fit Foods
5.3 to 6-ounce container of non-fat Greek Yogurt (I used Yoplait’s Strawberry/Raspberry)
1/3 cup Fit Granola
1/2 cup mixed berries, chopped (I used strawberries and blackberries)
Using a clear drinking glass (or ice cream dish, or other container of your choice), put 1/3 of the Greek yogurt in the bottom, layer with 1/3 of the granola, and then 1/3 of the chopped berries. Repeat these layers two additional times.

Yum! I love yogurt parfait’s! This looks delicious! However, I’m always a bit nervous when it comes to greek yogurt. I tried it once and it tasted like sour cream. I know you said you like the yoplait…I haven’t tried that before. I’ll try the Yoplait but, do you have any other recommendations with a “less sour cream tasting” greek yogurt?
Yes! Without a doubt, the plain Greek yogurt will taste sour-creamish regardless of brand. Buying a flavored Greek yogurt always helps. I like Yoplait because they use real sugar instead of sweeteners with aspartame. Obviously, the sugar takes some of the bitter edge off. Other brands we like at our house include Dannon Light & Fit, Chobani, and Oikos. Hope that helps!
