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.
