When I saw these over at The Yummy Life (which you’ll definitely want to check out) I knew I had to make them! Now I make these often, mostly so that my daughter who has moved out comes home to pick up her supply and visit me! Being a University student, these are a great breakfast that she can just grab and go…
While the Oatmeal Parfaits in the photo are in glass mason jars which I just stack in the fridge. I purchase plastic containers for the “on the go” Oatmeals… I find the 1 cup jars too small, and the 2 cup container to be a little big… still looking for the perfect 1.5 cup container (why do I feel like Goldilocks here?).
This is an amazingly delicious, healthy and filling breakfast! Chia seeds are little nutritional powerhouses and are a great addition. While they seem to be a little pricey, a tiny bit goes a very long way!
You can use any combination of frozen fruit and yogurt flavors to create endless possibilities! Don’t be afraid to play with the flavors including different yogurt and fruit combinations (I often use peach yogurt and frozen mangoes).
You can also add in tons of other goodies like:
- chopped nuts
- chocolate chips
- Nutella and more!
You can adjust the level of any of the ingredients in this recipe depending how thick you like your oatmeal to be!
This recipe was inspired by The Yummy Life who also has some amazing fruit combinations so be sure to check her version out!
