Fresh & Fruity Breakfast!
- Who says you can’t have cake for breakfast? Breakfast parfaits taste and look like little decadent desserts but have layers of nutritious berries and yogurt.
- We add in chocolate flavor with either layer of chocolate granola or chocolate muffins (homemade or Garden Lites veggie-based muffins)!
- No-cook, no-bake, and easy to make ahead of time!
- No fancy parfait glasses? Use any clear cups or small mason jars to see the layers!
What’s in a Strawberry Parfait?
YOGURT: Vanilla Greek yogurt is thicker and firmer but your favorite yogurt can be used in this recipe. Get creative with other flavors of yogurt-like strawberry, banana, or mix and match them all!
STRAWBERRY SAUCE: Of course, you can use sliced berries but we love to make a quick strawberry sauce so it soaks into the yogurt and granola layers. Try any jewel-toned fruits like strawberries, blueberries, cherries, raspberries, and even rhubarb to create a signature sauce. Double up the sauce, it can be enjoyed on everything from ice cream to waffles.
How to Make a Strawberry Parfait
- Prepare strawberry sauce per recipe below and allow to cool.
- Layer sliced strawberries on the bottom of 4 parfait cups.
- Add layers of granola or muffins, yogurt, and strawberry sauce.
- Make parfaits the night before and cover them with plastic wrap. Just before serving, top with whipped cream if desired.
- Keep leftover strawberry parfaits covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
- Serve individually or scoop out leftovers and spread them in a casserole dish. Add fresh whipped cream and desired toppings and serve.
