Breakfast parfaits almost don’t even count as recipes because they’re so incredibly easy to make. Take soy yogurt, granola, and fruit, then layer away—that’s it. Yes, it’s super-easy, but that doesn’t mean the end result is boring.
The crunchy granola and cool creamy yogurt offer a wonderful contrast. The variety of fruits—you can use almost any type of fruit you like—results in sweet bursts of flavor and healthy vitamins.
I know—“parfait” and “healthy” are two words that you don’t always find together. Dessert parfaits are typically made by layering ice cream, not yogurt, with other not-so-healthy ingredients. But when you replace the ice cream with soy yogurt and opt for fruits and a little granola, you’re left with a delicious and healthy breakfast treat.
