Breakfast Parfait – Healthy Option

Our breakfast parfait is creamy, crunchy, sweet, and tart…what more does anyone need to start their day?

The Backstory: This creamy, crunchy, and naturally sweet breakfast parfait is a healthful (and delicious) start to your day. It’s also full of vitamins, minerals, calcium, and antioxidants that you can feel good about giving to yourself and your kids. Yes, kids. Kids love digging into this fun presentation of what looks like a sundae and finding all the good things in the parfait. It’s tasty, crunchy, sweet, and just plain good. I also like to serve these when I’m making a buffet brunch. The parfaits look beautiful on my table and guests can just pick up a glass and go. I can also prepare them early and have them chilling in my refrigerator. Easy prep, delicious foods, and happy guests. What could be better than that? More of the Backstory after the recipe
