Stress-Busting Yogurt, Granola & Berry Parfaits


Stress-Busting Yogurt, Granola & Berry Parfaits

Layers of sweet fruit, creamy yogurt, and crunchy granola make these parfaits healthy enough to serve as breakfast, snack, or lunch but decadent enough to eat for dessert! 

Stress-Busting Berry Parfaits
We indulge in these parfaits a lot in my house! We all love that they are delicious… I get the added bonus of knowing that they’re LOADED with stress-busting superfoods! 

These are also SUPER easy to make. Try the Variations or ‘DIY Parfait Station’ ideas below to make it extra fun for your kiddos (or cater to their picky side!). 

Over the past couple of years, my kids have lost their taste for having flaxseeds just sprinkled onto yogurt or oatmeal. Making these parfaits with the seeds ‘camouflaged’ inside crunchy honey granola clusters has turned out to be the perfect solution for us. Try it and let me know how it works for you! 


BONUS: This recipe uses FIVE of the 10 Superfoods listed in my ebook ‘Eat to Beat Stress’ 

 



VARIATIONS|

Spiced Pumpkin Parfait 
Replace fruit with Spiced Pumpkin Puree: 
In a small mixing bowl, combine 2 c. pumpkin puree,
1/2 tsp. cinnamon, and 4 tsp. honey*. 
Mix thoroughly, then use in place of the fruit in Step 2 of recipe.

Pina Colada Parfait 
In a small mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 c. crushed pineapple with juice and 1/2 c. shredded coconut. 
Mix thoroughly, then use in place of the fruit in Step 2 of recipe.


TIP 
Set up a DIY parfait station, and older kids can make their own!

-fun for parties, special family breakfast, or dessert night!-

SET UP: Make a large bowl of Honey Vanilla Yogurt. Set out yogurt, a bowl of granola and separate bowls of various mashed/diced fruits + individual serving bowls so they can load them up with their own unique parfait creation!

MAKE AHEAD TIP:
 
Layer fruit and yogurt only, cover, and refrigerate up to 2 days.  Add granola to top when ready to serve.


erving Suggestions for Littles

10-11 months Replace blueberries with mashed banana, peaches, nectarine, kiwi, mango, pineapple, or pears. *Use granola made without honey - substitute pure maple syrup or apple juice concentrate. 

.**Use plain whole milk yogurt for baby's serving - do not add honey.

Test for wheat or oat allergy prior to serving granola.

Crumble granola into very small pieces and mash or finely dice fruit to avoid choking.

12-24 months Blueberries can be used, or replace with diced or mashed cherries or suggestions as noted for 10-11 months.**Use whole milk yogurt for baby's serving.
