Strawberry Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits

strawberry parfaitSummer is finally here!

This is the last week of school and I am looking forward to some lazy summer mornings. Summertime means pool time, trips for ice cream, staying up late and of course, plenty of fresh fruit such as strawberries!

We missed the boat on strawberry picking this year but there are plenty of juicy ripe berries in the grocery stores and at the farmers markets. They have been invading my refrigerator and I love it. While I love making drinks, tarts and muffins with them, this time I went with something really healthy. These strawberry parfaits are perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. I used plain non fat Greek yogurt to cut out some sugar and calories. A sprinkling of granola and a drizzle of honey gives it a nice amount of sweetness and crunch. I could wake up to this breakfast every morning.

Feel free to change up the fruit. I know I will be trying blueberries, raspberries and peaches. What is your favorite summer breakfast?

Thank you for the reminder of this simple and delicious change of pace for breakfast. I work. So my routine gets to be robot like. But this is a quick, so doesn’t jerk my schedule around—–like I have to get up earlier—lol. But I forget about it. I have all the ingredients on hand including strawberries all the time.

And this is perfect for those mornings when it’s 100 degrees & humid, and I know you get that humidity there in NJ, and you just want easy peasy food.
