Cherries and Yogurt Parfait – Shake up your breakfast routine with these Cherry Breakfast Parfaits. Make them ahead for a delicious breakfast on the go.
…First and foremost I want to tell you all that I truly appreciate your wonderful, kind, and caring words; yesterday’s post was very hard to write, but I had to do it for my Baba.
Sometimes all we need is for someone to tell us that everything is going to be okay, and I thank you all for that.
I went to the pool last weekend with my husband and my daughter. Had a great time watching the little one enjoy herself while swimming around with daddy…it was very sweet.
But I could not help noticing one other thing – MILFs were everywhere!! Did people start working out before June?!?
THANK goodness I “forgot” my bathing suit at home.
So last week while everyone was gobbling up ice cream and frozen cheesecakes, (it was near 100 degrees for 3 days), I was hanging out with granola, fruit, and cold yogurt parfaits.
Shake up your breakfast routine with these Cherry Breakfast Parfaits. Make them ahead for a delicious breakfast on the go.
- 2 cups non-fat plain yogurt
- 3 tablespoons honey or agave syrup
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups pitted cherries
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
In a large bowl combine the yogurt, honey, and vanilla; mix well and put it in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Mix together the oats, cocoa, and sugar, and pour in a skillet.
Toast the oats over medium heat for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cool completely and set aside.
Put the pitted cherries in the skillet and cook for about 10 minutes, or until soft. Cool completely.
Assemble the parfaits by pouring a 1/2 cup of yogurt in each glass.
Spoon over some of the oats, top with half of the cherries, then pour the rest of the yogurt on top, and finish off with more oats and cherries.
Put the parfaits in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
- I partially froze mine and pretended that I was eating ice cream with the rest. In fact, I urge you to freeze it because it is that much better when frozen. Trust me – I’ve had 4 of these in a week.
