Quick & Easy Yogurt Parfait

One of my favorite breakfasts is a Fruit & Yogurt Parfait.  Somehow it seems like more of a treat than just yogurt with a piece of fruit on the side and the flavor combos are endless.

Today I made a fairly basic parfait using Oiko's Organic Plain Greek Yogurt, 1/2 banana, 1/4 Organic Gala Apple and a few Strawberries.

This can really be made in any container.  I invested in a small parfait container from Pier One Import for less than 3 bucks.  It's the perfect size and it does wonders for the presentation.

Layer about half your yogurt in the bottom and top with half of your fruit. 

I like the dice up the fruit pretty small.  That way you get a little bit of everything in every bite.

Then top with the remaining yogurt and fruit and you're done!

Well...almost done.  I like to top mine with 1 TBS ofground flaxseed.  It adds fiber, omegas and adelicious nutty flavor.  I'm totally addicted to flax in my yogurt.  I definitely urge you all to try it! (just make sure you mix it all together before eating it or the flax will feel powdery in your mouth)


  1. Yum! I'll have to try that soon!

  2. Its super good and can really be made with any type and flavor of yogurt and any fruit you have on hand.
