It’s been one of those mornings. I didn’t feel like heating up the stove and sizzling bacon and eggs. And I didn’t want to feed the baby toast or a bagel today. I’m trying to break his habit of always having bread. He’s such a bread guy, he loves it just like his dad lol.
Sometimes the body just craves something simple, fresh and clean. Parfaits are not a common thing we make in our home, but I think it’s time to change that. I was studying recipes to make homemade pop tarts with the fresh blueberries I have ( I’m still working on this) initially I was planning to make a batch this morning and Baby and I would eat the test batch for breakfast. But instead, as I was staring into my fridge I saw an unopened container of Greek yogurt, the blueberries and more of my grandpa’s home grown strawberries. Berries are so in season right now! They are incredibly sweet, even the batches I’d been buying from the grocery store are.
I thought to myself that we needed to eat these beautiful fruits fresh this morning! It really hit the spot, and even baby enjoyed it too!
- 1 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt - 2 tbs maple syrup - 1 tbs heavy cream - 3 small strawberry - 1/4 cup of fresh blueberries - 1/4 cup of granola - sprinkle of almonds - sprinkle of brown sugar
In a small bowl combine the Greek yogurt, maple syrup and cream. Stir together until creamy in texture. Top the bowl with fresh fruit, granola, nuts and brown sugar. Enjoy!
