Yogurt Parfaits at Home:

Every time I think about eating healthier, I start by eliminating those breakfast sweets. Breakfast is one of the easiest meals to swap out for healthier alternatives.

This yogurt, oat, and berry parfait looks more like a dessert than a breakfast– but when you think about it, it’s full of healthy fiber and antioxidants.

So, you can start your day off on something more nutritious than that donut or muffin you will pick up on the way to work! This recipe is a win already!

What to Add:

This recipe starts with Vanilla or Plain Yoplait Greek 100. You can also opt for one of the zero calorie yogurts like Yoplait’s Formé Zero Sugar Zero Fat yogurt.

Just mix a generous hand full of oats (about 1/4 cup), blueberries, and fresh strawberries (diced) with your Vanilla or Plain Yoplait Greek 100. Alternate a spoon of yogurt with the layers of oats and berries.

You’re good to go! This recipe comes together in as much time as a bowl of cereal. Perfect for busy mornings before work or school.

I like to stack parfaits in some cute ice cream dishes like these mini trifle bowls, but they aren’t necessary of course. You can get them on Amazon but ice cream dishes are abundant if you have a thrift store nearby. They will cost pennies compared to new ones. 🙂

Other Yogurt Parfait Add-In Ideas:

Here are a few more delicious combinations for your yogurt parfait:

  • Raspberry and Chia: Mix 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds + Handful of Raspberries, alternate with Plain Yogurt
  • Peanut Butter Banana: Bananas (1/2 banana sliced into thin slices) and Peanut Butter. Alternate with Vanilla Yogurt.
  • Peach Cobbler: Toss sliced peaches with a dash of cinnamon. Add handful of chopped pecans. Alternately add to Greek 100 Peach yogurt.
  • Chocolate covered Strawberry: Add 1/4 Cup Special K Chocolately Delight Cereal + Handful of chopped Strawberries, alternately to Greek 100 Vanilla Yogurt. Optionally, drizzle with a sugar free Chocolate Syrup!
  • Caramel Apple: Add Chopped Green Apples + a Drizzle of Caramel Syrup and oats to Greek 100 Vanilla Yogurt.
  • Maple Almond: Add 1 Tbsp. Maple Syrup + a handful of Almonds alternately with a crushed up granola bar or granola cereal, to Greek 100 Vanilla Yogurt!

Even More Yogurt Parfait Hacks:

1 Tsp Honey — this can sweeten it up if you’re used to more sugars

Add Crumbled up Low Sugar Granola Cereal + any fruit

Use 1/4 cup plain Cheerios instead of oats

Or Use 1/4 cup plain Rice Krispies

Why I Love Greek Yogurt vs Regular Yogurt:

Yogurt is one of our family’s favorite treats and it’s something we always have on hand.

Using Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt in place of sour cream in recipes has saved me lots of calories over the years! ha! And when my sweet tooth is acting up I make a delicious, colorful Greek yogurt parfait instead of a bowl of ice cream or a slice of cake.

Pumpkin Yogurt:

Pumpkin Yogurt

I love Pumpkin and always have some in the pantry, so I whipped up a delicious Pumpkin Yogurt.  It’s creamy and delicious and a perfect, healthy treat.  Simply mix together 1 c. plain Greek Yogurt, 1/3 c. pumpkin puree with 1 tablespoon of honey and a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.  This is an amazing fall breakfast treat, but honestly– it’s good any time of year!

And the best part is that I don’t have to feel guilty about indulging on this amazing little treat!  I also love the fact that I know exactly what is in my Pumpkin Yogurt because I’m the one that put it in there!
