Organic Greek Yogurt Berry Parfaits

DSC_0540

When my daughter was home from college for winter break, she made fruit parfaits with berries and low-fat vanilla yogurt for an early morning road trip she was taking with her boyfriend. They looked delicious! I thought they could be made in advance for healthy work week breakfasts. I have been looking for different ways to add variety to my morning meals. By using Greek nonfat plain yogurt and adding the honey and vanilla myself, I was able to increase the amount of protein and by 14 grams and reduce the amount of carbohydrate and sugar by 5 grams. I topped my parfaits with omega-3 walnuts for crunch and more protein. The berry parfaits were yummy, if I do say so myself!

  1. Yummy! Just about every breakfast I have nuts on greek yogurt with berries! Sometimes I incorporate cocoa nibs or seeds, too. I love your goal for this blog, and I totally followed! I’m wheat, rice, and oat free, so my blog is all about the whole foods! I hope you follow me back:)
