Do you love a good breakfast parfait? Want to go with a healthier option? Well this recipe for Almond Milk Yogurt Parfaits could be what you’re looking for.
While unsweetened yogurt isn’t for everyone, I used Kite Hill Unsweetened Almond Milk Yogurt which I picked up at Whole Foods. (I’ve also found it at both Publix and Target.) It’s a completely plant based yogurt which makes it a perfect choice for a dairy alternative if you prefer not to do anything with soy.
Long before I ever thought up this easy little recipe for a breakfast parfait I had picked up the cutest little glass jars (that are actual for spices) from Crate & Barrel. At the time I didn’t know how I intended to use them, but I love cute things in all shapes and sizes and I knew I would eventually have a use for them.
What makes them perfect is you can fit just enough for an easy breakfast (or afternoon snack if you prefer) and you only have to use one small 5.3oz container of yogurt to make two servings of this delicious parfait.
(Note: The yogurt is unsweetened, if you need a extra dash of sweetness, just add a little honey between your layers and top it with a little drizzle for a final delicious touch.)
As for the granola, I went with the honey oat granola from Whole Foods. It is seriously habit forming, and by the time I’d gotten home from the store I was already wishing that I had filled a larger container than the small one I’d purchased. (What I love about it is… it’s not overly sweet and it has the perfect amount of crunchiness without making you worry about your teeth.)
For the fruit topping you can go with pretty much anything you have on hand, I had a container of blueberries in my fridge and a can of mandarin oranges in the pantry, so I decided to go with both.
Almond Yogurt & Granola Parfaits
2 1/2 cup servings
- 1 5.3oz container of unsweetened almond milk yogurt
- Honey Oat Granola
- 1 container blueberries
- 1 small can of mandarin oranges
- In freshly washed container cover the bottom with a layer of granola.
- For a less messy look, I first whisked my almond milk yogurt, and spooned it into a piping bag. (You can just spoon it in if you prefer.)
- After your layer of yogurt add another thicker layer of granola followed by another dollop of almond milk yogurt.
- Top with blueberries, mandarin oranges and give it a drizzle of honey if you want a little extra sweetness.
