Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

I’ve been trying to find new and more exciting things to eat for my weekday breakfasts.  Nothing too involved, since I don’t have THAT much time in the morning.  But cereal and English muffins, though tasty, get old.  And I am always STARVING an hour later.  I started making this fruit and yogurt parfait to go with my English muffins.  The fruit and dairy add some nutritional value to the meal that keeps me full… at least until 10 am snack time.  Normally, the parfait on its own would suffice, but now that I have a baby boy growing inside me, I need to eat a little more in the mornings, so I’ll usually pair it with some toast or an English muffin.

There’s plenty of granola options out there (some are even chocolately!), and you can use whatever flavors of yogurt and any type of fruit you want!  My favorite for breakfast is vanilla yogurt with mixed berries.  When I’m trying to be good, fruit and yogurt parfaits are perfect for dessert.  Dannon makes a Chocolate Raspberry Light ‘n Fit Greek yogurt that I LOVE – using that in my parfait, plus some chocolatey granola or even a crushed up chocolate graham cracker is SO good, you’ll almost forget that you aren’t eating that giant slice of cake… (almost).
