Perfectly Refreshing And Healthy Parfait To Sip For Morning Breakfast
For days when you’re craving pie for breakfast but don’t actually want to start your day a la mode, turn to this healthy apple pie parfait. Made with apples sautéed in coconut oil, cinnamon, and maple syrup, this recipe captures the best of fall without overdoing it on sugar. Once the apples are cooked, the rest is easy: Mix oats with chia seeds and almond milk, let sit for 10 minutes, then layer the chia-oats pudding and apples.
With a crunchy and decadent filling, this parfait checks all of our breakfast boxes. It only takes five minutes to make. Start by spooning Greek yogurt into small glasses or jars, top with banana slices and a spoonful of almond butter, dust cacao nibs and cocoa powder on the top, and then add the second layer. Easy as can be, and you get two portions out of it. Heck, you could even prep a week’s worth of breakfast in less than 15 minutes!
A great way to get extra fruit flavor in your breakfast parfaits is to mix and match flavored yogurts. This recipe uses strawberry- and banana-flavored yogurts for a delicious and unexpected flavor twist and keeps the rest simple with chia seeds, store-bought granola, and strawberry slices. Look for yogurts that use real fruit to add flavor and that don’t use added sugar or use plain yogurt instead.
