HEALTHY BREAKFAST IN A JAR

i personally believe that breakfast is the best meal of the day and these pretty parfaits we made in the office are the perfect breakfast treat or afternoon pick me up. we created one fruit smoothie base and set out several fruit and granola options to mix on top. and it was a hit. we also froze a few and they were great the next day.

breakfast parfaits
yields 3-4 servings

what we used: 

• 2% plain greek yogurt
• 1 cup water
•  8 ounces frozen raspberries + blueberries
• bananas
• honey
• raw buckwheat grouts (soaked over night and rinsed)
• vanilla granola
• chopped almonds
• figs
• grapes

how to make it:

• combined the water, three cups greek yogurt, 8 ounces of frozen raspberries, 1/4 honey and 2 bananas in a blender. blend on high until smooth with no chunks. pour equally into three or four separate containers (we used glass jars)

• place all of the remaining ingredients in bowls and allow people to mix as they please in their jars! we liked combining the frozen blueberries first into the smoothie base so that they melted and added an extra sweetness. the figs were also a big hit. if you’ve never used buckwheat grouts, make sure to buy them raw and soak them over night. they’re good for you and they have a nice texture, so give them a go!

    They look great! It doesn’t say how much yogurt to add. Is that an over site or should we just wing it?
