Quick and Easy Weekday Breakfast

    Once school is in session, mornings can be a little hectic. The last thing I want to concern myself with is what to make for breakfast. Yogurt Parfaits have proven to be a quick and efficient way to get us out the door on time.
    In order to save time in the morning, I prepare our Triple Berry Yogurt Parfaits in Mason Jars (covered with a lid) and store them in the refrigerator over night. This way, when we wake in the morning, they're ready to go. Just be careful to layer the granola over the yogurt, to prevent it from becoming soggy.

Triple Berry Yogurt Parfaits:


1 cup crunchy granola (I use Kashi GO LEAN)
1 cup low fat yogurt
1 cup fresh berries, mixed (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)


(1) In two separate dishes of your choice (I use a 500ml Mason Jar), layer the ingredients a 1/2 cup at a time. First, the yogurt, second the granola, third the berries.

*This recipe yields two servings.
