Besides pouring some cereal into a bowl and drowning it in milk, how much easier can breakfast get? After a few weeks of eating too many bagels on-the-go, a change in routine was a necessity. One of the brunch items at the Food Blog Forum conference was a mason jar parfait filled with yogurt, fruit, and granola. With a package of Bear Naked granola tucked in the conference swag bag (fruit and nut mix), there was no good reason to skip making this at home!
I picked up Choboni greek yogurt, tossed in some blackberries and sliced strawberries, and topped it off with the fruit and nut granola. I made several small containers for the week so I could save time each morning. I’m not a ball of sunshine and energy at 6am – the less I have to do before a few cups of coffee, the better! Since the fruit is layered between the yogurt and granola, the granola never got soggy. The serving size container kept everything fresh.
- 1 cup plain greek yogurt
- ¼ cup granola
- Whatever berries or other fruit you would like
- Yogurt goes on the bottom
- Layer the fruit on top of the yogurt (this prevents the granola from becoming soggy)
- Top it off with the granola
