Homemade fruit and yogurt parfait breakfast is very healthy. Look at all those ingredients – they are so good for you! I personally use unsweetened yogurt – the sweetness of the granola and the berries is more then enough. Starbucks uses sweet vanilla yogurt that is full of sugar. Homemade version is so much healthier! If you’d like, you can stir in a bit of honey into your yogurt or use vanilla yogurt for a true Starbucks copycat. However, reducing added sugar is one of the best things you can do for your health.
You can meal-prep the whole batch of these fruit and yogurt parfaits to have ready-to-go healthy breakfasts for the week! To make it ahead, just layer blueberries, strawberries, yogurt and granola in 16 oz wide-mouth mason jars, close with lids and refrigerate for up to 5 days. If you want granola to stay super-crispy, you can put a piece of plastic wrap between the yogurt and granola layer (just don’t forget to remove plastic wrap when ready to eat). Or you can omit the granola when meal prepping and add it right before eating. Personally, I don’t really mind the slightly less crispiness and just put the granola on top of the yogurt, so all I need to do in the morning is open the jar and dig in!
Of course, feel free to substitute the blueberries and strawberries with any other berries or cut-up fruit! You can also substitute the granola with nuts or seeds – be as creative as you’d like!
