Breakfast in the morning can be more of a chore than an enjoyable meal when I’m trying to make it to work on time. Making sure I’m getting enough high quality foods while still getting a lot of protein can be just too much thinking in the morning. So instead of having to create an impressive full breakfast, I start layering three things I love: Greek Yogurt, Fresh Fruit and Granola. With this easy combination, I’m getting my vitamins from the fruit, protein from the yogurt, and carbs from the granola. It fills me up with all the goodness I need in the morning without taking too much time to prep. Here are ten delicious parfaits you can make at home this week to make your morning routine healthier and easier.

1. Cherry Yogurt Parfaits with Crunchy Granola

Cherries are currently in season here in Canada and I am a huge fan of them! Include them into your daily morning meal with some of your favorite granola.

2. Peanut Butter Cup Yogurt

Needing a major kick of protein combined with a little chocolate fix? This morning parfait will satisfy your sweet tooth while filling you up with all the good stuff.

3. Granola Parfaits with Peaches and Blueberries

Stop at the farmers market and pick up some fresh peaches and blueberries to make this bright and beautiful parfait.

4. Oatmeal Cups with Yogurt and Fruit

Eliminate the dishes and fill up granola cups with yogurt and fruit!
