Make Ahead Fruit & Yogurt Parfaits

Jump to Recipe

Let’s talk breakfast this morning. First off, I would love to hear from you. What are your go-to breakfasts? Things that you make over and over and never seem to tire of. I always like growing my own personal collection of easy and healthy breakfasts because I find it sets the tone for my eating the whole day. Start the day off with something good means I am more likely to stay on track all day. Start the day off with something not so good equals a day of bad choices. This is a habit I am trying to break (but it’s so hard for some reason), but for now I am trying to stick to good morning decisions. One of those lately has been this simple overnight fruit and yogurt parfait. It’s kind of like overnight oats but with more yogurt and less oats. Then it just has some of your favorite fruit and some chia and flax seeds for fiber. You can make a few at a time and store them in the fridge all week. This also works great with flavored yogurt if you like something sweeter.

First time using chia and flax seeds and I loved the results! I used vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt, and I think it would have been too bland without the flavoring. Definitely filling!
