I’ve been a little bit obsessed with mason jars lately, and they are PERFECT for yogurt parfaits. You can make these ahead of time for a super easy grab-and-go breakfast or snack.
It is currently summer and one of my favorite things about summer is the fresh berries. Because fresh berries make everything better. Just look at this picture…drooling…
And then there’s the granola…yogurt and granola were a match made in taste bud heaven.
You can use your favorite store bought granola for this recipe or make your own with my Honey Crunch Granola. Store bought granola is perfectly fine especially if you don’t have access to an oven. But, making your own allows you to avoid all the added sugar in a lot of store bought versions. It is also much easier to make than you think it is I promise. And if you didn’t think granola could get much better, just wait until you’ve tried a bite of your fresh homemade granola right out of the oven. Warm, soft but crunchy at the same time, just the right amount of sweet, and makes your whole kitchen smell like cinnamon and happiness.
If you cant tell yet I am currently very hungry. Once it hits about 9pm my brain just starts dreaming about breakfast. There is no controlling it and no stopping it. The only solution is to make myself a delicious breakfast and put it in the fridge so I can devour it as soon as possible when I wake up in the morning. I lost my train of thought because my brain is now completely in food only mode…so here is another picture and the recipe and Im gunna go make this for myself right now 🙂
|Prep Time||5 minutes|
- 1 cup Raspberries
- 1 cup Blueberries
- 16 ounces Vanilla greek yogurt
- 1 cup Granola
- 4 Mason Jars 8-ounce jars
- Rinse berries and pat blueberries dry with a paper towel.
- Spoon a couple spoonfuls of yogurt into each mason jar. The jars should be about 1/4 full.
- Add a layer of raspberries to each jar and then top with another layer of yogurt.
- Cover the top layer of yogurt with blueberries and fill the rest of the jar with granola. Ensuring that the blueberries are dry and covering most of the yogurt will help keep the granola from getting soggy.
- Screw on the lids and keep these parfaits in the refrigerator for a grab-and-go breakfast or snack! They will last up to 2 days with the granola or can be stored up to 5 days without granola (just add the granola before eating)
