Simple Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

Yogurt parfaits are the perfect grab-n-go breakfast, snack or dessert! Pretty much the easiest, freshest, and most delicious recipe that you can make in less than 5 minutes.

Breakfast is one of those things that has to be quick and easy to make, so that you could literally make it in your sleep. I suppose that’s why most people opt for cereal. But cereal tends to get boring very quickly and most of them really aren’t all that good for you.

How to Make a Yogurt Parfait

This parfait recipe is super simple and very easy to customize. Here’s how I make mine (printable recipe below).

Berries and granola in bowl.
  1. Layer. Start with a glass, or even a jar and then start by packing the ingredients in layers.
  2. Drizzle. I start with a layer of Greek yogurt, then a tiny drizzle of honey.
  3. Add. Then I add the granola, some chia seeds.,
  4. Top. Finally I top it off with some beautiful fresh berries.
  5. Repeat. Then all you have to do is repeat the process. And there you have it, an easy breakfast parfait.

TIP: You can also use this recipe to make a yogurt bowl. Instead of layering in a cup or jar, place the yogurt in a bowl and add your favorite toppings over the yogurt.

Variations + Toppings

  • Granola. You can use any granola, I usually prefer to use homemade granola. Purely Elizabeth and Kind Granola are store bought favorites. You can also use muesli instead of granola if you’d like.
  • Yogurt. The possibilities are endless here. I prefer to use plain Greek yogurt that isn’t loaded with sugar. Some of my favorite brands are Fage, Chobani and Kirkland.
  • Fruit. You can add any of your favorite fruits. The possibilities are endless and it always results in a fresh, healthy and delicious breakfast that you can whip up in 5 minutes. Some of my other favorites to add are bananas, peaches, dried berries. I also love using frozen berries and melting them a little, so they create a fruit syrup on top of the yogurt.
  • Nuts. Chopped nuts also make a great addition to a parfait and add a little bit of sweet and salty. A scoop of peanut butter on top is also delicious!
  • Coconut. Toasted coconut, shredded coconut or coconut flakes also taste amazing on top.
