Oatmeal Yogurt Breakfast Parfait with Strawberries- My Power Breakfast!
This is a very busy week for me. My Dad's Memorial Service is this Saturday, and I have company coming Thursday. I 'm still planting flowers, and I have to do the usual cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. I need a power breakfast for sure. I took my cooked rolled oats that I usually eat every day, and dressed them up. I layered the cooked cinnamon oatmeal with Strawberry Greek yogurt, added more strawberries, topped with walnuts for crunch, and another strawberry. Not only does this parfait taste great, it is packed with nutrition, with the added protein from the Greek yogurt. You can use your favorite flavor of yogurt and fruits. Change up the nuts as well. You will have so much energy, and it's so healthy besides. Let me know what other flavor combo's you concoct. This would be fun to let the kids make this fun breakfast treat. They will think that they are eating dessert for breakfast Enjoy.
