Who doesn’t love a healthy breakfast and what if it tastes and looks like dessert? OMG – Right !!! So here’s a ‘Breakfast Parfait – 2 Style (Fruit and Chocolate)‘ that’s made using plain yogurt (If vegan, you may use vegan yogurt), some fresh fruits, your favorite nuts and then it’s upto you to add any more toppings.
Parfaits are frozen french desserts made using lots of sugar, eggs, cream and tastes ooooommmm–nomnom – yum! You might have also heard of American Parfaits which are usually served for breakfast (made using yogurt and granola) in bakery and restaurants. I had a chance to try both these parfaits and finally decided to make the American version at home (Don’t worry, you’ll get to see the french version too someday).
I actually made two different variations here one for chocolate lovers and one for fruit lovers. If this is your first time eating or making a parfait, try the fruit version first as it’s more simple in taste and easy to make. For the chocolate one, I went kind of overboard with two types of chocolate (dark & milk), lots of nuts 😉 and some added cream too.
You can make them overnight and store in fridge, they actually tastes quite good the next day or carry them to work for a quick dessert lunch or a healthy lunch….the possibilities are endless. I’m adding this to my friend’s ‘Meat free Mondays‘ roundup.
