Make Ahead Healthy Pina Colada Breakfast Parfait: refreshing breakfast parfait recipe that’s filled with exciting flavors of pineapple and coconut with a crunch in every bite.
Good Morning and A Happy Sunday! You might be surprised by this Sunday post but I couldn’t resist as we are excited and celebrating National Pina Colada Day (July 10th) – YaaaaaY!!!
It’s one of my fav cocktail recipes and I’m always trying to incorporate the flavor into many other recipes too.
So, I absolutely had to share the Make Ahead Healthy Pina Colada Breakfast Parfait recipe along with few of my friends at #SundaySupper.
A BIG Thanks goes out to Cosmopolitan Cornbread for hosting this event.
For anyone who hasn’t had a Piña Colada till now, it’s a drink made with pineapple, coconut w/ rum, and some ice – OMG, you have to taste it as the pairing of ‘pineapple-coconut’ is like made in heaven.
So, definitely, we cannot be having Piña Colada’s right in the morning unless we are somewhere on the gorgeous beaches of Puerto Rico (It’s their national drink) …wink..
Hence, these Pina Colada Breakfast Parfait.
They make an excellent and easy breakfast and are loaded up with taste. I call them ‘make ahead‘, as I usually prepare them a night before and just cling wrap each glass and store in the fridge for easy access.
If you’re vegan, you may use a non-dairy yogurt and for my glutenfree friends, you can use a ‘glutenfree granola’.
I hope you get to try this easy peasy Pina Colada Breakfast Parfait soon and definitely share with loved ones and do let me know 🙂
As always, I Looove when you try my recipes and send me pictures & feedback.
