Breakfast Parfait – 2 Style (Fruit and Chocolate) made using plain yogurt, some fresh fruits, your favorite nuts.
Who doesn’t love a healthy breakfast and what if it tastes and looks like dessert?
That’s exactly what these Breakfast Parfait – 2 Style (Fruit and Chocolate) tastes like!
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.
Like always, Enjoy & Share – Hugs from Me!
