Greek Yogurt Parfait with Berries, Nuts & Honey
Try this recipe for breakfast or a quick mini-meal. Tastes like your having dessert for breakfast! So healthy & Protein Packed, I have never been a huge fan of yogurt until I started eating Greek Yogurt.
Greek yogurt is protein packed (6 oz.,15 grams Protein & 90 Calories) and Fat Free! I use Fage brand or Chobani. You can buy it at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's or your local market.
6 oz. Greek Yogurt (non-fat, plain)
1/2 Cup Berries of your choice and or Raisins (antioxidants, vitamins, minerals & fiber)
1 Tablespoon Chopped Walnuts (rich in fiber, B Vitamins, Magnesium, antioxidants such as Vitamin E & Omega 3 fatty acids)
1 Tablespoon Organic Honey to taste (it's carbohydrates supply us with energy & strength, it can boost your endurance and reduce muscle fatigue.
I use my Martini Glasses when preparing these amazing Parfaits! They are a great idea for your Sunday Brunch or afternoon luncheon! Enjoy!
