Last week I ran out of milk and did not have enough cereal. Quickly I whipped Easy Parfaits as a last minute resort solution for breakfast. I ended up with a super way to up my breakfast game! Easy Cereal Fruit Parfaits to the rescue! The Parfaits are beautiful to look and delicious to eat 🙂 I confess I had never mixed anything with my yogurt. You better believe I am now experimenting left and right! Breakfast or snack I am indulging in the Easy Cereal Fruit Parfaits frequently with my family!
Easy Cereal Yogurt Parfaits
I love that these Easy Cereal Parfaits can be done ahead of time if you have a time crunch in the mornings. I can serve these in a jiffy. Making them is also very quick. Did I mention super easy too? The best part of all is that it combines my kids’ faves. So, I told you I had ran out of milk. Additionally, I did not have enough cereal either. To compensate, I threw in some tangerines and oranges to the mix. The result? A delicious healthy breakfast or snack that is tasty and just perfect. Easy Cereal Parfaits for the win!
- 1/2 cup of plain or vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup of your favorite cereal
- 1 small tangerine ( you can use your favorite fruit)
Cool mom tip: The kids do enjoy helping out in the kitchen making these!
- Layer yogurt at the bottom of your glass
- Add a layer of fruit
- Top with the cereal
- Repeat as many times as you like or until you reach the top of your glass.
You can layer it all in a variety of ways. My son went for yogurt and cereal only 🙂
Cool mom tip: if you need a breakfast on-the-go, layer yogurt, and fruit in a container with a lid. In the morning before you head out, add the cereal for that extra crunch!
An extra tip: love to garnish your recipes? Almonds top the Easy Cereal Parfaits perfectly!
These Easy Cereal Parfaits do put me in a good mood and are an important part of my family’s breakfast. That said, you can also have them as an after-school snack. They do carry a huge reward value factor if you feel like bringing these out for a little celebration!
