I have been obsessed with homemade parfait lately, especially after I got a mason jar for Christmas. I love how you can easily prepare this the night before and have it for breakfast the next morning before starting the day and conquering the endless to-dos. Recently I got some tart trays (I think that's what they are called), so I thought maybe I could try to do my parfait in one of these instead.
What you'll need:
- fresh fruits
- yoghurt (low fat/greek)
- maple syrup
- vanilla essence
- cinnamon sugar (optional)
For the base, I used two scoops of yoghurt and a few drops of vanilla essence (mmhm!) before topping it with my favourite fruits - I like raspberries, bananas and blueberries. Preparation usually takes less than 15 minutes. Once you're done, just refrigerate it overnight and enjoy it the next day. If you were to prepare yours in mason jars, they are perfect grab-and-go. You can now have delicious and healthy breakfast at your office desk!
Tip #1: If your yoghurt is not flavoured, you can always add a few drops of vanilla essence or maple syrup/honey.
Tip #2: If you intend to make a weeks worth at a go, do not add the fruits in yet. Try to serve them fresh if possible.
I hope you guys will give this recipe a try! Trust me, it tastes as good as it looks!
