Build an Everything Yogurt Parfait for a quick and easy breakfast or snack while you are on-the-go. Use up anything in the pantry for this tasty treat.
There are so many ways to make a parfait, but my favorite is to throw a little bit of everything in there. That’s why I call this an Everything Yogurt Parfait.
The beauty of making parfaits at home is making it exactly how you want. Or, in my case, using up what we have. I like to throw whatever I find in this one.
Sometimes I use fresh fruit, others I use frozen. If it’s frozen fruit, I fix them up but save them for the next day so the fruit has time to thaw. A parfait is a great way to use up any fruit that is getting soft, too. I don’t like to have waste in our kitchen, so we find ways to use as much as possible before throwing it in the compost bin as a last resort.
We keep chia seeds and flax seed in the pantry for Tyler’s oatmeal. I throw a bit of that into the parfait. It helps keep me full throughout the day when I eat it for breakfast.
Step by Step
Prepare your parfait jars by cleaning out old glass jars or mason jars and find the matching lids. If you’re like me and save all of your glass jars, it can take a few minutes to find lids. It’s better to do it before you have the parfaits in the jar in case you can’t find the correct lid.
Spoon the yogurt into each jar until they are about 1/3 full. Put a few pieces of the berries into each jar with half of the flax and chia seeds and coconut flakes.
Add a few more scoops of yogurt to the jars. Top with more of your “everything” fillings.
Either eat immediately or seal and place in the refrigerator. The Everything Yogurt Parfait can be refrigerated for up to 3-4 days.
