Are you in a breakfast rut?
It's all too easy to get into a breakfast rut isn't it?
And it's so hard on a school day to find the time to make anything very exciting.
I do make porridge most days, because Little S loves it, but I often fancy something a little lighter.
Breakfast parfait is the perfect make-ahead breakfast
How pretty does this breakfast parfait look?
It's such a treat to have something like this for breakfast. And even better it can be made the night before - cutting down the work in the morning.
If you decide to make your parfait the night before just leave off the granola. Add this just before serving to avoid it going soggy.
What is a parfait?
While a traditional parfait is semi-frozen dessert made from eggs, cream and sugar, a parfait can also be a layered yoghurt-based dish.
It can be served as a dessert as I've done with this strawberry yoghurt parfait or for breakfast.
The yoghurt is served in layers with fruit and granola and is an extremely versatile breakfast that goes well with any kind of fruit.
