I mentioned recently how I love the combination of fresh fruit, granola and yogurt for breakfast… so the other day I wanted to share it with my mom and friend. But I wanted to make it look pretty. That’s when I had the idea to layer it into a parfait. It would look far prettier than just mixing everything haphazardly in a bowl.
BREAKFAST GRANOLA PARFAIT
1 cup ricotta 1 cup vanilla yogurt Squirt of honey 2 cups fresh strawberries, quartered 1 tbs brown sugar 2 cups granola
- In a bowl, mix the cut berries and mix in with the brown sugar to macerate. Allow the berries to release some of their own juice about 10 minutes.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, yogurt and honey. Mix together well.
- In parfait glasses, or just some old-fashioned glasses, layer all the components – First add some yogurt/ricotta, then some fruit and end with some granola. Repeat again, yogurt/ricotta, fruit and granola. End up it some additional fruit on top.
Serve immediately. Serves about 3 parfaits.
The flavors are spectacular and the presentation is really nice, especially if you are entertaining for breakfast or brunch when you have special company, don’t you think??
