A cute berry-topped parfait is one of my favorite ways to start the day. It has just the right amount of sweetness balanced by creamy yogurt for filling protein and fresh berries for fiber. This simple recipe is just another perfect balance of crunchy, tangy, and fruity, all with a dairy-free yogurt base.
And the best part about this recipe is that it's incredibly fast and easy to put together and customizable. Use your favorite healthy granola, dairy-free yogurt, and even switch out the blueberries for another seasonal fruit. This DIY breakfast is a winner for every palate, including kids! Whether it's a busy morning before school or work or even a leisurely weekend meal, this breakfast feels luxurious but comes together in less than 5 minutes.
This healthy breakfast recipe may just become your new go-to morning meal.
You only need a few simple ingredients to assemble these parfaits for one, two, or 10 hungry bellies:
You can get as fancy as you like when you're building your blueberry-granola parfaits, or keep things simple and straightforward. I like a classic triple layer of dairy-free yogurt mixed with lemon juice and sweetener, topped with granola, and finished with a handful of blueberries. If you like a more intricate layer pattern, alternate with yogurt, granola, and berries to fill your bowl or jar.
You can prepare the lemon-yogurt mixture up to three days ahead of time. Just before enjoying, top your yogurt with granola and berries. I don't recommend storing the yogurt with granola on top, as the granola may turn soggy and lose its crunchy texture.
There are dozens of delicious varieties of vegan yogurt, and really any will do for these parfaits. If you're looking for nut-free yogurt, choose oat or soy-based yogurt. Otherwise, almond, coconut and cashew-based yogurts are all creamy, thick and deliciously tangy. Of course, if you're not vegan, you can also make this recipe with regular plain unsweetened yogurt.
You can use any store-bought granola you like. From nut-free to grain-free to paleo, there are so many tasty granola and cereal options out there.
But if you prefer to know exactly what's in your granola, I recommend making it yourself! These are my favorite granola recipes to top these vegan parfaits:
you can always add more crunch to your homemade parfaits with chopped nuts, nut butter, or even chocolate chips! It's your breakfast, after all!
