If you’re looking for a quick and healthy breakfast, try this easy berry parfait. Plain yogurt is sweetened with fresh strawberries and blueberries, fiber-rich granola and a few walnuts for crunch. Berries and walnuts are rich in ellagic acid, a compound that acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Cut a serving in half for a fun afternoon snack.


Ingredients

  • 2 Cups
    blueberries
  • 2 Cups
    sliced strawberries
  • 1 Tablespoon
    honey, softened by placing the jar in a pan of water over low heat
  • 2 Cups
    low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup
    low-fat granola
  • 4 Tablespoons
    chopped walnuts

Instructions

  1. Place berries in mixing bowl. Drizzle with softened honey and toss gently to coat.

  2. Spoon 1/4 cup yogurt into four parfait glasses (tall, narrow wine glasses will do) and top with layer of berry mixture. Repeat layers with remaining yogurt and berry mix. Top with granola and nuts. Serve.
