My Patriotic Breakfast Parfait

I wanted to have something different for breakfast this morning, so I grabbed some Fage Greek Yogurt and fresh fruit from my fridge before heading to work. I have never had Fage 0% before, but had heard so much about it that I figured I should give it a try. I must admit that I didn’t expect it to be so smooth and creamy. I usually go for the flavored Greek yogurts with 100 calories or less, but I am trying to stay away from sugar substitutes, so I thought I would revamp my breakfast routine. My usual breakfast at work is either oatmeal, or Yoplait Lemon Greek yogurt with a Fiber One Lemon Bar crumbled inside of it. I try to incorporate as much protein and fiber in my diet as I can on most days. I believe that this breakfast is definitely a winner! The only bowl I had at my desk was a blue Dixie bowl, and I think that made the whole Patriotic theme tie together nicely. Now did I set out for this to happen? No, but I can’t say that it didn’t bring a smile to my face as I ate it. 🙂

So, what’s in my Patriotic Parfait?

6 oz container Fage Total 0% Greek Yogurt
½ cup of fresh sliced strawberries
¼ cup of fresh blackberries
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon raw almond slivers

Directions: Place half of the yogurt in bottom of dish, top with half of the berries, then drizzle a little honey on top. Repeat steps and finish off with the almond slivers and chocolate chips. Now, if you don’t want to be as fancy as me with my Dixie bowl, I’m sure a nice parfait glass would look just as pretty. 😉 wink
