Today is a breakfast that the boys and I love…
BREAKFAST BERRY PARFAITS.
A take off on the dish my dad used to make me when I was a kid with nectarines, sour cream and sugar.
This is our version with our favorite berries.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 pint blackberries (organic & local if possible)
1 pint blueberries (organic & local if possible)
1 pint strawberries, sliced (organic & local if possible)
1 cup plain greek yogurt (we like FAGE)
1 bunch fresh mint
4 t sugar in the raw
WHAT TO DO:
On the bottom of four glasses, layer in your washed blueberries.
Spoon on some yogurt to cover the berries.
Next layer in your washed strawberries and cover with another layer of yogurt.
Top off with washed blueberries and a dollop more of yogurt.
Sprinkle with sugar in the raw and top with a mint leaf.
