It is said we eat first with our eyes – well if this is the case then this nutritious pretty breakfast satisfies from the get go. Think layers of colour and flavour with nourishing whole grains and nutty protein. My kids sometimes complain about muesli and yogurt for breakfast, but just love it when I serve this healthy breakfast parfait. Go figure – more or less the same thing just presented a little differently! They also love this as a healthy after school snack, waiting in the cup holder in the car.
The following quantities will vary depending upon the size of the glasses you intend to fill (and the appetites you’re satisfying)! You really don’t need to measure, just spoon in…
1 cup homemade toasted muesli
1 cup natural, kefir, cows, sheep or goats yoghurt
1 cup mixed berries (frozen is fine) or stewed fruit like rhubarb and apple
¼ cup toasted almonds, flakes or slivers
Layer each ingredient into four tumbler glasses or glass jars, starting with a few spoonfuls of yoghurt, and alternating layers of muesli and fruit and finishing with the yogurt. Top with toasted almonds, berries or passionfruit and a sprig of mint. Serve immediately.
Replace the yoghurt with coconut cream or cashew nut cream.
Use mixed berries and muesli sweetened with brown rice syrup.
Use a gluten free muesli mix.
I don’t defrost the berries – I just throw them in which gives an icy consistency that my kids love. They often play ‘whip it up’ where they stir it like crazy to make their own version of ice-cream.
