Make Ahead Parfaits
This week I will be showing you how to make a cheap and easy parfait that you can grab on the go. Make them on Sunday night, and you’ll have breakfast for a whole week!
For this recipe, I used our handy kitchen scale.
4 3/4 oz non fat Greek Yogurt
2 1/2 oz frozen mixed berries
30 gm of low fat granola
Place the plastic glass on the kitchen scale, and push “tear” the button to subtract the weight. Add 4 3/4 oz of yogurt to the glass.
Push the “tear” button again, and add 2 1/2 oz of frozen mixed berries.
Place a small square of saran wrap over the frozen berries. This will help keep the granola from getting soggy.
Push the “tear” button again, and add 30 gm of granola. Add half the granola if you wish, to lower your carbohydrate and fat intake. The type of granola I used for this recipe had dark chocolate and hazelnuts in it, which probably increased the fat content.
Now wrap the plastic around the granola and twist to secure.
Cover with another layer of saran wrap.
Gather and pull the loose ends together and twist.
Now tuck the loose end back underneath itself to secure the plastic. You are now ready to put your parfait in the fridge for a quick grab and go breakfast the next morning!
I hope you enjoy these quick and easy make-ahead parfaits. The cost is $2.15 per serving. 367 cal, 47g carbs, 5.6 g protein, 16.5g fat.
