Theme : Brighten your Breakfast
I grew up eating traditional South Indian breakfast food everyday like dosa, idly and kozhukkatai. When I moved out, I slipped into this habit of not eating breakfast at all. Now after so many years, I try best to eat breakfast but I am not able to eat heavy rice based breakfast like in my childhood.
Everyday breakfast is now very simple and uncomplicated. For most part, it’s a couple of fruits or a flavored yogurt or eggs in some form. But for today’s post, I decided combine my fruit and yogurt habit and have a parfait for breakfast. I also felt fancy and decided to add more topping and fruit choices too. Usually we buy flavored yogurt and use that as a base, but regular yogurt works too. You may not see all the layers if you use regular yogurt, so it’s a good idea to let it drain using a filter coffee pot or use hung curd. I didn’t bother with that though.
Parfait bar is also a good and healthy way to feed a crowd of kids, you can leave everything on the table and they can choose whatever they want and serve themselves. Also the fruit choices and topping choices are endless. For kids, I would definitely add more flavored yogurt and more fruits and maybe some chocolate chips or even crushed Oreos.
Read on for the “recipe”.
- Yogurt – flavored or plain
- Fruits of your choice
- Chia seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Sunflower seeds
Keep clear glasses for serving.
Add a layer of yogurt, top with fruits of your choice. Add another layer of yogurt and keep repeating until the glass is full. Top with crunchy granola or with other seeds or cereal and add some honey on top to make it even more yummy! That’s a happy start to the day 😊
