Congratulations! Another week of hard work achieved. To celebrate, treat your taste buds to something yummy and healthy this weekend. Here’s a quick recipe for a blueberry & blackberry yogurt parfait that doubles as breakfast and a desert.
What you’ll need:
-1/2 cup of frozen blackberries
-1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
-1/2 cup of low-fat milk
-honey as desired
– 2 cups of low-fat Greek yogurt. If you prefer something sweeter, mix in low-fat vanilla yogurt or add honey
– nuts of choice (I prefer almonds)
-small glass serving cups or bowls
Blend the first four ingredients together until mixture has reached the texture of a smoothie. This will be used as a type of cold sauce in the yogurt. If you’d like to add a crunchier bite to the yogurt, layer the bottom of your serving cup or bowl with the nut of your choice. Fill about 3/4 of the cup with yogurt, adding the sauce on top or in between to make the design of your choice. Put a generous layer of the remaining blueberry/blackberry mixture on the of the cup. Good toppings for this recipe include nuts, whole berries or even flaxseed.
Et voila, easy peasy!
Enjoy and Happy Friday!
Love, the L’Aristo team
