Quick Breakfast

One of our favorite breakfast meals is a fruit and yogurt mix with crunchy topping. McDonald's makes an excellent Fruit and Yogurt Parfait complete with strawberries and blueberries and crunchy granola. And only $1, not bad! Several months ago I created one similar to it and served it to my family for breakfast. It was a big hit. Noah loves it, Clay loves it, and I love it- plus it's healthy too! Now it's one of our regular morning additions.
Fruit and Yogurt Mix with Bagels and Cream-cheese
Vanilla yogurt (I buy a large tub of it and it feeds around 3 people twice during the week)
Seasonal fruit (I use strawberries or blueberries in the spring/summer and apples in the fall/winter)
Granola or Cereal (I use Honey Bunches of Oats with Vanilla Clusters cereal. You can find a recipe for homemade granola here.)
1. Place several scoops of yogurt in small bowl. (I sometimes use a glass bowl because it shows the layers better.)
2. Cut up seasonal fruit and add to bowl. (You can do this in layers or all at once. It depends on how pretty you want it to look!)
3. Top with granola or cereal.
4. Serve by itself or with bagels topped with cream cheese. Enjoy!
