Blueberry Granola Yogurt Parfait - Day 9

Now who say you can’t have dessert for breakfast? I made this parfait over the weekend for our breakfast. Carlos thinks I was crazy serving him ice-cream ha ha..No it is something healthy. It has granola, fresh blueberries and yogurt in it. Guess what, he likes it a lot. So, if your kids are fussy about their breakfast, maybe you can prepare them this. I am sure they are going to like it as much as we do.

Ingredients:

2 slices whole wheat bread
8 oz plain yogurt
½ cup fresh blueberries
½ cup granola cluster
2 tbsp honey



Blueberries compote:

1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
1 tbsp honey

1. Cut the bread to the size of the bottom (round) of the jelly moulds. Put the granola in the food processor and give it a few pulses. In a mixing bowl combined the yogurt, honey, blueberries and granola. Mix really well.
2. Line the moulds with some plastic wraps. Fill up the moulds with the yogurt mixture and place a round piece of bread at the end. Put the moulds into the freezer and let it set compeletly.
3. In the meantime, prepare the compote. In a small saucepan, combined the blueberries and honey. Cook until the berries burst and soft and sauce thicken. Set it aside.
4. Remove the jelly moulds from the freezer. Unmold it and serve the parfait with some blueberries compote.


Note: You can always replace the blueberry with any type of fruits of your choice.
