Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait

If you follow me on Facebook then you might have heard that I’m starting the BeachBody program where I’ll be working out daily, and eating well balanced meals. It’s part New Year’s resolution, and part I-want-to-look-awesome-for-my-30th-birthday… which happens to be just a few months away.

One thing you’ll never see me do is give up dairy to try and lose weight.

I’m a firm believer that dairy is significantly important in a healthy and well balanced diet. I still make sure I get 3 servings per day. That’s why I’m totally in love with this Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait.

It’s packed full of protein rich greek yogurt and sweetened with a touch of natural honey and fresh raspberries.

Since I’m working out, the protein in the greek yogurt will help to repair and build muscle tissues, as well as keep me full and focused on my goals.

To add a little more texture and fun to this little breakfast parfait, I whipped up some cinnamon and ginger wonton crisps. They’re light, crispy and can turn this quick breakfast into a beautiful dessert that will keep you on track!

I cut a few wonton wrappers into triangles then lightly sprayed them with cooking spray and sprinkled with a little bit of ginger infused cinnamon and sugar. The ginger adds just a touch of warm spice to the sweet crisps.

While the crisps are baking I quickly added a scoop of greek yogurt to a dish then a few raspberries and a drizzle of honey.

Then I repeated the process to make it a true parfait.

I just love the layers going on here.

With or without the crisps, this Raspberry Greek Yogurt Parfait is ready in minutes for a quick and healthy breakfast or a sweet treat any time of the day.

If you’re not a raspberry fan you can easily switch it out for any fruit you like, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc…
