Berry Walnut Parfait

Fresh berries, high protein Greek yogurt and crunchy walnuts are a tangy and sweet combination for breakfast or brunch. Serve it up in a mason jar for a casual brunch party or an easy breakfast on the go.

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces Fat Free Greek Plain Yogurt
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Makes 1

Directions

  1. Chop up walnuts or smash them using the bottom of a bowl to release the oils. In a small bowl combine walnut pieces, vanilla and cinnamon, stir to coat. Spread coated walnuts on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake at 350'F for 4-7 minutes until toasted and fragrant.
  2. Assemble parfait. Begin with a layer of yogurt then a layer of berries. Continue layering and top with toasted cinnamon-vanilla walnuts and a sprig of mint and serve.
  3. Tips/Notes: If making this in advance, store walnuts separately until ready to serve to preserve their crunchiness. Additionally, consider making a larger batch of toasted walnuts and separating them into 2 tablespoon portions for quick assembly on busy mornings.
