Cranberry Breakfast Parfait

Recipe Image: Cranberry Breakfast Parfait

Do you love flavored yogurts at the grocery store like blueberry, key lime, strawberry, and even pineapple? We do, too! But, the cost of this fruit already added in usually also comes with tons of extra added sugar - not to mention fruit flavored yogurts can contain lower protein amounts than their plain counterparts. Not to worry, though, we've got a solution. Fruit flavored yogurts that are high in protein and low in sugar are a cinch to make right at home! By adding your favorite MRC protein powder to plain Greek yogurt, you've got a delicious fruit flavored breakfast PLUS an additional 15g of hunger-fighting protein! With a breakfast that's got over 30 grams of protein, you'll be full and satisfied for hours.

There's so much to love about this recipe. For starters, it's SIMPLE. All you need is plain Greek yogurt and your favorite protein powder. In this recipe, we've used our Cranberry Grape protein powder. There's no cooking involved whatsoever. Just take your yogurt and protein powder and mix them together until they're combined. MRC Clients know that many menus feature a carbohydrate serving with your meal. This recipe is perfect topped with your favorite fruit - and you've got a complete breakfast ready to go! We also love that this can be made ahead of time. If you know mornings are incredibly busy, spend 10 minutes whipping up 4-5 servings to have ready to go each morning. Lastly, we love that it's so versatile. There are as many flavor options as you have protein powders for - Cranberry Grape, Lemon, Pink Lemonade, Strawberry Kiwi, Wildberry, and even Cappuccino and Hot Chocolate can make a delcious chocolate yogurt breakfast! Get a little crazy or stick to the flavors that you love - the choice is all yours!

  • 4-6 oz. plain, nonfat Greek yogurt*

Variations and Options:

1) Top with any fruit you love. We used strawberries, but oranges would be wonderful here, too. MRC Clients, see your menu for exact portion sizes.

2) Parfaits can be made ahead, making them perfect for meal prep. Berries may become soggy over several days, so you might want to add them the same day you plan to eat your parfait.
