Tasty Tuesday {fruit parfaits}

Welcome back to Tasty Tuesdays!  

May was an incredibly busy month and I hardly did any cooking, so it's been a few weeks since I've had any yummies to share with you.  I'm back in the groove now though!

If you're anything like me, you just may have some random bags of frozen fruit in your freezer and some bottom-of-the-box cereal sitting on your pantry shelf.  You know, little bits and pieces that you can't really make a whole recipe or a whole meal from.  

Well, since I didn't want to waste those things ...and I wanted to use them up before freezer burn or total staleness set in I decided to use those as ingredients for some yummy breakfasts.  Our family loves those little fruit and yogurt parfaits that are so popular now at fast-food chains and they are SO easy to make at home.   

Just grab whatever fruit you have in the freezer (and, of course, fresh fruit works wonderfully, too!).  I happened to have strawberries and blueberries on hand.  Just thaw your frozen fruit in a bowl of warm water  for a few minutes while you gather the rest of your ingredients (just remember to drain it well afterwards).

Pick up a large tub of blended yogurt (or your favorite kind) at the store--I like to use vanilla or strawberry.

Finally grab that almost-but-not-quite empty box of cereal or some granola and let's get started!

Take a small glass or cup and place a little yogurt in the bottom, then a layer of fruit, cover that fruit with yogurt, then sprinkle on some cereal, repeat layers at least once until glass is nearly full.  

And there you have your fruit parfait!  And that took less than 10 minutes to whip up!  Your family will enjoy a delicious breakfast (or snack) and you won't have to labor hours to make it happen:)

Oh yum! We had smoothies for breakfast which is almost the same thing. Such a great summer recipe.
