I really love this berry yogurt parfait recipe! I’m always looking for healthy breakfast and snack ideas. It can be too tempting to grab a pastry or donut or to skip breakfast entirely. I know that’s not good for me. But, I certainly don’t have time to make something time intensive for breakfast. Breakfasts like this berry yogurt parfait can be made ahead and then enjoyed for breakfast throughout the week as you need it.

I love making my yogurt parfaits with Greek yogurt because it is thicker but sometimes Greek yogurt has a bit too much of a tang to it. I like to sweeten it a bit but I don’t want the added calories in my healthy breakfast. I generally choose stevia, monk fruit, maple, or honey to add a bit of sweetness.
Here’s what you need to make this berry yogurt parfait recipe:
Chia seeds – You will need chia seeds to make the chia pudding that is in this parfait.
Parfait cups – You will want a parfait cup so that you can make pretty layers of the different ingredients. Make sure they have long-handled spoons so you can reach the bottom.

Summertime means lots of fresh fruit so this berry yogurt parfait recipe is the perfect choice for breakfast. You can alternate which berries you use depending on the time of the year. Or, if it’s winter time, you can use frozen berries from the freezer.
This works wonderfully for a quick, healthy breakfast. But, it also makes a great dessert or snack. I like to make several so I have them on hand throughout the week.
