I get tired of cold cereal in the mornings sometimes so I have been on the hunt for a different breakfast recipe to try. I found this breakfast recipe for Yogurt Parfaits in Tortilla Cups in the Tortillas to the Rescue Cookbook by Jessica Harlan. I love fresh fruit and Greek yogurt in the morning for breakfast and this is a nice change from having it with granola. It’s a very versatile recipe because you can use whatever type of fruit fruit is available in season in your area. You could even make it with canned fruit if you wanted to. Use dairy free yogurt & butter substitute to make this a vegetarian breakfast recipe.

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 medium (8 inch) flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 24 ounces vanilla or plain yogurt
  • 1 cup fresh berries
  • 1 cup diced fresh strawberries
  • honey for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon and the sugar. Brush the tortillas on both sides with the melted butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar. Stack the tortillas and microwave on high power until soft, about 15 seconds. Carefully crimp the tortillas to fit into the cups of a standard muffin pan, using your fingers to push the tortillas so that they form to the base of the pan. Bake the tortillas until they're crisp and hold their shape, about 15 minutes. Let cool.
  2. To make the parfaits, spoon a little yogurt into the base of each tortilla cup. Sprinkle with a layer of fruit. Drizzle with honey. Serve immediately.


I heated the tortillas in a pan until soft instead of using a microwave since we don't have a microwave.

  1. I maked them today but in muffin 12 tray (mini). It's perfect for a nice bite. instead of 15 min I put them 7 min in the oven. They are so delicious. Even I put some banana and chocolate sprinkles on top. Really great. Thanks
