Simple Breakfast Ideas – Dragon Fruit Parfait

Finding simple breakfast ideas that are healthy can be a challenge. In the morning, I’m rushed for time. I’m trying to make sure that everyone gets off to work or school while starting up things for my work day. My normal go to breakfast on a busy day is yogurt and fruit. Sometimes I make it a little different and turn it into a parfait like this Dragon Fruit Parfait I made in honor of the all-new Netflix original series Dragons: Race to the Edge. I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team.

Simple Breakfast Ideas – Dragon Fruit Parfait

If you’ve never tried Dragon Fruit before, you don’t know what you’re missing. Dragon Fruit is also called a pitaya and is actually an exotic cactus fruit. Your dragon fruit may have a white center or a bright pink center depending on the version that your store carries. My stores only carry the one with the white center. Not only does this work if you’re searching for simple breakfast ideas, it’s the perfect healthy dessert!

Soaring beyond their home on the island of Berk in search of new dragons, Dragons: Race to the Edge introduces some of the most exciting dragons yet, each with its own amazing abilities — shock waves, cannon balls and fire blasts, just to name a few.

With the magical Dragon Eye, an artifact Hiccup finds aboard an abandoned ship, Hiccup learns there is more outside the confines of Berk, and that a little curiosity and determination can make every day an exciting journey. In Hiccup’s own words, “this changes everything.”

  1. I did not realize they had added this to Netflix. My kids will love to watch it. Love your idea for the Dragon Parfait. Sounds delish!
  2. I've actually  never had dragon fruit before, but that parfait looks amazing. We love the How to Train A Dragon movies in our house :)
  3. When I'm trying to theme foods for my kids, I normally end up with desserts based off of their favorite characters.  This parfait would be such a fun, more nutritious way to bring the dragons home with us.
  4. I've never tried dragon fruit but I'm not much for fruit (but huge veggie fan). Love the lunch box. I have a soft side red and pink Hello Kitty lunch box, which I love.
