  1. Healthy Recipe, Yogurt, and Frozen Berry Breakfast Parfait

    Use frozen blueberries, raspberries, or cherries here. All are packed with flavor and nutrients. And they begin to thaw to a sorbet-like consistency almost immediately. Combining them with thick, creamy Greek yogurt gives you the sensation of eating ice cream — plus protein and calcium. Choose plain so you can control the sweetness. Make it full fat to keep the hunger pangs at bay. Add nuts if you like. Serves 1.

    – Susan Puckett


    • ½ cup (or more) frozen blueberries, raspberries, or a combination
    • ½ cup (or more) plain full-fat Greek yogurt
    • 1-2 tablespoons chopped pecans or other nuts, preferably toasted
    • Honey, maple syrup, or agave for drizzling


    1. In a parfait glass or bowl, layer the frozen berries with the yogurt.
    2. Sprinkle with nuts, drizzle with the sweetener of your choice, and eat immediately.
