One thing that I have really enjoyed this past summer is making breakfast parfaits.
I do not know what it is, but they are just light on the system and they kinda trip the body into thinking that it’s getting a sugary treat so you don’t crave sugar all day (YAY!)
This parfait is sweet, HEALTHY, and satisfying!
Another thing that I am sure that you will appreciate is that it is quick and simple to make — really!
I know in the pic it looks all “jazzed” up, but it really isn’t hard at all. I like this because I have been faced with this last year rethinking this whole blog and my purpose, since I received so much feedback that people love the blog, but the recipes are sometimes laborious and not simple for a busy mom, dad, or grandparent.
Well I listened…
So, in efforts to respond to what people really want, I hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know if you do on here or on Instagram. Find me on instagram at @SweetnSavoryLife.
1 cup of frozen blueberries
2 very ripe sweet bananas
a splash of almond/coconut milk
1 large banana, chopped
Approx. 1/4 cup pecan halves
Unsweetened coconut shreds
To a blender, add a splash of almond/coconut milk, followed by 2 ripe bananas, and 1 cup of frozen blueberries. Blend this until thick and smooth. If you added too much milk, add a little more blueberries and blend. If you cannot get it smooth, its okay – blueberry chunks add a nice texture!
Next, place the blueberry banana mixture into the bottom of your cup(s).
Chop the ripe large banana and layer it next in the bowl or cup. Half and half if you are making two cups.
Add the pecan halves next.
Add to the top unsweetened coconut shreds – this step makes it cute!
Note: If you are making this just for you, follow instructions as written. If the parfait is for you and another, make sure to disperse the banana, pecans, and coconut shreds fairly :)
