    Recipe Tip

    To make this parfait vegan, simply substitute the Greek yogurt with your favorite, dairy-free yogurt variety.

Lay on the Layers

No more skipping breakfast! This easy-to-assemble, whole-grain parfait is layered with creamy Greek yogurt, organic brown rice, cinnamon, granola and your choice of fruit. A parfait is a go-to meal for a quick breakfast, snack or dessert. This sophisticated dish is also ready in just 5 minutes!

This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled if you’ve got a few more mouths to feed. For best results, take a tall glass or parfait dish and add the first layer of the combined rice and yogurt to the bottom of the dish. This creates an even layer that lies flat along the base of the dish. Then, add a layer of 1/2 of the total amount of berries and fruit, a thinner layer of rice and yogurt and then the remaining fruit. Top with as much of your favorite granola as you like and serve with a huge spoon!

Parfait Party

For a cute dish to serve at brunch with friends or family, make this parfait recipe in small, individual jars. Using small jars adds a show-stopping aesthetic, and makes eating the parfait convenient and fun. If you want to go one step further and decorate your parfait, drizzle warmed honey across the top of the granola. The honey doubles as a natural sweetener and helps bring out the flavors of the fruit, yogurt and granola.

To make this dish into an impressive dessert, sprinkle some cacao nibs or chocolate shavings on top of the honey. You can even close the lid of the jar and take it to work or school. There’s nothing like a nice yogurt parfait on a hot summer or spring day. Take it on a picnic for a refreshing addition to the rest of your packed lunch.

Perfect for Everyone

With so many options available for vegan yogurt, it’s extremely easy to make this dish dairy-free. Substitute Greek yogurt for a non-dairy option, if needed.

If you want to make the parfait gluten free, you can substitute the granola with Minute® Ready to Serve Organic White & Red Quinoa or with your favorite gluten-free granola brand.
