Parfaits can be delicious. They’re also pretty overdone so are often also just “meh.”
We like this one because it switches things up a bit by using quinoa instead of the usual granola and acai berry puree, which is pretty unusual. (You could also call it a layered acai bowl, come to think of it.)
By using Greek yogurt, we maximize protein for all-day energy.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Move over eggs. This tasty parfait is filled with protein thanks to supergrain quinoa and yogurt, which also contains beneficial probiotics for gut health. Walnuts provide heart-healthy fats; acai and blueberries provide antioxidants. It’s a dish that will satisfy your morning hunger and set you up for a full day of good food choices.
