A Breakfast Meal Prep That’s Also Great for Kids

Since this easy recipe keeps in the fridge for five days, you can totally meal prep these parfaits for breakfast! I think breakfast can be the hardest meal of the day because most people are rushing off to work. So it’s nice to have something like these parfaits prepped and ready to eat.

This recipe is also very kid-friendly! These parfaits are loaded with probiotic yogurt, making them a gut-healthy snack for little ones. If you’re child doesn’t enjoy cranberries, simple switch out the cranberry for their favorite fruit or jam! The yogurt and granola pair well with just about any fruit.

Who else thinks that thanksgiving leftovers are the best thing ever? Thanksgiving is like a huge meal prep session, and the key is keeping things interesting as you chow on leftovers for five days! I feel like the thanksgiving cranberry sauce is what others struggle to find a use for. Not in our house though, because cranberry sauce is my favorite thanksgiving side!

Well, here is how you can use that cranberry sauce for a healthy and delicious breakfast, snack or dessert parfait. Simply layer yogurt, granola, and cranberry sauce in a jar… viola! You’ve got leftover thanksgiving cranberry sauce fruit and yogurt parfait.

I Love Recipes with Yogurt

These parfaits are healthy and can be made vegan and gluten-free depending on the ingredients you choose. You can use dairy yogurt or vegan yogurt, any granola that you love, and any fruit. I highly recommend using the leftover cranberry sauce though! It’s so yummy. Here’s everything you need for these parfaits:
