The Freshman Cook: Fresh Strawberry Breakfast Parfait / #FLStrawberry / #SundaySupper

Strawberries in the winter! Can you believe it? As a little girl growing up, we seldom had fresh fruit in the winter. It was unheard of. When I would have a craving for strawberries and there was snow on the ground in Ohio, I was told to “wait for summer”! Ugh, do you know how long that is when you are 8 years old? F-o-r-e-v-e-r!  But now I am an adult and one of the things I am loving~Fresh from Florida Strawberries! And I mean FRESH!, and in the winter! I can enjoy A Taste of Summer All Winter Long! These strawberries are amazing. I tasted them and I immediately had to make this Fresh Strawberry Breakfast Parfait. It is such a great way to start your day. This recipe contains 8 strawberries, which just so happens to be enough to fullfill your Vitamin C requirements for the day, and they are only 50 calories!

Fresh Strawberry Breakfast Parfait

 This makes 1 ~ 8oz. parfait
(printed recipe)
8-10 Fresh from Florida Strawberries
5-6 ounces Plain Yogurt
1/4 cup granola
shaved chocolate 
 Wash and pat dry 8-9 strawberries. Cut the stems off and cut them in half lengthwise. 
Place some of the berries in your glass at the bottom with the sliced top facing down. I used an 8 ounce glass for this recipe. You want to create a circle of strawberries around the bottom of the glass. If you need additional berries just add them.
 Dice your remaining strawberry halves into small pieces.
Add yogurt to the inside of the berry circle and a little over the top also. Use a pastry bag or just a spoon if you want. Top the yogurt with 1/2 of the granola. Add the diced strawberries to the top of the yogurt.

 Use a pastry bag, or a spoon, to top off the strawberries with more yogurt. Add a few pieces of granola to the top of the yogurt, a tiny bit of chocolate shavings and a big, fresh strawberry! 

Enjoy your healthy, nutritious breakfast! It takes only minutes to prepare and it is so easy to add flavor and nutrition to your first meal of the day! Start your day this way, and how can it be anything but great! Kick off the new year with Fresh from Florida Strawberries!
