Happy Friday!!! 

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. I love all things breakfast. And one of the BIGGEST mistakes when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle or trying to lose weight is skipping breakfast. So many people do it. And the worst breakfast you can have? NO breakfast. It fuels you for your day and gets your metabolism moving!

I actually eat the most in the morning and then less and less throughout the day. This recipe is delicious, easy, quick, and it’s a great meal to start your day!

INGREDIENTS:

Oatmeal

  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 no-calorie sweetener packet
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
  • 1/8 tsp. vanilla extract



Parfait

  • 1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 medium banana, sliced

DIRECTIONS:

Combine all oatmeal ingredients in a small nonstick pot. Mix in 3/4 cup water.

Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer. Cook and stir until somewhat thick and creamy, about 9 minutes. (It will thicken upon chilling.)

Transfer to a medium bowl and let slightly cool. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 1/2 hours.

Stir oatmeal. In a tall glass, layer half of each ingredient: oatmeal, yogurt, strawberries, and banana.

Repeat layering with remaining ingredients.
