Mapril - Day Five

Susan of 29 Black Street gently reminded me that we bloggers of a certain age need to eat more heart healthy. Seeing that Day Three of Mapril didn't exactly fall into that category, I found a nice healthy breakfast alternative. Maple Yogurt Parfait.

Maple Yogurt Parfait

Greek yogurt (in this case, non-fat) flavored with maple syrup, layered with granola, strawberries and blackberries. Remember the maple spiced nuts from Day Four? Cut them up and tossed them in with the granola. Enjoy!

And it's so good for you...unless you have a thing against dairy.

hmmmmm - that's my breakfast, blueberries for strawberries and I use honey. I think I'll try maple syrup.

Big Shamu said...

Very adaptable. Frozen fruit also works. Plus when you add your own sweet flavor to the yogurt, you can control the amount of sweetness.

The Sweeties are going insane for this. Off to make it this instant!!!!!

Big Shamu said...

...or you can eat it for dinner....

MakingSpace said...

No, DINNER MUST HAVE ONIONS.

OK our version, listing layers up from the bottom:

Strawberry flavored yogurt
granola
one large frozen strawberry
plain yogurt
real maple syrup
granola
one small frozen strawberry

The sound of silence, slurping, and crunching is deafening. Gracious, this is a popular one!!!

My kids are going through a growth spurt I guess, they want to eat all the time. This goes into the snack rotation. Thank you!

Ravenous little beasts.

MakingSpace said...

I know!!! I can't believe how much they've been eating recently. FEAR.

I'm off to cook dinner now after that. Yow!

Dani said...

I'm in the same boat. Elizabeth just keeps eating and getting taller.

MakingSpace said...

Gah! Why do they do this??!! LOL

Dani said...

I know! I got my grandpa's short Italian genes, another year and she'll be taller than me.

MakingSpace said...

I have a feeling my girls will be taller than me too. Lordy!

will someone teach her how to add a proper link to a comment ?? Chick ?? Shammy ?? MS ???

Susan, regarding the links, I don't think Blogger allows folks to do clickable links in comments. However, if you subscribe to the comments, then when a comment appears in your email it will have a clickable link. So - I can't click on your link here but I can in my email.

Hope that helps - now off to see about how to make granola...
