I’m a big proponent of breakfast. Whether it’s in the morning or evening {brinner anyone?} I think everyone should eat breakfast. It helps rev up your metabolism and keeps you from overeating throughout the day.

“But Danielle, I just don’t have time to make breakfast in the morning.” Everyone says that. I hear it all of the time. That’s why I’m here to save the day…more specifically your morning. And even more specifically with these healthy blueberry and cherry parfaits.

Make-ahead blueberry and cherry parfait

The beauty of these red, white and blue inspired parfaits is that they can be made ahead. Now there’s no excuse that you don’t have time to eat/make breakfast. Just whip up a big batch and top with granola in the morning.

These parfaits honestly couldn’t be simpler. In just 10 minutes you can have two breakfasts for the week. Double the recipe and you have almost your entire week of breakfasts done!

Assembling blueberry and cherry parfait

A good parfait starts with yogurt. I prefer plain whole milk Greek yogurt because of its probiotics, healthy fats and filling protein. Then stir in your own honey for sweetness. This way you know exactly what’s going into your yogurt and you can control the sugar.

My favorite part about these blueberry and cherry parfaits? The blended cherries! I love using no sugar added frozen pitted dark sweet cherries.

While summer is the perfect time for fresh cherries I just didn’t have the time. I wanted something fast. Which meant not dealing with pitting cherries myself. Although you could totally buy one of these cherry pitters and let me know how it goes!
