For a protein packed breakfast or afternoon snack, try this PB & J Yogurt Parfait! Perfect for summer berries, back to school, and a protein-packed healthy treat with nutrients and healthy fats.
Peanut butter and jelly always reminds me of being a kid and my mom packing my lunches for school. I remember pulling my PB & J out of my paper lunch sack (along with my fruit roll up or cookies), and scarfing it down. As an adult, I still love the combination of peanut butter and jelly. With summer berries in full swing, and school for the kiddos wrapping up, it’s the perfect time for a new snack that also packs a punch with protein and healthy nutrients. This PB & J Yogurt Parfait makes the perfect breakfast (with a little granola added or whole wheat toast on the side), or is a great after school snack. It will fill you up, but won’t spoil your dinner.
Did I mention how gorgeous it looks? This version of the PB & J Yogurt Parfait has beets in the jam that add such a vibrant color. Here’s how you can make it yourself! First I made the Strawberry Beet Chia Jam. Then, all I had to do was take some plain yogurt and top it with peanut butter, jam, and fresh fruit. SO simple! It’s definitely a meal, or a snack, that you can feel good about eating yourself or making for your family and friends.
