Red, White, and Blueberry Parfait

This patriotic parfait is the perfect remedy for a steamy July day, when you’re craving something creamy and a little sweet for breakfast but you don’t want the same old boring bowl of oatmeal.

It’s a particularly ideal post-workout if you’re a morning exerciser, providing more than 20g of high-quality protein. Plus, the blueberries pack a solid antioxidant punch, which can help you recover faster from strenuous exercise, according to a recent study in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.

If you commute in your car to the gym, it might be tempting to hit the drive thru at McDonald’s to pick up their Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfait, but this version contains less carbs, less sugar, twice the fiber, and nearly six times the protein.

Short on time? Keep a container of sliced strawberries in your refrigerator and this red, white, and blue parfait can be made in less time than it takes to go through the drive thru!

Hi! I'm Monica, the face behind Munchkins and Coffee.  Like most, I enjoy long walks on the beach and quiet dinners with the Mister. But let's be real, I'm a mom to 2 munchkins and to 2 4-legged kids so those things are few and far between.  I dabble in a variety of DIY projects and crafts and sell SVGs for the Cricut/Silhouette. I love to cook and bake and I'm a type 1 diabetic. Target and H-E-B are my happy places. I love to read but don't do it as much as I'd like and I'm totally guilty of binge-watching shows on Netflix, Hulu, and Prime. Coffee gets me through the day and is my "drug" of choice. 🙂 That's where the name comes in. Kids, life and all the beautiful chaos in between. So, check out my Etsy shop for SVG/cutting files for your Cricut/Silhouette and keep an eye out on here and my Facebook for my free cut files.
