Making sure you have the fuel for the day by starting off with a great breakfast is so important and is a huge part of my personal plans for making 2018 a great year. I stay very busy, so having a strong start to the morning is one of the most important things I can do. These Cran-Blueberry Breakfast Parfaits are the perfect way to start the morning and we have a great trip to help your kids take them on-the-go for those mornings when you are short on time.
We all know how important breakfast is. Making it happen every day is a completely different story. With 6 kids, and a crazy morning drop off schedule, we need something easy.
I’m a big fan of make-ahead breakfast ideas that my kids can take on the go. We try and have breakfast at home, but on those morning when we just can’t get our act together, we need our breakfast to be portable to make sure they get something good for them before school.
I love a good breakfast parfait. I put mine in Mason jars and love them that way, but my kids can’t take a glass jar with them on the ride to school so they need something a bit more kid-friendly.
That’s where these Cran-Blueberry Breakfast parfaits come in. We put them in silicone popsicle molds so my kids can grab them out of the fridge in the morning when they need a self-serve breakfast or take them with them when they run out the door if we are short on time.
We used the new Grape-Nuts Trail Mix Crunch in these. This naturally flavored granola with vanilla, crunchy Grape-Nuts, sweet cranberries and a touch of puffed barley adds an amazing touch to any breakfast. It keeps its crunch even when layered with yogurt and adds the perfect flavor and texture to these breakfast parfaits.
We found Grape-Nuts Trail Mix Crunch at our local Walmart and, after trying it, we are hooked.
This is such a fun twist to the classic Grape-Nuts cereal. It’s definitely going to be a staple at my house. Right now, use this ibotta deal to earn cashback when you try it out for yourself.
Grape Nuts can help fuel your day and this easy parfait makes mornings so much easier.
Cran-Blueberry Breakfast Parfaits Ingredients
- Grape-Nuts Trail Mix Crunch
- Vanilla yogurt
- Coconut flakes (optional)
Cran-Blueberry Breakfast Parfaits Instructions
In a Mason jar, layer yogurt, Grape-Nuts Trail Mix Crunch, and blueberries.
This can be made overnight and sealed in the fridge so it is ready to go in the morning.
For your kids:
If you need a more portable option, use silicone popsicle molds. You can do this one of two ways: layer the ingredients, just as you did in the Mason Jars, or mix them all together and then fill the silicone popsicle molds.
If you will be storing these overnight, I recommend layering them, but either option works great.
These make such a great breakfast when you need something fast. My kids go nuts over the idea of eating their breakfast in a popsicle mold and I love the flavor combination of Grape-Nuts Trail Mix Crunch with fresh fruit and yogurt.
