Fruit & Muesli Yogurt Parfait

Breakfast cereals have gained enough importance in last few years as they are really very healthy. You don't need to cooked them so breakfast is ready in a minute. Most of the breakfast cereals are recommended to have either with milk or yogurt. So along with breakfast cereals you are also taking milk protein. Also you can throw some food into your breakfast bowl. Thus, it becomes a complete healthy and nutritious breakfast and filling too.

Muesli is also very popular these days. Muesli contains corn flakes, rice flakes, wheat flakes, oats and dry fruits & nuts. So it is a blend of everything. I am sharing a quick and tasty breakfast using muesli. I have added chopped apples and pomegranate pearls in my glass of parfait. You can add strawberry, blueberry or any other fruits. I have added honey in the yogurt but you can avoid it. So who doesn't want to have breakfast in a glass?? Planning for more recipes with breakfast cereals...

Fruit & Muesli Yogurt Parfait 

Muesli - 1/2 cup
Yogurt - 1 cup
Honey - 1 tablespoon
Fruits (I have used chopped apples & Pomegranate) - 1/2 apple chopped and handful pomegranate

1. Take a mason jar or a glass to prepare the parfait. Take yogurt in a bowl and add honey into it and mix well.
2. Now add half of the yogurt in the glass first. Then subsequently add fruits and muesli and again repeat the same layer by adding curd fruits and muesli. Serve it immediately.
