When you first begin to recreate your lifestyle by making healthier choices, it can often seem as though you’re going to be missing out on the beautiful pleasures of life! All that encompass food, really.
I’ll definitely be one to tell you that in my childhood years of constant dieting, I often felt deprived. However, at the same time, dieting became my way of life that in reality I learned to love.
Today, my food creations seem to be greatly inspired by my childhood favorites 🙂
One of my all time unhealthy favorite foods was the McDonalds Fruit and Yogurt Parfait. The thought of it now is a bit disgusting just by knowing what’s in their food products.
SO, with reminiscing on this childhood fav…I’m excited to share this super simple remake with you!
Just in case you need to jaunt your memory…
If you stay away from dairy products, then you can substitute with a clean source of dairy free yogurt.
Keep an eye out for those chemicals in dairy free products, please!
I love to advocate Wallaby Yogurt because of their wide variety of cultures use in their products 🙂
I refer to them in a previous post featuring the best fermented foods you can purchase in the grocery store.
1 cup Wallaby Whole Greek Yogurt
1/2 cup fresh strawberries
1/2 cup wild frozen blueberries
1 Tsp raw unheated honey
1 Tbsp bee pollen
1/2 cup of rolled oats
Let blueberries thaw out for 10 minutes before making your parfait bowl for the perfect texture
Cut tops off of strawberries and slice them, in quarters or in thin slices 🙂
Scoop yogurt and place on top of berries. Sprinkle oats and bee pollen over yogurt, followed by drizzles of honey 🙂
I love to enjoy this bowl after a great long lap swim! This beautifully nutritious bowl sustains my “fuel tank” all day!
Enjoy every bite of this perfect parfait!
