Summer is here and we are taking time to slow down and satisfy our antojos with quick but delicious recipes. One of the ways my family slows down is by doing things differently, like having breakfast in bed. 🙂 It’s the perfect way to satisfy our antojos and bond as a family. We have a handful of recipes that we love but the Make-it-Your-Own belVita Breakfast Parfait recipe is at the top of our list. It is a simple to follow recipe which only calls for a handful of ingredients and can be done in 10 minutes. Yes, you read that right!
The ingredient that we love most and always have in our home is the belVita Breakfast Biscuits. These are a go-to for my family and while we mostly eat them while on the go, it’s a snack that brings us together. The girls love sharing the belVita Cinnamon Brown Sugar Breakfast Biscuits, their favorite flavor. Now that it’s summer and we’re spending more time at home, it’s nice to be able to slow down and savor them.
Being able to incorporate them into delicious recipes like this belVita Breakfast Parfait is a plus. This fun recipe has helped us make some fun memories already. The girls have not stopped talking about this delicious breakfast idea!
They really enjoyed helping me pick up all of the ingredients that we needed to make the recipe at our local H-E-B. They agreed on what day we could have breakfast in bed because we needed to make sure Papi was home to enjoy this moment with us. And they each picked what jobs they would do with my supervision, of course. Nalani crumbled the biscuits because she is the smallest and did a great job at it. While, Nayelli helped me measure the ingredients; the yogurt, honey, pineapple and flaked coconut. It was my job to blend the yogurt and honey and put together each layer of the parfaits. At some point Nayelli took over as supervisor and kept saying, “Mami make sure to do the layers right!” 🙂
While we used the same ingredients as the original recipe, there are other options. You can use your favorite variety of belVita Breakfast Biscuits for example, or even add your favorite fresh fruit, like chopped peaches or sliced strawberries. These parfaits are truly a delicious treat in the morning; while being a nutritious and balanced breakfast. Did you know that belVita Breakfast Biscuits provide nutritious steady morning energy and 19g of whole grains? That’s one of the reasons why they’re mama approved and a regular in our home. 😉
