greek yogurt breakfast parfaits recipeMake these yogurt parfaits for a satisfying and nutritious breakfast or snack. Greek yogurt has a good amount of protein, which will keep you satisfied longer than normal yogurt. The fiber in the berries and grano will also fill you up. Grano are polished whole berries derived from durum semolina wheat. They can be found in Italian markets or health food markets. Substitute barley, brown rice, or wheat berries if you’re unable to find grano.


1 cup uncooked grano
12 cups water, divided
1/4 cup orange blossom honey
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 cups plain 2% Greek-style yogurt
2 cups fresh berries (such as blackberries, blueberries, or sliced strawberries)


1. Soak grano in 6 cups water overnight. Drain. Place in a medium saucepan with remaining 6 cups water over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until grano is just tender. Drain well. Stir in honey and salt. Cool to room temperature.

2. Spoon 1/4 cup yogurt into each of 8 parfait glasses. Top yogurt with 3 tablespoons grano and 2 tablespoons berries. Repeat layers with the remaining ingredients.
