These breakfast parfaits are my favorite. This is for real. Breakfast parfaits or bust.
Since becoming a parent, weekday breakfasts have been the trickiest meals of all. They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s also the earliest. I’m tired, the kids are hungry, and we have approximately 2.8 billion things to do before we can walk out the door for school at 8:15 AM. I don’t like to admit it, but I have been that mom that gives her kids a banana in the car on the way to school and calls it good.
And on top of the early hour and busy schedule, my kids don’t love any of the standard easy breakfast options like scrambled eggs or oatmeal. I’ve tried many variations on the breakfast classics, but to no avail. So it’s early, we’re in a hurry, and I have to be creative? It just doesn’t work out very often.
But that’s where these breakfast parfaits swoop in and save the morning. Tah dah!
If eating a healthy breakfast can improve concentration, performance, and brain function, then as a mom, it’s imperative I solve our breakfast dilemma. These Chai Spiced Yogurt Parfaits with Apricots are my favorite breakfast solution. They’re healthy, with nutritious fruit, high protein yogurt, and whole grains in the form of granola (I’ve got to sneak that oatmeal in there somewhere) and they are so quick and easy! The chai flavored spices are my creative addition to this super simple breakfast and it is mighty tasty – just ask my kids!
To make it even more simple and ensure that I always have fruit to make this breakfast happen, I rely on the Libby’s canned fruit I can keep in my pantry. I always know I can count on Libby’s to deliver high quality canned fruit. The Libby’s Apricot Halves are the best of canned fruit. They taste fresh, firm, and juicy and are the perfect addition to a good yogurt parfait. Keeping breakfast simple and easy is the best way I know how to make it happen all five weekday mornings.
But while these breakfast parfaits are the very definition of easy, they are pretty enough to stand in for even the most special breakfast and brunch occasions. To make them more special, top them with lightly sweetened whip cream. If it’s just an ordinary Tuesday morning, skip the whip cream and just enjoy an extra sprinkle of crunchy granola on top.
And, I know from experience that they make a portable breakfast too – just make them in a mason jar and you can hand them out in the car on the way to school if you’re mornings are anything like mine.

These look delicious! Lately I’m lovin the combo of smoothies and healthy breakfast cookies or muffins. Also, been super into overnight oats. Had them 3 times this week, so good!
For breakfast I enjoy smoothies or leftovers. I prefer breakfast foods for dinner. It’s just easier to have leftovers and that meal is usually much hardier (like steak or steak in a salad). Helps me start the day feeling healthy.
I like strawberry and kiwi smoothies for breakfast
I usually make a big batch of pancakes or muffins to begin the week off. By the end of the week when our fresh homemade baked goods are gone, we resort to blue berry cinnamon oatmeal -the kids usually love it!
I just started doing steel cut oats last week after a decade of dedicated oatmeal eating.
Steel cut oatmeal is pretty much my breakfast these days. Would you be publishing your kids’ summer reading list this year? Can’t wait 🙂
I’ve got a whole bunch of good summer reading posts for all ages coming right up – they’re my favorite posts of the year! It makes me so happy to know someone is looking forward to them, so thanks Shakila! 😉
Yay! Thank you, thank you! I grew up influence by mostly British children’s books so I love your recommendations! Oh and we’re a fellow Montessori and Suzuki violin family as well 🙂

On special occasions, I like bacon and eggs. Most of the time I prefer a fruit smoothie or yogurt.
Your apricot parfait look scrumptious, I enjoy a good Apple cinimon smoothly with eggs and toast for breakfast. Thank you
I like eggs for breakfast, but I wouldn’t say no to a smoothie.
I like smoothies for breakfast. I also enjoy frappe so this would be great. Thanks
This recipe looks so good. I need to add variety to my cold cereal routine.

My favorite breakfast is lemon waffles with strawberries! But, this looks so super yummy.. I can be flexible with my favorites!! 🙂
These look fantastic. Libby’s appears often at our house, especially because one of my main pregnancy cravings has been pears – in any way, shape, or form!
I love anything for breakfast, but I hate making breakfast. Never been a morning person. My poor kiddo’s fend for themselves many a mornings.
Oatmeal with dried fruit
I’m a bacon and eggs, homefries kind of breakfast person.

I switch between oatmeal and fruit smoothies. Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful giveaway!

I have a protein smoothie every morning without fail. I had bariatric surgery and I start the protein load from the very start of the day but I LOVE your idea of putting it in a mason jar for a snack on the go! I would eat this for lunch, snacks and dinner. It looks so yummy. Thanks for the recipe
I like to have oatmeal for breakfast
I love to eat oatmeal with fresh fruit on the side or cereal for breakfast.
