Strawberry Banana Breakfast Parfaits
Are you ready for dessert for breakfast parfaits that are as decadent as they are easy to make? Only four simple ingredients!
Here’s what you need for each parfait, just multiply the ingredients if you are making for a brunch crowd.
- Dannon Strawberry Whole Milk Yogurt (5.3 oz container)

In large parfait glasses start by layering about half of the strawberries, followed by half of the Dannon Strawberry yogurt. Then, sprinkle some granola on top.
Then, it’s time to add a Diana’s Bananas Banana Babies on top. Then, repeat the three layers around the banana ending with the remaining strawberries and a dash of granola. Are you feeling hungry yet?
