Protein Power Breakfast Parfait
Makes 1 Serving
This recipe is flexible, for example, if you're not a fan of cottage cheese, use Greek yogurt instead. Any fruit will do and when it comes to the nuts, you can substitute with almonds or pecans.
½ cup low-fat cottage cheese + 1 tablespoon, divided
6 tablespoons (1/3 cup) high-protein, whole grain breakfast cereal, divided
½ cup mixed fruit (we used blueberries, raspberries, and quartered grapes), divided
2 tablespoons chopped toasted walnuts, divided
1 teaspoon agave or honey
Place ¼ cup of the cottage cheese in the bottom of a pretty glass. Top with 3 tablespoons of the cereal, ¼ cup of the fruit, and 1 tablespoon of the walnuts. Repeat the layers with another ¼ cup cottage cheese, 3 tablespoons cereal, and ¼ cup fruit. As a topper, add the remaining 1 tablespoon cottage cheese and 1 tablespoon walnuts. Drizzle agave on top.
