Healthy parfaits are one of my favorite things to make for breakfast since they are not only super filling and full of nutrients, but they also look and taste absolutely amazing. It almost feels like I am having dessert for breakfast – does it get much better than that? Well maybe if I had actual dessert for breakfast. Parfaits might seem like a lot of work, but they are actually really easy to make and they usually do not take much time to prepare either.

Here are a few of my favorite Parfaits. I hope you like it as much as I do!
