Lemon Blackberry Parfaits

Lemon Blackberry Parfaits are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or healthy snack midday, or even a quick dessert. You’ll love the fact these delicious parfaits are super simple to make. Made with organic honey granola cereal, lemon yogurt, delicious juicy organic blackberries, lemon zest, and a fresh sprig of mint, you can’t go wrong with this healthy recipe.

Most of you know by now I’m not a huge fan of dessert, I might crave it here and there, but sweets have never been my thing, so this is right up my alley for a quick go-to dessert sometimes. Don’t get me, wrong Y’all; I love to bake around the fall and winter holidays, just not in the HOT summer. I tend to crave dull, cold, and fruity during the summer. Don’t you?

 

Lemon Blackberry ParfaitsToday was a super hot day here in the South, and honestly, I was craving something a little sweet, tart, and yet a bit fruity, so I decided to pull out an old family favorite we call Lemon Blackberry Parfaits. Lemon is one of those fabulous clean tasting, tart, citrus flavors that goes over really well with my family and friends when they drop by the house.

 

 

 

Lemon Blackberry ParfaitsToss in some extra fresh organic sweet blackberries in this recipe, and your family will be in seventh heaven between the tartness of the lemon and sweetness of the blackberries. I like a little more crunch, so I try to look for the cluster granola cereal to give it a bit of crunchy oomph Y’all, but you can use whatever type of granola you prefer in your Lemon Blackberry Parfaits.

    I love parfaits, but I always forget to make them. I’m pinning this recipe for later, because these are such a fun and easy breakfast idea. I adore blackberries too, yummy!

    It’s been so long since I made an excellent old parfait. It is one of those recipes that you don’t make often, but when you do, the whole world stops! A delicious recipe that is definitely on my make again!
