I love it when I come up with a recipe that is not only healthy and tastes great but looks like something you’d find from a 5-star restaurant! Eight years ago I lost 130 pounds! In order to lose weight and maintain my current weight, I had to make some lifestyle changes.

What I ate for breakfast was one of them. I am thrilled to share a new way to do breakfast! If you are tired of the same old bowl of cereal, oatmeal, or toast, here is a healthier option.

This Parfait may very well be your next favorite! As a healthy alternative to store-bought yogurt or even my normal tried and true Instant Pot yogurt, this overnight recipe will leave you feeling renewed and refreshed in the morning with its piles of berries and a hint of chia seeds!

Recently my husband, my Veteran, was diagnosed with diabetes. Did you know that Chia Seeds are really good for diabetics and can be helpful in lowering glycemic index! There are actually a lot of other health benefits to chia seeds, but that is just one that is super important to us right now!

Another ingredient that is super amazing is PURE maple syrup. That is better for a diabetic too!

I love it when healthy becomes so easy. I also live in a house with kids that love oats they love yogurt. This recipe is also kid approved!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup oats (not instant)
  • 1.5 cups almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 6 strawberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 can full fall coconut milk, chilled in the fridge overnight
  • 4 drops liquid stevia

Cans (Count of 12)Native Forest Organic Classic Coconut Milk, 13.5-oz. 

Directions

Make the oats by combining the first four ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well and let sit overnight (or at least four hours) in the fridge.

The next morning, prep your fruit by slicing the strawberries.

If you’ve placed the can of coconut milk in the fridge, it should be hard and solid when you open it.

Place the coconut milk into a bowl and add the stevia. Using an electric mixer whip the coconut milk until it’s light, fluffy and resembles whip cream.

Begin layering your parfait with oats, berries and coconut whip.

Enjoy!

Makes two large servings or three small ones.

Note: Using full-fat coconut milk is necessary. If the milk is not solid upon opening it won’t whip. If you flip the can upside down before placing it in the fridge the liquid separates making it easier. I’ve found the brand “Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk Classic” works best.
