Pomegranate Yogurt Parfait
These pomegranate yogurt parfaits are so wonderful for a snack or for breakfast!
Here is a helpful tip: Make the crumble ahead of time and use it all week long! I like to store the right portions in a mini muffin tin in my refrigerator. Storing the crumble in the refrigerator helps keep the healthy fats fresh!
Nutrition benefits: a daily dose of probiotics can help keep your gut in tip top shape! This parfait has wonderful antioxidants in the pomegranates to help you reduce inflammation and improve your overall health. Lastly, the chia seeds and pecans are a wonderful way to add some healthy fats into your day. Did you know that chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids?
Cinnamon Pecan Crumble
½ cup Medjool Dates, pitted
½ tsp Vanilla
1 cup Pecan Halves, raw
½ tsp Cinnamon
¼ cup Old Fashioned Oats
2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1/8 tsp Salt
Makes 12 servings of crumble
For the rest of the pomegranate yogurt parfait:
½ cup 2% Plain Greek Yogurt
2 Tbsp Pomegranate Arils
Place all ingredients in a food processor. Place in 12 muffin tins—this is just to portion.
To prepare parfait, place ½ cup yogurt in a small bowl, add 1 serving crumble on top. Lastly, top with pomegranate.
Tip: to get the pomegranate seeds out of the Skin, slice the pomegranate in half. Over a large bowl in the sink, hold one half of the pomegranate over the bowl with the seed side down and hit the skin side with a spoon. I know this sounds silly, but it really works!
