I'm telling you, this Ohio weather is killing me... Our summer vacation started off with 55-degree temps, which has really put a damper on our usual summer activities!
Thankfully, the forecast is calling for a warmup later this week, but I'd imagine it will still be quite a few days before we can put our pool passes to use. So I thought I'd cheer the kids up with a fun breakfast that took almost no time to throw together -- a yogurt parfait bar.
The base for our yogurt parfait bar was new Yulu Aussie-Style Yogurt, which I happen to adore because it's smooth, delicious, and packed with protein (9 grams in every cup!).
If you've never experienced Australian-style yogurt, you've got to try Yulu. It's smoothed twice for extra creaminess, giving it a totally luxurious texture. Unlike Greek yogurt which some dislike because it tends to be slightly sour, Yulu Yogurt has a clean, fresh, lightly sweetened taste. I've tried all five Yulu varieties (vanilla bean, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, and honey), and I assure you, there's not one that's anything short of delicious.
Yulu Yogurt is one thing I can get all five of my kids to agree on, even the pickiest of the bunch. Of course, getting them to agree on toppings is another story...
Rather than take unlimited requests for this and that, I pulled out my chip and dip tray and told them we could fill each of the four slots with a topping. I suggested filling one with our favorite oats and honey granola, knowing that granola is something they all like.
I also suggested that a fresh fruit would make a great topping. Instead of one fresh fruit, we ended up using a mixture of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, which add beautiful texture and variety. We then filled the remaining two slots with sliced almonds and dried cranberries.
After we grabbed some spoons, our simple yogurt parfait bar was open for business! Not only did this start the morning off right, setting the tone for a fun day, but because we used the Yulu containers as our bowl, there was minimal cleanup. Which is totally awesome, because who wants to clean up a huge mess in the kitchen first thing in the morning?!?
