7 Healthy Overnight Breakfast Parfaits

Although I tend to be a morning person, I still like to sleep as late as possible before rolling out of bed. Once I’m up, I love a simple, yet nourishing breakfast to help me get going. That’s why these 7 Healthy Overnight Breakfast Parfaits are quickly becoming favorite staples in my home. They are made the night before so it’s easy to grab one and go the next morning.

Each recipe makes 1 – 2 parfaits, depending on the size of your container (I suggest that you use glass containers). Feel free to adjust the amount of liquid to make your parfaits thicker or thinner, according to your taste.

Each of the 7 Healthy Overnight Breakfast Parfaits is naturally vegetarian and ingredients can easily be modified to be gluten-free, paleo or vegan.
