Delicious Breakfast Parfaits

I personally love it when I can make a tasty treat ahead of time. Since the holidays are super busy, 7 Healthy Overnight Breakfast Parfaits may be just what you need to start the day. These delicious parfaits can also be modified to be gluten-free, paleo, vegan, and vegetarian and make a nice little addition to breakfast for overnight guests.

One recipe for Pumpkin Mousse Parfaits will yield four (2 cups each) parfaits and require only 1 hour of refrigeration before serving. However, another option is to simply refrigerate them overnight.

I like to garnish each parfait with a sprinkle of ground nutmeg and a few graham cracker crumbs.

    I am planning to make these today but am confused about why if using sugar free instant pudding I would only use a 1oz pack and if using regular would need a 3.56oz pack.

      Hi Sara, The sugar-free version doesn't weigh as much as the regular package. It's the same with gelatin. Have fun and I hope you enjoy the parfaits! Linda
