Cheese and yogurt were two of the things I missed when my family decided to transition to a plant-based-diet.  Luckily, there are now plant-based milks and yogurts in our local grocery store!  I take this Fruit & Yogurt Parfait for lunch frequently.  The fruit options are only suggestions- you can use whatever fruit and berries you enjoy.  I think fresh peaches (when in season) would taste great too!

Hope you try it!

-Madeleine Smith

Ingredients:

½ cup plant-based yogurt, unsweetened (I like Foragers Plain Cashew Yogurt)

½ cup strawberries, sliced

½ cup blueberries

½ cup blackberries

½ cup WELLstyle Breakfast Granola (see WELLstyle.net for recipe)*

Honey to taste

Method:

In a cup or jar layer the ingredients as follows:

Use 1/3 of the granola as a base layer, then 1/3 of the yogurt, topped by 1/3 of the fruit.  Repeat the process until all the ingredients are used.  Drizzle with honey to taste.  Enjoy!

My family loves green smoothies for breakfast!  Packed with vitamins, fiber, and natural unprocessed ingredients, green smoothies are an excellent replacement for processed, packaged fruit flavored juices in the mornings.  I have included my “basic” green smoothie recipe, but feel free to add ground flax, different fruits and greens (such as kale or swiss chard) or try adding a ¼ cup of raw walnuts for variation.  If you struggle with arthritis, try adding a bit of turmeric.  With a good blender, the green smoothie is ready in minutes, which is a requirement for my family’s busy mornings.  Have fun experimenting!
