Strawberry Breakfast parfait

By • May 31, 2010 2 Comments



Author Notes: Strawberries and yogurt go well together with the added sparkle of citrus and ginger. Muesli soaked in yogurt priovides a soft and chewy texture. If you want to be decadent, top with a dollop of whipped cream. I used a homemade rhubarb puree inthe recipe but also tried it with blueberry jam. You could also mix in dried fruits and nuts.JoanG
