This patriotic parfait is the perfect remedy for a steamy July day when you’re craving something creamy and a little sweet for breakfast but you don’t want the same bowl of oatmeal.
It’s particularly ideal post-workout if you’re a morning exerciser, providing more than 20 grams of high-quality protein. Plus, the blueberries pack a solid antioxidant punch, which can help you recover faster from strenuous exercise, according to a recent study in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
Short on time? Keep a container of sliced strawberries in your refrigerator and this red, white, and blue parfait can be made in less time than it takes to go through the drive-thru!
