Breakfast Protein Parfait
Here’s a great recipe to make the night before for an easy grab-n-go breakfast straight out of the fridge. It’s packed with protein, vitamins and minerals for sustained energy all morning long. And it tastes great too.
¼ cup Greek Yogurt, plain, fat free
¼ cup low fat cottage cheese
1 scoop high quality strawberry or vanilla protein powder
¼ cup fresh berries
1 Tablespoon pecan pieces, toasted
In a small bowl use a whisk to combine the yogurt, cottage cheese and protein powder. Mix until well incorporated.
Place half of the yogurt mixture into a clear cup, top with the berries and then the remaining yogurt mixture. Top with pecans.
