What happens when you pair a health-conscious, vegan mother of two who has her own diet business with a husband and children who sometimes have other ideas? This blog is a chronicle of my journey to eat and live in a life-affirming way!

Strawberry Banana Spring Parfait and a Hail Merry Sweet Treat!

I am always looking for more healthy breakfast ideas and I was tiring of my old standards, so I decided to use the Creamy Dairy-Free Coconut yogurt I made a few days ago and make this Strawberry, Banana Granola Parfait!

Strawberry Banana Granola Parfait
4 strawberries
1/2 banana
1 cup of yogurt (So delicious is a dairy-free yogurt that we use at home if you don't want to make it!)
1/4-1/2 cup granola (I used Laughing Giraffe's Gluten-free, raw Cherry Ginger Walnut one)

Dice the strawberries and cut the bananas into very thin disks. Place a few heaping spoonfuls of yogurt in your cup, sprinkle granola on top covering area, then place a layer of sliced bananas on top then the strawberries. Continue until you have made the amount you desire. I did two layers and that was great for me.

I so enjoyed my breakfast and felt like I was having dessert for breakfast!!!

Speaking of dessert, yesterday High Vibe delivered some amazing treats that I have been dying to try. And, last night my husband and I tried the Hail Merry's Lemon Tart, which by the way is gluten-free, dairy-free and raw, and we were almost fighting eachother with our forks it was sooooo good. Here is a picture! 

Always like to share my new finds and heealthy and delicious- that's what I love! Enjoy your weekend!!!

Any special foods that you have found and loved? Would love to hear about them!
