The sixty-sixth recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Muesli Parfaits, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book So Easy, on page 36. The theme for the week was chosen by me: Red, White, or Blue, It's Up To You in honor of Independence Day.
Ingredient list: almonds, milk, yogurt, oats, honey, vanilla, and mixed berries.
Finding something red, white, or blue for this week was easy, Ellie has a lot of recipes in her books that are full of fresh fruit and veggies and encourages everyone to "eat the colors." I settled on this recipe as it worked nicely for breakfast this time of year with all the fresh berries on hand this season. You let the milk, oats, yogurt, honey, and vanilla sit overnight in the frig together and dress it all up with the almonds and berries in the morning, making for a quick assembly on a busy morning when you are in a rush to eat and get going. I think this one will be a recipe that I keep on hand and eat often in the summer months and I am thinking the stone fruits and apples of later summer would be nice with this as well. Filling and refreshing, this was a hit. Definitely a repeat.
