Pomegranate and Wildflower Honey Parfait

honey parfaitIf you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But making time to have a nutritious, delicious and beautiful breakfast can seem like a daunting task. Enter honey-- the multipurpose, scrumptious, and healthy pick-me-up for an array of breakfast foods from coffee to scones.

This week is National Breakfast Week, and to honor the key role breakfast plays in our daily lives, I chose to make an elegant and simple go-to (and to-go!) parfait.

Parfait is the general name given to any combination of yogurt, fruit and granola. This time around, though, I've paired Savannah Bee Wildflower Honey with Greek yogurt and a less common fruit: pomegranates.

Wildflower Honey from Savannah Bee is 100% pure, unpasteurized and KSA Certified. Combined with the healthy probiotics found in Greek yogurt, the antioxidants in pomegranates and the fiber in granola, you've got a breakfast that's as healthy as it is easy to assemble.

Give this gorgeous, portable honey parfait a try for a productive and energized day!

Tips:

  • Buying pomegranate arils is much more convenient than cutting them out of a whole pomegranate, but can be slightly pricier. If you choose to harvest the arils yourself, do so the night before to save time during your busy morning.

  • Any granola will work, but choosing one with high fiber and protein will keep you feeling satiated until lunchtime.

  • Not a fan of pomegranates? Try blueberries, blackberries or another fruit that's low in sugar and high in antioxidants.
