Here’s a fun and festive breakfast you can serve to your loved ones on July Fourth or any other patriotic vacation – Berry Patriotic Yogurt Parfait. These parfaits are very healthy and so easy to make. They’re much like fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt but without all of the added sugar along with a significant helping of refreshing berries at the top. You may be tempted to use store-bought jam to create these parfaits but I urge you never to, as it needs less than two mins to prep the raspberry chia jam and you will be rewarded with delicious, sugary, tart, jam you’ve ever tasted! (The method to make this jam works together with frozen blueberries too.)

To help make the raspberry chia jam place 1 1/2 cups of frozen raspberries in a small glass dish, microwave them on high for 1 minute, and mash them up with the tines of a fork. Add 2 teaspoons of sugar, mix, and microwave once again for 30 secs to dissolve all the sugar.
Add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and mix the mixture prior to transferring it to some jar or Roasted Pork Belly Calories various other storage box. Cover and refrigerate the jam for many hours or right away. As it cools, the chia seeds become hydrated and broaden, thickening the combination and making it jam.
After the jam has thickened, simply layer the ingredients right into a pint size mason jar and it’s ready for serving. The diet facts for any Berry Patriotic Yogurt Parfait are amazing – 10 grams of proteins and 9 grams of dietary fiber. However, most amazing may be the lower sugar content. Think about this: a 6 ounce serving of one of the most well-known national brands of fruit-on-the-bottom yogurt (blueberry flavor) offers 24 grams of glucose. The same size portion of the Berry Patriotic Yogurt Parfait provides just 11 grams of sugar – less than half the glucose! That’s huge!
These delicious Berry Patriotic Yogurt Parfaits are so pretty therefore patriotic you’ll forget how healthy they are! For anyone who is buying nice salad to make over the 4th have a look at my Berry Patriotic Salad with Gluten-Free Star Croutons post. Happy Independence Day!
