Healthy Eating Recipe For Berry Parfait

Finding sweet treat recipes that are also healthy recipes can be hard when you are trying to lose weight or lose post baby weight.

Most sweet treats are high in calories because they are made with ingredients like processed sugar, cream and butter.

This much healthier eating recipe is packed with antioxidants, fibre and vitamins, and doubles as a healthy breakfast or dessert option that will win over friends, kids and partners alike.

  • Half a cup of blueberries
  • Half a cup of raspberries

  • 40 grams fruit-free, untoasted muesli

  • Sprinkle the muesli, sunflower seeds, almonds and coconut flakes on top of the yoghurt.
  • Drizzle the honey on top of the muesli and nut layer, then add another dollop of yoghurt on top (by now, you should be at the top of the jar or dessert glass).
