Do you know what spring means? Spring means it’s time to gear up for bikini season. I know, it can be so dreaded, right?
Trust me, if you are a regular reader here, than you know dessert is legit meal, not an afterthought to breakfast, lunch or dinner.
That said, I’ll take moderation over deprivation any time. And I am going to moderate my dessert eating by interspersing in healthy bites with things like this Blueberry and Almond Coco Loco Parfait and the pumped organic oatmeal bowl. A recipe that is simply pulled together from Chobani’s ® new Chobani Flip™ Almond Coco Loco and their regular vanilla yogurt blended with blueberries and Quaker’s® Organic Instant Oatmeal.
Both of which I picked up from Vons—my go to grocery store. I have two grocery stores near me, and Vons is the only one I go to—for the reasons you see here–there’s always a variety of choices. And my favorite parts are the bulk bins, the health food section, and the abundance of organic products from produce to things like this organic Quaker® Oatmeal. I love that it’s a one-stop store. And since I’m a sucker for marketing, I love that Vons place “New” tags on new products—something that never fails to lead me to exploring and purchasing items I would have otherwise missed.
This is especially important since, towing kids around from store to store isn’t ideal, and I’m the first to admit, I’d rather run 6miles than to hear them whine about driving all over town. And this meal, maybe be my bikini slimmer, but I always double up on the ingredients, because this is the power parfait/smoothie I give to my family. I’m doing a slash on parfait and smoothie, because call it a parfait to a kid and he’ll turn his nose to it—call it a smoothie and he’ll down—mom tricks!

A parfait for brekkie always makes me feel like I’m on holidays! Love this!
Oh I so love Chobani flips. They have such great flavor combinations! Love this breakfast parfait!
I love breakfast food SO MUCH. Especially layered pretty breakfast foods, any breakfast containing greek yogurt for sure and berries too. Gotta have loads of fruit. Clearly, I love this!! And yeah, bikini or dessert? I’d still have to say dessert. You just can’t not do dessert.
So pretty, the perfect way to start the day!
I could live on parfaits, no joke. This looks like the perfect pre-bikini season breakfast!
Such a great way to start the day!

These parfaits are almost like having dessert for breakfast, but in a healthy non bikini busting way. Love all the berries added in!

Ahh, can’t wait for the warmer weather here in NY! I’m so done with this winter!
