Brezert! It's what's for breakfast!

Or as it is more commonly known...

Strawberry Peanut Butter Parfaits

These amazing treats that pass as a wholesome, and delicious breakfast, are a crowd favorite at the Rylands' home!

Our youngest son, Tommy, coined the phrase "brezert" after his first time eating this breakfast parfait because he said it tasted way too good to be "breakfast" and no one gets dessert in the morning, so it needed its own term.
(For those who are not familiar with our son, this is "Classic Tommy".) 

We start with whole milk Greek yogurt. 
I typically use Stonyfield since my local grocery carries it. 

Mix in the natural peanut butter.
(it would be fine in my opinion to use any nut butter so long as it doesn't have anything added)

Add in the cream, sweetener, vanilla, and flaxseeds. 
Mix well.

Now, take your parfait glasses and spoon in a portion of your yogurt mixture.

Layer some strawberries.


Needless to say, they LOVE, LOVE this breakfast item and I am thrilled to serve it to them!

In fact, I rarely if ever have anything for breakfast other than my all time favorite Isa Lean Shake from Isagenix, because it is that good, but occasionally, I do make an exception.

THIS is one of those meals!

See if your kids don't just rave about it too!
