Eat Dark Chocolate Berry Yogurt Parfaits for breakfast for an indulgent start to the day. With DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut added into the mix, these parfaits make mornings dreamy.
When you’re on the go a lot, it’s hard to make time for breakfast — sometimes even lunch! As a freelancer who is not a morning person, I am always slammed with deadlines and running off to make recipes and attend events. Quick meals and easy snacks are my saving grace.
Most quick meals out there aren’t all that good for you, though. One of my goals for 2016 is to eat better, so I try to start off my days with a nutritious boost. And to do that, this night owl tries to plan ahead as much as possible. I have started making my own granola on the weekends, and the night before I need a quick breakfast, I layer the granola with yogurt, honey and fresh fruit. Homemade, make-ahead yogurt parfaits are great because you can control exactly what goes in them, and they’re ready to eat the next morning.
I recently discovered DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut and I have loved snacking on these crunchy nuts and chocolate-covered berries at my desk. Eating these treats is a great way to reward yourself for eating well! My morning granola needed a little something extra, so I added a few pieces of indulgent DOVE® Dark Chocolate Raspberry & Honey Roasted Almond into my breakfast. (You can eat well all you want, but sometimes you just need a little chocolate, right? Treat yo’self.)
And voilà! Dark Chocolate Berry Yogurt Parfaits.

I found the DOVE® Chocolate Fruit & Nut products at my local Walmart store, in a special display at the front of the store. I tried several of the flavors — the DOVE® Dark Chocolate Blueberry & Vanilla Cashew was so tasty! The DOVE® Dark Chocolate Cherries took me right back to ones I tried in Seattle last year!
So, that’s how you have a quick breakfast that’s both better-for-you and indulgent. Dark Chocolate Berry Yogurt Parfaits are the answer. // susannah
