Fresh Ginger Roasted Peaches layered with creamy greek yogurt and puffed cereal. Make Peach Breakfast Parfaits ahead of time for a healthy high protein start to your day with a refreshing kick.
We start these parfaits by roasting fresh ginger along with peaches to create an intensely fruity syrup with a touch of spice. The ginger adds a nice zing and something a little different to your standard yogurt bowl.
You can make the syrup ahead of time and store it in the fridge. I highly recommend making extra of it for topping waffles, pancakes, and ice cream! It would be great over Peanut Butter Stuffed French Toast!
Next we layer the roasted peaches with high protein yogurt and puffed rice cereal. This makes for a nicely balanced start to your day. The cool and creamy mix of yogurt and fresh fruit with a little crunch is a welcome change in the summer months from a pipping hot breakfast.
I use puffed cereal because its only 50 calories for a 1 cup serving and by now you know I love the Volume Food! You get a full cup of both yogurt and cereal for only 189 calories. But you can certainly opt to use granola or any other cereal of your choice.
Pin Ginger Roasted Peach Breakfast Parfaits
- 2 large peaches, cut in wedges (about 200grams)
- 30 grams (2 tablespoons) maple syrup, I used sugar free
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- 30 grams (2 tablespoons) orange juice
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 450 grams (2 cups) Vanilla Greek non-fat Yogurt
- 30 grams (1 cup) puffed rice cereal
- ½ cup blueberries (optional, bu they add nice color)
- heat the oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
- Mix the peaches, syrup, salt, OJ, and ginger in a bowl. Transfers the mixture to the baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until the peaches are soft. Remove and let cool.
- Place ½ of the peaches in the bottom of 2 glasses along with some blueberries if using. Add a layer of ½ cup of yogurt then ¼ cup of cereal. Repeat the layers once. Top with any remaining syrup from the peaches.
You can use plums in place of the peaches if you want.
