Oatmeal Yogurt Fruit Breakfast Creation

Happy Fathers Day to all those Dads out there. Hope you had a good healthy breakfast like the one we had at Adobe Restaurant at the AZ Biltmore Hotel.

Summer breakfast couldn't get better than this with cool oatmeal, cream, yogurt, walnuts and fresh fruit. We biked at 6:30 am to the Biltmore along the canals with soft breezes and temperature in the 80s. Didn't want heavy food so this was just right.

I love the Yogurt Parfait recipe from Hassayampa Inn in Prescott. The Adobe adds cooked and cooled oatmeal. Nice touch. I ordered the cup and it was a lot. The bowl is even bigger- enough to share.

Yogurt Parfaits pg 52 Tastes & Treasures
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups fresh raspberries
2 cups granola
Strawberry yogurt
Mix the blueberries and raspberries in a bowl. Alternate layers of the berries and granola in parfait glasses or wine glasses and top with the yogurt.
Note: You can use homemade or commercial granola and low-fat yogurt in this recipe. A recipe for outstanding granola is on page 196 in Tastes & Treasures.
