Ginger Yogurt Parfaits with Cinnamon Pear
Who says breakfast doesn’t need to be gourmet? Perhaps spicing up your breakfast with a little ginger and cinnamon pears is the taste boost you need to get you going in the morning?
I love having a cup of yogurt for breakfast or a smoothie, but honestly I get bored with the flavor combinations sometimes. I know the yogurt companies try to make it appealing with all of their flavors and fillings but sometimes I just want to dress up my yogurt. (After all, someone should be dressed up in this house!)
And the great thing is that you don’t have to spend a ton of time in the kitchen making it happen. These yogurt cups can be thrown together in minutes and frozen. Then simply take them out the night before you want to serve, thaw them in the refrigerator, and you have gourmet breakfast on the go!
