I was given the opportunity to do a guest post on a friends’ site.
Here’s the link for an inside scoop on my life and loves!
Inspiring women- life with Dixie
Pina Colada parfait! Try this delightful combination for breakfast or as dessert. As an added bonus there are 9 grams of protein, which helps us feel full longer. Most women need to eat more protein. Here’s the recipe with step-by-step directions and pictures too!
1 cup of frozen pineapple chunks
2 teaspoons of flaked coconut (1 tsp. for garnish)
1 container of coconut flavored Greek yogurt (I like Wal-Mart’s Great Value brand best)
I like to use my mini food processor for this recipe. It’s great for the small quantity.
Place pineapple in processor.
Add yogurt and 1 teaspoon of coconut.
Process on high until the pineapple is cut and mixed into the yogurt. Sometimes I thaw the pineapple slightly so that it cuts easier.
Then place the mixture in a chilled parfait glass.
Top with the remaining teaspoon of coconut and 1 small piece of pineapple as a beautiful garnish.
This can be eaten right away or placed in the freezer for ½ an hour.
This is a delicious breakfast on a hot summer morning or a delightful healthy dessert.
I ate this one as part of my lunch!
Here’s the nutrition breakdown.
