    So pretty! Small one would be thrilled!

    These parfaits looks so easy and delicious! I really do need to make more time for myself in the morning to have breakfast. Is there a particular brand of cherry jam that you like to use? My favorite was black forest cherry preserves that I had in Germany, but sadly, it is difficult to find in the U.S. I loved that it wasn’t too sweet.

      Thanks Suzanne. My sister tends to send me tons of cherry jam. I have some from a little place in B.C. called Horstings that I love. Then I have a couple that are homemade I found at farmers markets. For cheap but good I like the twice the fruit one but for some reason it’s practically impossible to find the cherry version here. I also have a sour cherry one from Horstings I sometimes use. Today’s choice was Smallwoods Harvest Sweet Cherry Jam. I honestly think I have 12 kinds in my fridge.

      I would go nuts for black forest cherry preserves. That sounds divine.

    Ah yes I am one of the 99% with little time at hand in the morning. Even the squirrels on our mango tree have proper breakfast in the morning. ^.^ That’s one heck of a gorgeous morning breakfast treat Kim. I am all for your parfait! =P

      Lol Helene, I think the birds and squirrels here eat better than us too.

      Thanks lady. I just love these things. I’m not typically a breakfast lover but stuff like this I can do.

    That’s the kind of breakfast I can serve Dudette without her turning her nose up at it. It looks fantastic!

      She would love this. It’s so fun to make too. If she likes bacon and/or potatoes tune in tomorrow. Sort of a cool one coming up.

    Why have I never had parfaits for breakfast? I gotta start having these! They look terrific. Truly good stuff – thanks.

      Kim Beaulieu says:

      Lol John. You must. These bad boys get even a breakfast hater like me eating breakfast. I love parfaits way too much.

    Your parfaits look lovely! Love the idea to add jam to mix things up a little, so it’s not just yogurt and granola… but still so quick to throw together in the mornings. :)

      Thanks Allison. I am such a big cherry fan that I’m always dreaming up ways to sneak it into my diet.

      I’m in. I adore cherry. It’s right up there with peaches. And turtles.

      You do woman. Should I talk to da man?
