Banana Cinnamon Bun Yogurt Parfait


Cinnamon Buns + Bananas + Chocolate Swirled Yogurt = Food Porn


To make the "chocolate swirl" effect, I mixed 2 separate batches of yogurt...


Batch A: 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1/2 scoop 
chocolate protein powder, poured into a glass bowl

Batch B: 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1 Tbsp cocoa powderand 1 tsp 
cinnamon, gently poured and "swirled" into Batch A, using a spoon


I added an extra scoop of plain yogurt on top of all that, 
before adding the bananas, to give it more "visual color contrast" 


Oh, what i'd give to be one of those banana slices right now haha


But we're not finished yet!


Time to add...




With lot's of plump and juicy raisins


I even made sure to re-heat the cinnamon bun 
just before mixing to give the parfait some warmth :)


Words can't begin to describe how delicious this was...


But pictures help!

I am sold! I could eat banana and yogyrt messes every single morning (and sometimes for lunch and dinner, too) and still not get bored with it. A simple but perfect combination!

Gah! That looks absolutely delicious.

I love mixing baked goods into my yogurt. This morning I had Greek yogurt with leftover, crumbled sweet potato corn muffins and banana, plus some raw honey and peanuts. It was delicious too.

Happy Tuesday, Kelsey!

Oh my goodness yum-- yogurt was my favorite food ever (right next to gluten bread and fruit) before going vegan. Luckily Wilwood makes an excellent unsweetened soyogurt, that I can sprinkle cinnamon on, just like in my younger youth!
