Frozen Cherry and Carob Oat Parfait

A Frozen Fruit and Oat Parfait is the best Breakfast on a hot Summer morning

Click here for the basic Recipe

Instead of Frozen Blackberries, Raspberries, 
and Banana, I used Frozen Cherries and Banana

Layered between the fruit is Overnight Carob Oats with Chia Seeds 

"My Cup Runneth Over" :)

I was inspired by Chocolate-Covered Katie's Chocolate-Cherry Bomb Oatmeal

With a cherry on top and a tripod of cherries on the side to garnish

Cherries and banana...I don't know if I would like that combo. I'm so picky with my banana pairings - we tolerate each other to an extent, but it's not my favourite fruit, that's for sure. Love the way the parfait looks though!

"my cup runneth over" - brilliant :-)
Looks like a great breakfast, just wish it was hot enough here for something like that!

Alexandra (Veggin' Out in the Kitchen) said... [reply]

Mmmm.. cherries AND carob? How could I possibly say no?! ;) I usually go for smoothies on warm days, but this looks like the perfect change of pace! :D

Have a super wonderful weekend!

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish said... [reply]

This is possibly THE most creative breakfast I've seen in a looong time! I eat a hot meal almost every morning, but in 100-degree weather, sweating alongside my breakfast isn't the ideal way to start the day. :-p I'd love to try a frozen parfait. Thanks for inspiring me, Kelsey! xoxo

Jamie @ snacktress said... [reply]

Oh heavens, that looks DELICIOUS! Refreshing and filling, I'd assume. I love summer because of the cherry abundance, mmm!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - I LOVE yours. Looks like my blogroll is getting a new addition. Your pictures are TA DIE FO!

Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun said... [reply]

I haven't had a parfait in too long! And never thought to combine a smoothie with oats. Yum.

Love the overflowing glass. Makes me want to eat it even more.

That looks both delicious and beautiful!
I'd love one of those for breakfast, oats in smoothies are so yummy!

Diana @ VeggieNextDoor said... [reply]

This is beautiful! And what a fun idea. I added oats to my smoothie the other day, but never thought of making a layered parfait of smoothie & oatmeal. How funtastically fruity!
