If you are anything like me, you NEED coffee in the morning. I am one of those that " don't have complete sentence structure or much thought" until I have my one cup for the day. I am also the one who will pour coffee in my cereal thinking that it's milk... And if you are also like me and like the occasional chocolate fix I have the PERFECT recipe for you that combines both!
I give you my Coffee Chocolate Fix Parfait!A layered beauty of greek yogurt, coffee grounds, fresh brewed coffee, chia seeds,chopped walnuts, dark chocolate and oats! Its a perfectly balanced breakfast that you can put in your to-go cup and eat when you get to work if your an early bird like me and get to work early!
- 1 cup non fat plain greek yogurt
- 2 tbs chia seeds
- 1 packet of sweetner ( I had Splenda on hand, but I go for Stevia now a days 🙂 )
- ¼ cup fresh brewed coffee
-1 tbs chopped walnuts
- 2 small spoonfuls of coffee grounds
- ¼ cup rolled oats
- dark chocolate chunks ( I used 90% cacao because its healthier and I like very dark chocolate! )
- sprinkle of cinnamon
Gather all ingredients ( ignore the almond milk, I was using that for my 'creamer' in my actual cup of coffee)
In a small bowl combine greek yogurt, chia seeds, sweetener, and cooled coffee ( for that coffee taste throughout)
Next, gather your remaining ingredients for the fun part, layering! Layer your parfait however you like it! I like to start layering in this order: yogurt mixture, oats, cinnamon, walnuts, coffee grounds, and chocolate until I reach the top!
Optional garnishes are sugar free chocolate syrup and fat free whip cream!
Hope you enjoy!!!
