Chilled Strawberry & Banana Parfait

Posted on

I was in the mood for a parfait for breakfast last week and I realized I haven’t made one in a very long time. What I like about parfaits is the fact you can layer your glass with almost anything you want: grains of your choice, fruit, nuts, seeds, cranberries, raisins, almond butter, etc. Those are some of my favorite foods! Also, who doesn’t like to eat out of a fancy glass at 7 in the morning? Unfortunately, it’s not filled with wine but the parfait still comes in a close second in my book.

How about you? When you make a parfait, what are your favorite goodies to go inside the glass? 

Chilled Strawberry & Banana Parfait


  • 1/4 cup cooked buckwheat groats
  • 2 tsp natural peanut butter (almond butter would work, too)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1 Tbsp light cream (half and half would work, too)
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds


  1. Mix groats and natural peanut butter together in small dish.
  2. Place groats in bottom of parfait/wine glass.
  3. In food processor, mix together strawberries and cream.
  4. Layer on top of groats.
  5. In food processor, place frozen banana and process until smooth.
  6. Place banana soft serve on top of strawberries.
  7. Sprinkle with hemp seeds.
  8. ENJOY!
