A perfect mix of breakfast flavors in one powerful little cup. So many layers to love: yogurt, chia seeds, quinoa, fresh berries, almonds, cinnamon. Make it the night before and grab some extra zzzzs.

Ingredients

1/4
cup milk
2
containers (6 oz each) Yoplait® Original yogurt French vanilla, strawberry or harvest peach
4
teaspoons chia seed
1
cup cooled cooked quinoa (1/4 cup uncooked)
2
cups fresh fruit (mixed berries or chopped peaches)
1/4
cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds or pecans
1/8
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1 In medium bowl, stir together milk, yogurt and chia seed until blended. Evenly divide mixture among 4 glasses. Spoon 1/4 cup cooled cooked quinoa on top of yogurt layer on each.
  • 2 Top each with a layer of fruit and almonds. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Let stand 5 minutes, or cover and refrigerate overnight.

Expert Tips

Chia seed is a delicious addition to this recipe. It thickens the yogurt mixture and adds a nice crunch.

Quinoa (KEEN-wah) has the highest protein content of all the grains. Its flavor is mild, like that of rice or couscous. Rinse the grain before cooking to remove any lingering traces of its bitter-tasting coating.

To toast almonds or pecans, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
