Kiwi Parfait - Breakfast on "K" Day


Well it's breakfast time on "K" day and I'm using KIWIS

I made a Kiwi Breakfast Parfait. Kiwis have just the right amount of sweetness and pair so deliciously with strawberries in this parfait with yogurt and granola. Yummy!




Servings: 1

Ingredients

4 strawberries, sliced or cut up
1 Kiwi, sliced into small pieces
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup Honey Granola
Honey (optional, for sweetness)

Directions

1. In a small cup or dessert cup, start by layering with a couple of Tbsps of yogurt at the bottom. Continue layering with strawberries, followed by yogurt, kiwi, and then granola. Add yogurt again, strawberries, kiwi and granola.

2. Add a drizzle of Honey for added sweetness, if you like.




KIWI

Along with being so pretty looking, kiwis are packed with more Vitamin C than an equivalent amount of an orange. These emerald delights contain numerous phytonutrients as well as well known vitamins and minerals that promote your health. 

In the world of research, scientists are fascinated with kiwifruit for its ability to protect DNA in the nucleus of human cells from oxygen-related damage.

The fiber in kiwifruit has also been shown to be useful for a number of conditions, such as reducing high cholesterol levels, which may reduce the risk of heart disease and heart attack. Fiber-rich foods are also good for keeping the blood sugar levels of diabetics under control.

Eating Vitamin C-rich fruit such as kiwi may offer a significant protective effect against respiratory symptoms associated with asthma such as wheezing.
