A few weeks back I got this super-duper invitation to host a healthy breakfast in coworking space where I have my office. They wanted me to organize a breakfast for all the coworkers there – to preach why breakfast is the most important meal of the day, to showcase what I typically eat for breakfast and of course to make some easy HEALTHY breakfast meals for them.

My eyes were literally swamped with happy tears when I got that invite. I waited for this moment my whole life! … Ok I’m overreacting. BUT really… I wanted to do this since I moved there. These people NEEDED these healthy meals. They needed me to show them how delicious and super EASY breakfast can be – to never-ever skip their breakfast again.

I’ve decided to make Strawberry Peanut Butter Smoothie and Blueberry Banana Smoothie. Smoothies are always a good breakfast idea especially for people who are busy. Also, they are the great way to show that healthy breakfast doesn’t have to be complicated nor tedious – but rather tasty, easy and super NUTRITIOUS.

Also, I wanted to make something with crunchy granola and brain/energy boosting peanut butter… something creamy, refreshing and super attractive. So I came up with this Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Parfait cups that are loaded with HEALTHY stuff, super filling and soooo delicious – full of FRESH berry flavor. These cups swept people off their feet. Literally.

These Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt Parfait cups are packed with HEALTHY nutrients – heart-healthy fats, fibers, vitamins, and essential minerals. And by packed I mean chock-full. It’s a true energy blast that will boost your energy, your brain power, and most importantly your health. + It WILL keep you full until lunch.  Believe me!

To make these cups I used Greek yogurt full of proteins in which I mixed creamy peanut butter LOADED with more proteins, monounsaturated fatty acids (healthy fats), fibers, vitamins A and E, calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, potassium, and many other amazing nutrients. I’m overwhelmed with peanut butter health benefits. But most importantly it’s very satisfying.

Layers of creamy peanut butter yogurt mixture are disrupted with crunchy sweet, honey homemade granola. Granola is crumbled right into the yogurt mixture like a delicious dream. The banana slices placed along with granola gave unbelievable texture and natural sweetness.
