Grapefruit yogurt parfait is one of my favorite breakfasts especially when it’s topped with homemade granola.
One grapefruit or honey pomelo (if you want to try something different) will make at least 2 good sized servings. Segmenting the grapefruit, which is not difficult at all, is the most time consuming part of this recipe. To save on clean up, I like to segment a couple of grapefruits at a time. I store the extra segments in a sealed container in the fridge for a couple of days. The only danger in doing this is that my lovely family peeps steal and eat my nicely segmented fruit!
You can easily make this recipe to go by putting it in a mason jar or some other sealed container. If you add the granola, it will get a little soft, which I don’t really mind. To avoid this, simply pack the granola separately.
- 1 ruby red grapefruit
- 1/3 cup granola
- 1 cup yogurt (plain or citrus flavor are my favorite)
- Peel and segment the grapefruit.
- Alternate layers of grapefruit, granola and yogurt in parfait glass, martini glass or mason jar.
- Finish with a layer of crunchy granola.
