Breakfast Parfait

I am always trying to cook with ingredients that are in season, because they taste better.
Grapefruit is in season now, and soo yummy.  I am obsessed.  Rather than just eating them plain, I made up this non traditional yogurt parfait.

There really isn't an exact recipe, but here is how I did it.

Grapefruit Yogurt Parfait
About 1/2 Cup of Non Fat Plain Greek Yogurt
One Whole Grapefruit, Sectioned

To make this, all you do is layer the ingredients in the order as you see above.  The hardest part is sectioning the grapefruit, and if you don't know how take a look at this video.  Once sectioned, I like to squeeze the rest of the juice out of over top.  Depending how sweet your grapefruit is, will determine how much honey you will need.  Usually I just use about a tablespoon.  Omit the cinnamon if you tend to get heartburn, but I like the flavor it adds.  All you need is a sprinkle, and then crush a handful of walnuts over the top.

Just like the banana pancake recipe I posted a couple of weeks ago, you can substitute with any fruit.  I have tried it with oranges, and that is really good too.  Choose fruits that are in season,  and it will always taste better!

Hope you are out enjoying this beautiful Sunday!!
