A light and fruity make ahead breakfast packed with cherries, quinoa, yoghurt and almond butter the perfect start to the day.


- Cherries - Maple syrup - Water

In a small pan (I use a small frying pan) combine the frozen cherries, maple syrup and water. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently and squashing the cherries down a little, until syrupy.


In a medium bowl, stir together the cooked quinoa, yoghurt, maple syrup and vanilla powder/extract.


In two jars, layer up your parfaits. Start with ¼ of the quinoa yoghurt mixture in each jar, followed by a couple of teaspoons of almond butter. Layer ¼ of the cherries into each jar.


Repeat with the remaining quinoa yoghurt mixture, almond butter and cherries. Top each jar with 1 tablespoon of toasted flaked almonds and dig in!
