We're big on parfaits here at HG, as you may have noticed. But these OATMEAL parfaits are completely new, and we are totally in LOVE. Each one is huge, beauteous, and delicious! Try these ASAP if you're in the market for a few new BFFs...




HG Tip!
For these chilly parfaits, the oatmeal needs at least 1 1/2 hours of fridge time. We like to make the oatmeal (the first part of the recipe's directions) and refrigerate it overnight -- then just assemble the parfait the next morning!

We had a soiree with two types of fruit, sweet vanilla yogurt, and thick-n-creamy oats. Eat our party, people!!!

Ingredients:

Oatmeal
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract
Dash salt 

Parfait
1/2 cup fat-free vanilla yogurt with about 100 calories per 6-oz. serving
1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 banana, sliced

Directions:
Combine all ingredients for oatmeal in a small nonstick pot on the stove. Add 3/4 cup water and mix well. Bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 9 minutes, stirring often, until somewhat thick and creamy. (It will thicken more upon chilling.) Allow to cool slightly. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 1/2 hours.

Stir oatmeal thoroughly until uniform in texture. Spoon half of the oatmeal into a tall glass, and top with 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/4 cup sliced strawberries, and half of the banana slices. Repeat with remaining oatmeal, yogurt, strawberries, and banana.

Serve and enjoy!
