These Greek yogurt parfaits are filled with strawberries, blueberries, and of course delicious California Avocados. These parfaits are high fiber, probiotic, and look so pretty layered in a mason jar for super-easy meal prep. The crispy chickpeas add a great crunch, extra protein, and extra fiber. What a fantastic way to start your day. Note: you can make these ahead of time, just keep the chickpeas loosely covered at room temperature until you are ready to eat them.

Serves: 4

1/4 cup honey 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 1 cup sliced strawberries 1 cup blueberries 32 oz. Greek yogurt, plain 1 ripe, fresh California Avocado, quartered, peeled, seeded and diced 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  1. In a medium sized bowl, warm the honey and cinnamon in the microwave for about 20 seconds. It should be liquid, but not too hot. If it is very hot, allow it to cool slightly before adding the avocados, strawberries, and blueberries and gently tossing to coat the fruit.
  2. Using an 8-oz. jar, layer ⅓ cup of yogurt in a glass jar, add a couple of tablespoons of the fruit, top with another ⅓ cup of yogurt, followed by a bit more fruit, add another ⅓ cup of yogurt. Add a quarter of the avocado and top with a quarter of the walnuts. Repeat with three more jars.

Serving Suggestion: Sprinkle with cinnamon and a drizzle of honey before topping with chickpeas.

Beverage Pairing: Warm tea with honey.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
