One of the fun things that I did with the Tillamook Light Yogurt I got was to create a delicious Rainbow Yogurt Parfait with Toasted Quinoa. I pulled out the different flavors of yogurt I received and picked one flavor for each layer:

I spooned a little bit of each flavor carefully into the dish creating a layered look. Which turned out lovely and fun!

I then added the Toasted Quinoa on top which added a little bit more protein and a yummy crunch to this treat. Even Zane loved the toasted Quinoa, which he is the pickiest little one ever!

This keeps pretty well in the fridge so if you want to make it the night before for an amazing breakfast! That’s what I did.
