As we all know, Mother’s Day is right around the corner and every Mother in your life deserves a little bit of “spoiling”. To start the day, a little breakfast in bed would be nice, right? Here is a recipe that wouldn’t necessarily need the help of Mom!
Let the kids help Dad or have the older kids layer these healthy parfaits into pretty cups. Assemble them the night before so you can surprise Mom with breakfast in bed as soon as she wakes up.
1 cup fat-free milk
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup dry whole-wheat couscous
1 package (12 ounces) frozen mixed berries
2 containers (6 ounces) vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup low-fat granola
1. In a small saucepan, bring milk and salt just to boiling. Stir in couscous. Remove from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
2. Divide couscous among six 8-ounce plastic cups (or to-go containers with lids). Top each with frozen berries and yogurt. Cover and chill overnight. Top with granola before serving.
