Celebrate Good Nutrition in the Morning: YogurtZ n Oats Parfaits
Our parfaits are made with milk and GoGo squeeZ® squeezable yogurt pouches so each serving contains protein, calcium and vitamin D punch. These are nutrients that your kids may be missing out on – they’re vital for building muscle and strong bones. And when you pair our YogurtZ pouches with additional kid-friendly ingredients – like fruit and oatmeal and serve them sundae-style – it makes for a breakfast that they won’t want to skip!
Recipe variation: If your kids are a little more adventurous, swap in quinoa for the oats. Rinse 3/4 cup quinoa and bring to a boil with milk and cinnamon. Cook for 20 minutes and let set 5 minutes before using in parfaits.

GoGo squeeZ® YogurtZ BerryDetail
Add oatmeal, milk and cinnamon to a medium sized pot. Bring to a boil and then turn down to medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
In two parfait or tall glasses, create the parfaits by layering ingredients. Add ½ cup of cooked oatmeal to the bottom of each glass.
Divide one YogurtZ pouch over the oatmeal in each glass. Layer about 1/3 cup berries over the YogurtZ layer in each glass.
Repeat layers with remaining ingredients (ending with berry layer.) If desired, add fresh mint leaves on top.
*If using frozen berries, add to a small pot. Cook over medium heat until berries are thawed and warmed through.
