This breakfast yogurt parfait with quinoa is a healthy and delicious way to kick start your day. Made with sweet mango, sharp ginger preserve and a dash of cinnamon, it is low in fat, big on protein and flavour!
Combine the cubed mango with the ginger preserve and stir thoroughly.
Combine the cinnamon with either the yogurt or quinoa. Stir thoroughly.
Use a tall glass/jar to make the parfait. Use 2-3 tablespoons of the quinoa, top with the mango mixture, then 2-3 tablespoons of the yogurt. Repeat the sequence. Enjoy!
Use ripe but firm mango.
You could add toasted seeds and/or crushed nuts or homemade chocolate granola to your layers or scatter them on top. You could replace the ginger preserve with lemon curd or marmalade.
Cook the quinoa ahead (according to packet instructions) and once cooled refrigerate (for up to 3 days) until you are ready to put the recipe together. Quinoa will stay fluffy even after it's been in the fridge for a while, just give it a good stir before you use it.
