I discovered this recipe quite by accident last night after dinner. Our recipe called for 1/4 unsweetened plain yogurt. Since I’m frequently cooking for just two people, we usually have odd leftovers of some ingredients. In this case, I still had 3/4 cup plain, boring, unsweetened greek yogurt.
I didn’t want it to go to waste and realized that the same sauce I used on our Mexican-inspired dinner would make a yummy snack if modified just a bit.
Cilantro Lime Parfait for Breakfast
So, it was time to get creative. I wanted something with flavors that complemented our main dish, but creamy to help tone down the heat – and these Cilantro Lime Parfaits were born. This recipe is very high in protein and low in calories. It’s slightly sweet and, when combined with a piece of fruit, this parfait makes a delicious breakfast.
Don’t have time for morning meals? Don’t skip breakfast. Skipping breakfast makes it more likely that you will become hungry later and make poor eating choices. Take 5 minutes to throw this together the night before. Let the flavors meld overnight, and treat yourself to a healthy on-the-go Cilantro Lime Parfait with a powerful protein punch.

It’s a light breakfast for those that don’t want heavy morning meals – but has protein to help get your through your morning.
It does call for fresh cilantro (as opposed to dried coriander). While I love fresh herbs, I hate snipping them. I find it tedious work. So, I broke out my new herb snipping scissors. Have you ever seen anything like this five-blade Chefast scissors?
Have you ever seen anything like this five-blade Chefast scissors? Not that snipping cilantro is all that hard, but we all have our pet peeves, right?
These scissors, which come with a lifetime warranty have easy to grip handles and come with two canvas herb storage bags. Woohoo! I am no longer sealing up my fresh herbs into BPA-infested plastic bags. I hear my basil plants thanking me already. Here is a video I made of these unique kitchen scissors in action.
So, are you ready for that recipe?
