Yogurt, Berry and Granola Trifle

We are definitely in throes of growth spurts with the two older boys (almost 6 and almost 8), and it seems like they never stop eating! I seriously believe I will need a separate job just to fund our grocery bill when they get to be teenagers! Since they eat non-stop and I don’t always want them raiding the pantry for snack foods, I am trying to find some other snacks I can make ahead. This yogurt, berry and granola breakfast trifle fits the bill!

I have sort of a love affair with trifles. Maybe it’s the trifle dishes (this is my all-time favorite trifle dish) or how easy they are to make (and they look complicated!), whatever it is, I love ’em! I usually make dessert trifles, but I decided to think outside the box and make this breakfast trifle. I think I’m onto something…

It looks beautiful, but definitely doesn’t take long to prepare. Here’s how to make it:

    • I think the granola might get a little soggy, so if you’re serving it for guests I would do it the morning of. That being said, my kids didn’t mind it after it had been in the fridge for a day! 🙂
