If you’re always scrambling out the door in the mornings, you’re in luck. Each of these beautifully layered overnight oats can be made in advance -- saving you precious morning time. Bursting with flavors and textures, these parfaits feature ingredients you can easily mix and match. And adding yogurt or nut milk increases protein and calcium. Feel free to throw some nuts or seeds on top as well. The oats hold up well in the fridge for several days, so you can even double or triple the recipes. Don’t have fresh fruit on hand? Frozen fruits work equally well. These parfaits are seriously so easy (and delicious!), you just might look forward to getting out of bed.
STRAWBERRY AND PEACH OAT PARFAIT
This breakfast parfait bursts with vibrant strawberries and peaches, which are high in vitamins C and A. Feel free to use frozen fruits if you can’t find fresh ones. The mildly sweet honey blends beautifully with the creamy milk.

VANILLA, STRAWBERRY AND FIG PARFAIT

TROPICAL FRUIT AND QUINOA PARFAIT
Use precut frozen fruit for an easy-to-prep parfait that bursts with flavor. Quinoa is a complete protein, and pairing it with your favorite milk makes for a very satisfying cold cereal. Both pineapple and papaya aids in digestion, and their enzymes help to create the creamy, sweet texture of this parfait.

CACAO AND VANILLA OAT PARFAIT
Though cacao and vanilla sound like dessert delicacies, this breakfast is healthy enough to wake up to. The combination of high-antioxidant cacao and potassium-rich banana make this a sweet breakfast that’ll keep you energized. It’s also a delicious way to get picky eaters to start the morning with something nutritious.

APPLE PIE OAT PARFAIT
Wake up to the sweet aromas of apple pie. Apples contain both malic and tartaric acids, which can help with digestion. High in fiber and low in sugar, this parfait gets most of its sweetness from the apple juice. Ginger and cinnamon give this recipe warm notes of apple pie. Top with a dollop of vanilla yogurt for an a la mode effect.

BLUEBERRY, BANANA AND ORANGE OAT PARFAIT
Frozen banana turns into creamy soft-serve when blended, which is what gives this parfait its smooth texture -- without the addition of yogurt. Fresh orange juice and blueberries add brightness and immunity-boosting vitamin C. This parfait is filling enough to leave you satisfied until lunchtime.
