Candy Corn Fruit Parfaits
This is a fun and festive breakfast idea for the fall season - especially around Halloween. Itís ultra-fast to prepare and a healthy way to start the day. Fresh fruit could definitely be used in place of the canned fruit. Plus, thereís a number of alternate fruits you could use to achieve the candy corn colors of yellow and deep orange. Thereís a few suggestions below. (This recipe was tested and photographed in October 2014.)
- 1 can (11 ounce) mandarin oranges
1 can (20 ounce) pineapple chunks
2 6-ounce containers of low-fat vanilla yogurt
candy corn pieces - for garnish
How To Make Candy Corn Fruit Parfaits
Depending on the size of your glasses, this make 2 to 4 parfaits.
Drain the juice from both cans of fruit.
Layer 1/3 of each glass with pineapple pieces, followed by an equal layer of mandarin oranges. Top each serving with a generous dollop of vanilla yogurt and a decorative piece of candy corn.
For the yellow layer, you could also use bananas, peaches yellow apples, pears or an exotic yellow sapote.
For the orange layer, consider using tangerines, watermelon, apricots, mango, cantaloupe, nectarines or papaya.
In place of yogurt, you could try whipped cream or even vanilla pudding.
It might look like Halloween candy, but it's a deceptively healthy, fruity breakfast treat. Great for kids.
