This could not be easier to prepare, and makes a lovely offering on the breakfast bar. Alternately layering a good quality yogurt with granola (preferably homemade), and seasonal fruit and berries, in a beautiful stemless wine glass or an old-fashioned parfait glass is sure to please. These breakfast parfaits can be assembled a couple of hours ahead of serving and refrigerated until you need them. Be sure when serving, to have your parfait placed on a small plate so that there is a place to rest the spoon between bites. A garnish of a fresh mint sprig will make each picture-perfect.
