First important meal of the day
Breakfast is one of the first important meal of the day which sets the tone for the entire day and it’s one my favourite meal of the day too and I always look forward for it. This time I have created a new quick recipe which is super delicious, very refreshing and have named it as Cinnamon Strawberry Breakfast Parfaits. It takes less than 10 minutes to make it. Isn’t amazing?
These healthy parfaits are a perfect treat for the little ones and for the family.
We have been out yesterday with friends and picked up fresh Danish strawberries from the strawberry bushes. I was so mesmerized with the luscious red colour, juiciness of the strawberries, it was extremely sweet, couldn’t stop eating them while picking them up. We all had a fabulous time and kids were so excited with this fun activity. Have used the same fresh strawberries for this recipe.
While picking the fresh strawberries, one has to be careful, sometimes it has small holes, eaten by small animals or snails.
Strawberries are so tempting and delicious which also has health benefits. Usually when we eat strawberries, we don’t think about the health benefits so often, we just eat it. On a common note, we all know that it is good for health, packed with antioxidants and are highly perishable.
Outlining here few other health benefits too –
- Anti- aging due to high in Vitamin C
- Reduces inflammation

- Good for the teeth whitening
- High in antioxidants
- Good source of folic acid
- Good source of fibre
- Anti- acne

Wash the fresh strawberries, add them in a blender with dates and milk , blitz it for few seconds, until it blends well.
Put a pan on a stove , add water, let it become lukewarm, add oats and blend together, when it cooked , it takes few minutes to cook , take it off from the stove and add milk in it and prepare to layer it all together.
Now pour equal portion of strawberry mixture in 2 glasses, add oats on the top of the strawberry mixture as 2nd layer and now add honey or maple syrup on top of the oats in each glasses , divide the cinnamon powder on top of the oats in both the glasses and garnish it with fresh strawberries and serve.
Frozen strawberries can be used but then 1st layer will be too cold.
