If you were a fan of my original Cinnamon Apple Pie Quinoa Parfait, then you will love this variation as well. This protein packed treat is ultra convenient and easy to make, store, grab, and eat!

Quinoa, Grape, & Sunflower Seed Parfait

Serves 1

1 cup frozen green seedless grapes
6oz or a single serve cup of plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2 cup cooked chilled quinoa
2 Tbsp sunflower seeds
cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to taste

Cook quinoa and refrigerate beforehand. Cut frozen grapes into halves. In a glass jar, layer half of the yogurt along the bottom, followed by half of the quinoa, sunflower seeds, and frozen grapes. Sprinkle grapes with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. Repeat layers to create a parfait and store in the refrigerator or eat right away.
Note: If you don’t like the tartness of Greek yogurt, you can mix a 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract and natural sweetener such as stevia to give more flavor.
