Thank you to Friendship Dairies for sponsoring this post. The recipe and all opinions are my own.
Peach Crisp Parfait, an easy breakfast or snack recipe packed with protein thanks to Friendship Dairies cottage cheese! You can even make it ahead for a quick breakfast throughout the week. This parfait will fill you up and give you lots of energy for the day.
This Peach Crisp Parfait is super easy to make. You can make your own creation with Friendship Dairies cottage cheese, thanks to the Friendship Dairies Superfood Generator. You pick the cottage cheese variety then add 3 superfood mix-ins. You’ll get a summary with all the protein and health benefits.
For my superfood mix-ins I added peaches (Vitamin C), cinnamon (Manganese), and oats (fiber). Then added a few more including coconut sugar (low glycemic index) and walnuts (omega 3 fatty acids). I took all my superfood mix-in ideas and made it into a parfait for an easy breakfast or snack.
If you need more recipe inspiration, check out some of the Friendship Dairies Recipes. Lots of great ideas for bowls, smoothies, and other recipes. Cottage cheese is so versatile and can be mixed with just about anything sweet or savory.
So for my recipe, I started with the 1% milkfat whipped cottage cheese. I love the creamier texture and that a half cup has a whopping 15 grams of protein. Friendship Dairies cottage cheese is The Original Superfood, high in protein, and a good source of long-lasting energy. I don’t know about you, but I need all the energy I can get these days!
Then I took some of my mix-in choices and made a crispy layer for my parfait with oats, walnuts, cinnamon, coconut sugar, and a little butter. I baked it in the oven until golden brown. You can easily make this oat mixture ahead of time and store in a little container or sealable bag in the cupboard.
To add a little spice to my peaches, I added a little cinnamon, coconut sugar, and butter and baked in the oven until the peaches were soft. You could easily make the peaches ahead and store in a covered container in the fridge.
Lastly, I added a little more coconut sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla to the cottage cheese then layered it with the peaches and oat mixture. A healthier alternative to traditional peach crisp!
