Peach-Strawberry Morning Parfait

Start your day off with more fruits, how about some delicious peaches and strawberries? 4 to 5 fruits a day, is what is recommended, this has two great fruits to start your morning off just right! We will be eating lots and lots of fruit on our 7 week SHRINKVIVOR diet and getting a few out of the way first thing in the morning is key to a successful "FRUIT" day!

Breakfast Morning Parfait

1/4 cup  raisins
1  tsp finely shredded orange peel (set aside)
2  Tbsp  orange juice
1  tsp  vanilla
4 oz pkg reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened (we used regular cream cheese)
1  tbsp  sugar
2  cups fresh raspberries, blueberries, sliced strawberries, and/or cut-up peaches
1/2 cup low-fat granola
Honey (optional)
Shredded orange peel (optional)

In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine raisins and orange juice. Cover and microwave for 30 to 45 seconds; let stand 1 minute to plump raisins. Stir in vanilla; set aside.
In a medium bowl combine cream cheese and sugar; beat with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until smooth. Stir in raisin mixture and the 1 tsp. orange peel.
In four tall glasses/bowls layer half the cream cheese mixture, half the fruit, and half the granola. Repeat layers. Drizzle with honey and top with additional orange peel (we skipped this step). Makes 4 servings.
