I remember as a kid on Christmas morning it took my parents a Herculean amount of effort to peel us away from the treats in our stockings and get us to eat a half-decent breakfast before our day of gorging ourselves on candy and chocolate. With the promise of that in store, plain cereal or toast just seemed too … BLAH to eat, and we ended up picking at our food and being cranky later on.
This quick dish might tempt even your most stalwart refusers this morning. Pomegranates are in season now and they’re an amazing superfood, full of antioxidants, vitamin C, and a satisfying crunch. The whole thing is just yogurt, pomegranate seeds, and granola, but you can assemble it in seconds and it looks like a fancy treat.
Grab a pretty glass (it is a special occasion after all) and scoop in a bit of granola, followed by some pomegranate seeds. Layer in a bit of yogurt and smooth it so it touches the sides and sort of “seals” in the layer.
Repeat until you get all the way to the top, and garnish with a sprinkling of granola and pomegranate seeds (maybe a sprig of mint if you’ve got it handy).
Scarf it down and have the energy to start your day!
