PB&J Parfait

I am often amazed by how the most simple of ingredients can combine to make the most delicious flavor.  It is so true for this perfect, nutritious breakfast parfait made from the comforting flavors the child in me still loves... Simply layer in the items noted below and enjoy a quick, healthy start to your day!
YUM!! How deceiving does this look... The kiddos will think you've gone mad when you serve this to them for breakfast!!
What you'll need:
~ Couple fresh strawberries & banana slices (or any fresh fruit you prefer)
~ Banana Yogurt (I chose this flavor as it mixes so well with the PB&J)
~ Organic, CRUNCHY Peanut Butter (seriously, you need the crunch - best part)
~ Organic Strawberry Preserves

All from TJ's ~ Gotta love 'em
Start with the fresh fruit (as shown above), then add a couple tablespoons of the yogurt - on top of that a teaspoon of peanut butter and then a dollop of the preserves.
Repeat above until you reach the top... Note:  Peanut butter works best a room temp.  So if you store in the fridge, scoop out what you need and pop in the microwave for no more than 15 - 20 seconds. 
Special thanks to RD for the inspiration!
