Savory Yogurt and Avocado Parfait

With crispy chickpeas, smashed avocado, fresh veggies herbs and plain yogurt, this savory yogurt parfait is a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds. A delicious snack or breakfast that isn’t too sweet.

Don’t get us wrong, we like a stack of pancakes doused in syrup every once in awhile, but most mornings we don’t have much of a sweet tooth. To satisfy our savory cravings, we created this parfait layered with tomatoes, crispy chickpeas, cucumbers, plain Greek yogurt and Simply Avocado‘s Garlic and Herb flavor. Made by the same geniuses who make the delicious Wholly Guacamole, Simply Avocado takes the waiting game out of unripened avocados.

Instead of squeezing your way through a pile of avocados at the grocery store, Simply Avocado makes it easy to have fresh, smashed avocado ready whenever you need it. This wholesome, 100% avocado spread is perfect for dipping or spreading on a sandwich and comes in a few varieties of fun flavors, Sea Salt, Garlic and Herb, Roasted Red Pepper, Jalapeño Lime and Chunky Avocado. We decided to use Garlic and Herb in this parfait, but any are delicious.

Try these layers with other fun vegetables, cottage cheese instead of yogurt or even a few torn greens at the top to make it more of a salad and perfect for lunch.

Disclosure: We were not compensated for this product, but we did receive free Simply Avocado in order to create the recipe.
