Blood Orange And Mango Breakfast Parfaits

Blood Orange And Mango Breakfast Parfaits
Susan Russo for NPR /

These parfaits are ideal for a special breakfast or brunch. They're easy to assemble, versatile and attractive. The contrasting flavors of tart blood oranges and sweet mango blend deliciously in creamy, honeyed Greek yogurt studded with crunchy pistachios, toasted oats and shredded coconut.

Makes 2 servings

2 cups Greek yogurt*

2 tablespoons honey

Zest of 1 blood orange

1/3 cup rolled oats, lightly toasted

1 tablespoon chopped unsalted pistachios

3 tablespoons shredded sweetened coconut, lightly toasted

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 small blood oranges, peeled and sliced into segments

1/2 small mango, peeled and diced

In a medium bowl, whisk Greek yogurt, honey and blood orange zest until well combined.

In a small bowl, combine toasted oats, pistachios, coconut and cinnamon.

In two tall parfait glasses, start with a layer of the yogurt mixture, add a layer of the oat mixture, then add the fresh blood oranges and mango. Repeat. End with a dollop of yogurt, and garnish with a blood orange segment and a sprinkle of pistachios.

*Greek yogurt is an extra thick and creamy yogurt that is widely available at most supermarkets. If you can't get Greek yogurt, place regular plain yogurt in a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. Discard the liquid that has collected in the bowl and enjoy the significantly thicker, creamier yogurt.
