Here is my Kids SIS (simple is smart) method for making a healthy, fun, easy, and delicious breakfast your kids will actually want to eat. These unicorn breakfast parfaits don’t have to be limited to breakfast. Serve them for lunch, for a snack, or even for a healthy treat at a birthday party.  

If the colors are “scary” go natural with blueberry yogurt, strawberry yogurt, and vanilla yogurt. They won’t be as vibrant, but the kiddos will still love them.

What do your kiddos need to make this unicorn breakfast parfait?

The ingredients for this are simple, and all of them can be purchased at the grocery store.  However, if you prefer homemade granola, here is a fabulous recipe. Click here. I use stabilized whipped cream on these parfaits.  The whipped cream topping will hold its share overnight.  If your kids prefer the granola softer, make the parfait the night before and use the stabilized whipped cream. Or add the commercial whipped cream just before serving. 

The other ingredients are a thick greek vanilla yogurt and the decorations.  Don’t forget the food coloring.  

How to make the Unicorn Breakfast Parfaits

  1. Color the yogurt your favorite unicorn colors; pink, purple, teal, or blue.
  2. Then start with one yogurt and add a layer to the bottom of a 5-ounce plastic parfait glass. 
  3. Alternate yogurt with the granola and end with yogurt.

Decorate the Unicorn Breakfast Parfait

Top your adorable parfait with stabilized whipped cream or if you prefer, keep it easy and use the store-purchased whipped cream.  The kiddos won’t know the difference.  Add some magic unicorn dust (aka sprinkles).  The grand finale is a white chocolate unicorn horn colored gold and some cute unicorn ears.  The ears are a mini marshmallow cut on the diagonal. 

Make the Unicorn Horns:

To make the unicorn horn, melt some white chocolate in the microwave. Fill a unicorn horn mold with the melted chocolate and let it harden once the chocolate has hardened, color it gold or yellow with a marker that has edible “ink” in it.
