Dessert for breakfast with this Tropical Superfruit Yogurt Parfait, an easy way to detox that tastes delicious!

I feel like I could kick myself in the tush right now.

Do you ever feel like you just waste time?

Time is precious. After all when we can’t do something or don’t WANT to do something, our excuse to ‘get out of it’ is ‘I don’t know if I have the time.’ So clearly that means we value it.

So why do we waste it?

Usually the only time I have to work on the blog is during little man’s nap time (which is anywhere from 1.5 -3 hours) and at night after little man goes to bed for the night (so another 1-3 hours before I go to bed.)

The reason I am kicking myself is because I allow myself to get distracted.

Instead of sitting down, no noise, at my desk and working. I will sit down on our couch with the tv on. Stupid tv! And its not even good stuff, its mindless stuff that I don’t have any interest in watching anyways but then because its on, I will watch it because I am sitting there. Which means 1.5 hours goes by and instead of knocking a couple of items off my “to do” list, I have barely knocked off one item!

It got me thinking. Why do we need noise on in the background? To have the TV on, the radio on, my phone beeping from social media notifications, the list goes on. Why aren’t we ok with silence? Even in a conversation, if there is silence for a period of time we feel like we need to blurt out and say something or its going to be “awkward.” Awkward for who? You?

Silence is where we can collect our thoughts, where the ‘magic happens’, where all the noise we have been hearing throughout the day is turned off and we can rest. Silence is where God speaks. If we have the dishwasher, the washing machine, and the tv on; how are we suppose to hear God’s voice more less our own?

Or in my case how am I suppose to sit down and write a post with clarity if I have all these all things on? I’m not! I need to slow down and declutter the noise in my house. I need to be ok with silence.

Ok, so on to the recipe for today. Tropical Superfruit Yogurt Parfait, intriguing title yes?

Why Superfruit? Because the fruits in this dish, while few, are packed a big nutrient punch … call them ‘super’ if you will. Mangoes alone give you your daily dose of vitamin C for the day as well as help with digestion (aka loads of fiber). Add in the blueberries which are filled with antioxidants and pineapple that have Vitamin b-6 and Folate and you have yourself a Tropical Superfruit Yogurt Parfait!!

Ok, so I know that all that yummy vitamin talk is just making your mouth salivate right now, huh. How about the fact that you can make this amazing parfait in just 5 minutes? The sweetness from the pineapple, spiciness from the mango, berry punch from the blueberry, and creaminess from the vanilla greek yogurt is the perfect concoction to take you straight to Hawaii and back in just 10 minutes. Oh… don’t forget toasted coconut too, because what kinda island doesn’t have coconut.

Anyways, I hope you try this parfait. I know it tastes awesome, but the health benefits and ease just means you have no excuse. So go make it and satisfy that tropical fever in the dead of winter! Your welcome!

  1. I waste time way too often and always kick myself for it. And I totally agree about the silence. There will be times that I’m driving in the car, listening to a song I don’t like on the radio. I finally realize that I can just turn it off…and oh, how I love that silence! This parfait looks wonderful! I have been craving tropical flavors and I have a feeling this would curb my craving.

    1. I can totally relate to the car thing, I’ve learned to just turn it off at times. Its so much better in silence, peaceful, unless your in traffic … then by all means rock out to katy perry haha!

      So glad you liked the parfaits dara, means alot coming from you! 🙂

    1. Thanks Meagan! 🙂

      I like it too, but sometimes it just distracts me and it takes WAY longer for me to do something. But sometimes I get inspired by something i heard or saw and will go nuts writing. Just depends on mode I’m in. 🙂

  2. I am the biggest time waster ever. Every single thing distracts me from getting things done. Most of the time during the day I keep it completely quiet…no music, no tv, no dishwasher. Of course then it is social media that gets me off focus! I definitely need to work at it more…I know God will reward my diligence if I ask and do it! Thanks for the great reminder to be still and listen! And this fruit parfait…YUM!!!!

    1. haha… i’m right there with ya on the social media distraction. I need to close out of all browsers to stay focused on editing & writing or what not. 🙂 Glad I’m not the only one. 🙂

      So glad to hear that this post encouraged you AND made you hungry for parfait hehe

  3. I did this exact thing yesterday! I read my book instead of working. And whats funny is I have the tv on right now while I am writing this to you! 😉 I have to have back ground music/sound too. Don’t know why but I gotta. Can you believe I have never made a parfait. I need to jump on that bandwagon now. This looks delicious! Pinned!

  4. Oh my gosh yes, so true. I am doing it now, sitting in front of the TV trying to get some blogging done but instead I only got one post written and trying to catch up on blog reading in three hours. It’s insane. I just need to sit at my desk and will probably only need an hour and a half to work and I can actually spend quality time with my husband. Anyways…this is just a beautiful recipe! Need to add to my breakfast list!

    1. hahaha… right! Gosh, I need to stop … actually i have since I wrote this post. Kinda feel like I need to do what i’m “preaching” ya know. 🙂

      So pumped you liked this parfait recipe girl, its so perfect for the morning.
