Breakfast with Friends

Sometimes we ladies just don't get enough chatter at the gym.
So why not extend it over a light breakfast after sweating it off.
I had my friends help me make this quick and easy light breakfast.
Berries and Mangos are in season.
The berries is from a trip to the Berry Farm with my kids and husband.
The Atulfo Mangos,
 I got from a local Asian grocer.
They are juicy and sweet.
Since they all insisted on helping,
while I made the pancakes
I had one of my friends wash the berries,
 and cut the strawberries in halves.
And diced up the mangos.
When she was all done, she mixed all the fruit in a bowl
and garnished it with mint.
I had another friend fill half of each glass with Greek yogurt,
top it with the berries,
and added a spoonful or 2 of granola.
And for those who wanted their parfaits a little sweeter
 they drizzled it with agave.
I usually have eggs after the gym for some protein,
but my friends declined my offer of making omelette.
It's was a beautiful day to eat breakfast in the backyard.
And food is more delicious
when you are sharing it with wonderful friends who care.

For the Parfait:

2 cups plain Greek Yogurt
2 cups fresh berries ( raspberries, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries)
1/2 - 1 cup granola
agave or honey

Laughter is always music to my ears,
and I can never get enough of it when I am around gorgeous friends.
