Healthy Six-Layer Breakfast Trifle
Every year, my mother-in-law makes trifles for friends and family. Since they are pretty much dairy and gluten bombs, it isn’t a tradition that Tony and I can partake. This really is a blessing in disguise, since the layers of fat and sugar in a traditional English trifle aren’t exactly nutritious. But, this healthy breakfast trifle recipe is one that we can easily enjoy without all of the guilt.
Special Diet Notes & Options: Healthy Breakfast Trifle
This healthy breakfast trifle is easily vegan, vegetarian, dairy-free / non-dairy, gluten-free, egg-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free and soy-free - just keep an eye on the yogurt, granola and cereal that you use.
In terms of store-bought options, low sugar dairy-free yogurt can be hard to come by. Whole Soy & Co and Wildwood offer unsweetened soy-based yogurts. If soy-free is required, try So Delicious Almond or Greek-Style Coconut yogurts, which are lower in sugar than most, while still providing some sweetness.
If coconut isn’t your cup of tea, use sliced almonds instead, or simply omit for a 5-layer breakfast trifle. And don’t forget that other fruit or melon can be used once watermelon season has passed.
