Wine Glasses at Breakfast?

Happy Monday!  Hope you’ve all gotten your morning off to a great start…I know I did!  I just finished a nice interval run on the treadmill, covering just shy of 4 miles.  It was a blisteringly hot glorious run. ;)  I’m sure you can imagine, with the amount of humidity that we have in the air right now, that by the time I was done, I pretty much looked like I had just gone for a swim – yowzas! :shock:  So breakfast had 2 requirements:

- no baking/cooking involved

-must be COLD

Now, Monday’s usually require a little “somethin’ extra”, right?  Something to get your week started off on the right foot?  Well, I figured, why not start my morning off with a little breakfast out of a wine glass! ;)

It was a breakfast fit for royalty (or even for a hot sweaty Courtney, either way, it works)!  I used Julie’s breakfast parfait from last week for my inspiration, and it surely did not disappoint.  I mixed up a batch of strawberry banana “soft serve” (which I’m now addicted to and need to go freeze more bananas…), and layered it up with a Chobani honey flavored yogurt, and some fresh blueberries.

To make the “soft serve”, all I did was put 1 frozen, sliced banana into the blender with a handful of frozen strawberries, and some cold water.  I let it mingle for a while to get to my desired consistency, and voila - soft serve!  I’m definitely going to be experimenting with some more flavors soon. :)

Looks like I need to work on my layering skills…I think next time I’ll use a white wine glass instead of red – they’re too fat to layer nicely! ;)

My parfait was absolutely perfect – cool, creamy, and not to mention, kinda fancy! :-D

So while I was running this morning, I got an idea for a future “Fashion Friday” post that I think you guys might enjoy!  I’m really excited about it, but I still have to work out some of the details, so make sure to check back later today and I’ll give ya’ll the scoop!

Random Question for the Morning:

What’s your favorite fruit?

This one’s hard for me because I love ALL fruit – but if I could only pick one, I’d probably say bananas, just because they’re so versatile and can be used in so much (like SOFT SERVE!) ;)
