A simple no-bake pudding turned into a parfait that's perfect for breakfast: it's just white bread, berries, and yogurt.

  • Yield:serves 4
  • Active time: 10 minutes
  • Total time:overnight


  • About 8 slices white bread such as Wonder Bread
  • 1 pound strawberries, sliced
  • 6 ounces raspberries
  • 6 ounces blackberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Greek yogurt, optional


  1. 1.

    Cut crust off bread and cut bread into circles to fit your parfait glass. Place 1 piece bread in bottom of each glass.

  2. 2.

    In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine all berries, sugar, and water. Heat, stirring occasionally until juices are released, about 4 minutes. Spoon some fruit into each glass, covering bread. Add another layer of bread, then top it with remaining fruit. Cover glasses with plastic wrap, place into refrigerator and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.

  3. 3.

    Serve parfaits chilled with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top if desired.
