I received a complimentary stay at Coral Springs Resort in order to facilitate this post, all opinions are my own.
This berry compote parfait is sure to be a big hit! Chia berry compote layered with yogurt and a chia almond granola, as well as ripe, fresh, berries. This is a fun breakfast, a nutritious snack, and an excellent source of protein.

A few weekends ago I got the privilege of visiting the beautiful Coral Springs resort in Southern Utah. I gathered with a group of other bloggers, and we spent a weekend eating, laughing, and learning from one another.
Coral Springs was the perfect location because it offers big condos that are spacious enough for us to spread out, but cozy enough for a fun, intimate gathering of like minded friends. We all got our own comfortable beds, and there were large, beautiful bathrooms, and my favorite part–equipped kitchens, dining spaces, and patio grills, which made eating (my favorite past time) easy and fun! And with a Smith’s grocery store only 10 minutes away, it did not take us long to stock our fridge and pantry for our stay.
I brought my kids with me, and they loved that there was a room with 2 queen sized bunk beds (4 bed), because it meant they all got to have their own bed, with plenty of space to spread out, while still being together. There was a television in that room, so when I was ready for bed, I just sent them in, turned on a movie, and that was that. I am considering this rooming situation at home. But seriously, it was awesome. These condos would be great for a family reunion.

We enjoyed visiting nearby locations, and eating at some of the local restaurants. My favorite was Benja’s a Thai place in downtown St. George. But we also loved cooking and eating at the resort. We grilled. We baked. We boiled. We fried. The fully equipped kitchens were well-used. One morning we kept things simple with a parfait bar. We had different types of yogurt: Greek and Regular. And then tons of fresh fruits, berries, nuts, and other mix-ins. My kids loved it, especially the element of choice, and so did all the bloggers. Sometimes the simplest breakfast ideas are the best. Which is why I wanted to share this recipe for a yummy berry compote that is perfect for layering into a breakfast yogurt parfait.
If you are going to have a yogurt parfait bar, this berry compote should be part of the offerings. It has fresh berries, chia seed, and more! It is flavorful, but super easy to make, and a real crowd pleaser.
Trust me, this is the kind of breakfast you could dig into, maybe poolside at Coral Springs. Did I mention all the fun things to do on property? Not only is Coral Springs located close to the beautiful Zion National Park, it also has plenty to do right at the resort. Like swim, play tennis, play basketball, enjoy a good workout, etc. I particularly loved that there was an indoor and outdoor pool, because sometimes it is nice to not stress over sunscreen, and just let the kids have fun inside!
So whether you sit poolside, or on the patio and enjoy the views, or relax inside, make and enjoy these berry compote parfaits. They don’t even have to be a breakfast or snack, they work equally well as a dessert!
No matter where or how you eat it, trust me this is one meal or snack you can’t go wrong with! I mean who doesn’t love a good berry compote parfait?
So go ahead, dig in, this berry compote parfait is a real crowd pleaser. And if you get the chance to head to Southern Utah, take time to check out Coral Springs Resort and all it has to offer. When I visited I rented a Redbox for my kids, and forgot it in the room. I was so mad at myself. I texted the resort manager, and not only did he go and find it for me, but he returned it as well. That is awesome customer service!
