BREAKFAST PARFAIT

1 tsp finely grated orange zest
2 tbsp orange juice
1/4 cups raisins
1 tsp vanilla extract
4-oz Neufchatel cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup granola
honey, optional

In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the orange juice and raisins. Cover; microwave on high for 30 to 34 seconds (depending on microwave). Let raisins set for a minute to plump. Stir in the vanilla extract and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl combine the Neufchatel cheese and sugar and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Stir in the raisins and the orange zest.

In four tall dessert glasses, divide half of the cream cheese mixture; top with half the berries and half the granola. Repeat the layers. Drizzle a little honey over the top, if desired.
