Fall Focus Reset: Day 13

Adaptogenic Matcha Yogurt Parfait with JOYÀ Focus Matcha Superblend

Adaptogenic Yogurt + Granola Parfait

(Defend Superblend or Focus Superblend)

Serves 1 • Paleo / Grain + Gluten-free / Vegan + Dairy-free optional / Caffeine-free (Defend Superblend version)

Layers on layers on layers. And every layer brings loads of flavor, nutrients and textures to this parfait party. Creamy yogurt is powered by your choice of Focus or Defend Superblend. Crunchy grain-free granola packs in fiber and protein-rich nuts and seeds. And the toppings… well, that’s up to you (but some juicy fruit is highly recommended). 

The granola will need 25 minutes in the oven – the perfect amount of time to assemble your other ingredients and sip your Saturday morning brew.


For the yogurt + serving:

  • ¾ cup plain or vanilla yogurt (dairy-free or dairy)
  • 1 serving (1.5 tsp) JOYÀ Focus OR Defend Superblend
  • optional: 1 scoop collagen powder and/or protein powder* 
  • topping ideas: berries, bananas, hemp seeds, chopped chocolate, bee pollen

Notes * Use plain or vanilla protein powder, or chocolate for a chocolatey flavor if using Defend Superblend.

For the granola (makes 1 cup (2 servings):

  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup crushed pecans
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or other natural liquid sweetener)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or ghee, melted
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon 
  • ⅛ tsp sea salt
  • water, as needed

How to

  1. Make the granola: preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients (except water) in a bowl. If the mixture doesn’t stick together at all, add a bit of water, 1 tsp at a time.
  3. Transfer mixture to the baking sheet and press into a ½-inch thick layer. 
  4. Bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown and crispy.
  5. Remove from the oven, break up the granola into large chunks, and bake for another 5 minutes.
  6. Cool, and store in an airtight container. 
  7. Assemble and serve: in a small bowl or 2-cup glass jar, combine yogurt, Focus or Defend Superblend, and collagen/protein powder if using, and mix to combine. Top with ½ cup granola, followed by toppings of your choice. Enjoy!
