What other ingredients can I add to my breakfast yogurt?
Fruit and granola? That gets boring if you have it pretty often, especially if you eat it on the weekends as well.
I get so bored of adding the same fruits all the time, so I went full-on research mode and stalked hundreds of interesting yogurt combinations that are better than just blueberries and yogurt. Here are some of my favourites.
Idea #1: Yogurt Apple Pie
The guilt-free version of an apple pie. Create a cute dessert by adding it to mini cups of tart shells (you can get them at Phoon Huat!)
Ingredients: Yogurt, ground cinnamon, chopped apples, a sprinkle of raw sunflower seeds
Effort level: Easy
Idea #2: Matcha Kiwi Yogurt
I’m an incredibly huge fan of anything Matcha, Matcha yogurt, cookies, cake, granola… you name it and I’m there. If you’re not a Matcha lover, you can also create any flavoured yogurt – just mix the desired powder with your yogurt. I’ve yet to try curry flavoured yogurt though.
Ingredients: Yogurt mixed with Matcha powder, pounded peanuts, kiwis, a sprinkle of Matcha powder
(Optional: top it off with some peanut pretzel muddy bites for the perfect finishing touch to complete your snack)
Effort level: Easy
Idea #3: Superfood Combination With a Hint of Chocolate
On days I know I’m not going to be getting much greens, I try to make it a point to stuff myself with antioxidants and fibre from non-greeny sources. I absolutely love cacao nibs because it’s chocolate without all the sugary stuff added. It’s 70% cocoa solids and high in antioxidants.
Ingredients: Yogurt, Chia Seeds, Coconut Flakes, Cacao Nibs
Effort level: Super Easy (no cutting required)Get the recipe!
Idea #4: Granola & Dried Berries
When I’m pressed for time, I’ll get a small cup of yogurt from 7-11 and mix granola with some dried berries for a quick breakfast.
Ingredients: Yogurt, granola, berry nut mix
Effort level: Huh? What effort
Idea #5: Ultimate Yogurt and Fruit Cake
Why pay $7 for a cup of frozen yogurt when you can easily create your own gigantic version? You’ll have so much more fun making it with your friends! Ideal snack after a workout, during a sleepover or it could even be an unconventional birthday cake!
Ingredients: Yogurt, colourful berries for aesthetic purposes (e.g.: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries), granola
Effort level: Easiest party food to prepare (Bonus: it's a healthier choice too!)How to stack them up nicely
Idea #6: Yogurt In Granola Cups
It’s a lazy Sunday morning, I’m hungry but I don’t want to have oatmeal or yogurt for the thousandth time and I'm too slothful to head out for food. Well, this saved my life. I had some spare oats, honey and bananas at home so I decided to try this really simple and healthy recipe!
Ingredients: Yogurt, Fruits, Yogurt Cups (mashed banana, honey, rolled oats, vanilla extract)
Effort level: Some effort required to mix the ingredients and pour them into muffin cups)Get the recipe!
Idea #7: Peanut Butter & Banana Yogurt
No, it’s totally not weird to add peanut butter to your yogurt. For a healthier choice, consider using 100% pure peanut butter with no added sugar or palm oil. I stumbled upon this when I didn’t have bread at home, tastes yummy but it's phenomenal when you top it off with some of these. If you're not a fan of peanut butter, almond butter works great too :)
Ingredients: Yogurt, Bananas, Peanut Butter
Effort level: Really easy
