Some days I want a good breakfast something healthy but tasty, of course! But I do get fed up of the same old bran flakes or muesli or omelette so I started to experiment with yogurt and basically just chuck in whatever I want – extremely simple but you can make it as healthy (or unhealthy) as you like, add things to get certain nutrients or flavours, whatever tickles your fancy on a particular day. I’m going to share two personal favourites of mine.
Vanilla yogurt, seeds, honey, fruit & cereal:
This breakfast I used Onken fat free vanilla biopot yogurt – of course, you can use any yogurt you like. Check labels to make sure there isn’t tons of added sugars.
I then topped it with some fresh blueberries (about 50g), Alpen muesli cereal (20g), natural vanilla seeds (15g) and 0.5-1 tbsp drizzle of pure honey. You can obviously use any type of seeds you like; sunflower would be nice, and any fruit that you currently have in the house.
My other favourite combines two of my favourite flavours, banana and cinnamon:
For this breakie (and one which I ate today, it was very yummy indeed) I used Onken yogurt again, but this time I used the fat free natural yogurt (any natural or greek style yogurt will work). I stirred in 1 tbsp pure honey, which gives enough sweetness to cut through the sometimes sharp taste of natural yogurt. Sprinkle over 0.5-1 tbsp ground cinnamon, depending on how cinnamony you want it (I know, that isn’t a word!) and then top with slices of banana.
These are also great as a dessert or mid morning snack and I love that you can switch it up depending on what you have in the fridge/fruit basket and you get your fix of yogurt.
What are your fave combos?
