Yogurt bowls are one of the easiest (and healthiest) breakfast meals or snacks that you can make. With just a few simple ingredients, you can make a quick meal that’s delicious and nutritious; they are also one of my favorite things to eat when I feel like I need to do a mini reset with my diet but still want to satisfy my sweet tooth.
Acai smoothie bowls are a little too sweet for me (and I’d honestly rather just drink a smoothie), but regular yogurt bowls have always been just right. I prefer to use Greek yogurt when I make these because of its thicker texture, and the extra benefits that you get from eating it vs. regular yogurt (helps improve gut health, boosts metabolism, has lower sugar). I try not to have too much dairy but it’s been a staple in my fridge for years.
Some delicious combinations to try:
- sliced bananas, blueberries, coconut flakes (add chia seeds for extra fiber)
- strawberries, raspberries, blue berries, granola, raw honey drizzle
- caramelized bananas, peaches, granola, raw honey drizzle
- peaches, granola, sliced almonds
- blueberries, granola, almond butter (sprinkle with cinnamon)
- strawberry compote, chia seeds, and blueberries
- dark chocolate, caramel, pecans, granola
- blueberry, granola, almond butter
- banana slices, strawberry slices, cacao nibs, chia seeds
- raspberries, blueberries, almond slices, strawberries
- almond butter, bananas, coconut flakes, chia seeds
- almond butter, granola, cacao nibs, coconut flakes, bananas
I love yogurt bowls because you can create so many types of fruit and nut combinations and they take less than 5 minutes to make. I tend to stick with berries, bananas and a few stone fruits but you can literally make any type of combo. You can also use frozen fruit in these as well. They can even be meal prepped in advance. My favorite Greek yogurt to use is by FAGE, and if you feel that the yogurt alone is too bitter, you can mix in some raw honey before you add the rest of your toppings for a simple but fulfilling meal.
