Made with sweet, fall fruit, creamy vanilla yogurt, spiced granola, and a generous sprinkle of chia seeds, these Easy Fruit and Granola Yogurt Bowls are the perfect weekday breakfast!
Quick and simple breakfasts are my favorite, especially when I am trying to get out the door and to class on time. A nutritious fruit yogurt bowl packed with gut healthy probiotics, protein, fiber, calcium and other vitamins definitely fits the bill.
When I have more time in the mornings, I love more elaborate breakfasts like these Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes with Nectarine Compote and Brioche French Toast with Spiced Nectarines. However, easy yogurt bowls are a light and healthy way to start your day, and will leave you satisfied until lunch!
How to Make Yogurt Bowls
This protein-packed healthy yogurt bowl will definitely become your go to breakfast. It is ready in five minutes, calls for a few simple ingredients, and won’t leave behind a bunch of dirty dishes. What’s not to love?!
The key to a delicious yogurt bowl is smooth yogurt, seasonal fruit, and loads of toppings. Try different combinations–the sky’s the limit!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Yogurt – I use whole milk vanilla yogurt, but this yogurt bowl will also be great with plain, plant-based, or greek yogurt.
- Fruit – Fresh, dried, or pureed fruit are all great choices.
- Granola/Oats – Granola has lots of fiber, flavor and crunch, making it a great yogurt bowl topping. My go to is chai flavored granola, as it’s packed with warm spices like cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Any flavor of granola will be great though!
- Nuts – Nuts are packed with protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamin E, and magnesium. Walnuts, almonds, pecans, and pistachios all work well.
- Seeds – Yet another superfood to top this granola yogurt bowl with! Chia seeds are high in Omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and other nutrients. Other options include flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and hemp seeds.
- Sweeteners – Organic, raw honey adds a great touch of sweetness to tart yogurt. Maple syrup and agave nectar are other options, especially for those looking for a vegan yogurt bowl.
- Nut Butter – Almond or peanut butter adds tons of protein and creaminess to the meal.
