I couldn’t decide if this went better in the “Eat More Fruits and Veggies” category, or the “Here are some great breakfast ideas for you” category. Because really, it fits into both. What a deal!!
This is super simple to make and so, so yummy. Actually, it’s just delightful – which is why I just had to give it this cheesy name: “Fruit and Yogurt Delight.” I know, it sounds like something you’d get at the Mayberry Drug Store and share with Opie or something. Bet he’d think that’d be swell.
But, take a look at this, and you tell me – does that not look delightful?!
So, Fruit and Yogurt Delight, the recipe:
2 cups plain yogurt (yes, plain – see below for soapbox.)
4-8 drops of stevia, or 1-2 Tablespoons real maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup each of fresh or frozen strawberries and blueberries
Mix yogurt, stevia or maple syrup and vanilla. Layer yogurt and fruit in a dish, thus making it delightful to eat, and delightful to look at.
Here’s my delightful little taste tester:
Here’s my promised yogurt soapbox:
I get so frustrated because SO MANY things in the store are advertised as being SO good for us but really it’s not (oh, don’t get me started). But one of my biggest frustrations is yogurt. It’s supposedly like the greatest health food according to almost everyone who says that it is. It’s full of high fructose corn syrup and artificial colors and artificial flavors. OR if it’s the “no sugar added” kind, it has fake junk in it to make it sweet.
I could go on and on. (But I won’t – today.)
So, if you get the plain yogurt (or make your own) and add some yummy (and REAL) things to it, it’s just well, delightful!
Go give this a try!
