3 Tasty Twists on Fruit + Yogurt
Updated: Jul 29, 2020
As some of you may know, my favorite breakfast in the world is fresh fruit and yogurt. It has healthy carbs, antioxidants, and protein all together in one. However, when you have it every day it can start to feel monotonous. Today I am going to show you how to create 3 healthy, tasty modifications of a tried and true classic.
Warm Blueberry Sauce on Greek Yogurt-
Pour 1 cup of fresh sweet blueberries into a sauce pan with 3 tablespoons of water and a teaspoon of Manuka honey and a splash of vanilla extract.
Stir and cook on high heat until most of the berries have burst and it has created a deep purple color.
Then, once they have burst, turn the heat down and simmer until for 5 or so minutes. Then, pour half onto a half cup of greek yogurt. Save the other half for later.
Healthy Caramelized Bananas on Greek Yogurt
Slice half of a ripe banana into round disks.
In a small bowl, toss the bananas with a teaspoon of cinnamon, a splash of vanilla extract, and a teaspoon or so of maple syrup. Make sure all the bananas are coated in the mixture.
In a non-stick pan, add a teaspoon of coconut oil and place the bananas onto it. Cook each side for around a minute until golden brown.
Serve on top of greek yogurt.
Healthy Apple Pie Filling on Greek Yogurt
Skin 1 apple and dice into very small cubes.
In a small saucepan, melt a teaspoon of coconut oil.
Add a half cup of water, a splash of vanilla extract, two teaspoons of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, and a half teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (if desired).
Turn heat onto high and cook down until the apples become soft, then turn the heat down to simmer until apples reach your desired consistency.
