Cranky Cooking: Breakfast Yogurt with Berries & Granola

Posted by: Maggie

This is perfect for a warm summer morning. I started eating this sometime last summer I think when my friend Kristy suggested it in a comment to a post where I mentioned that I’m not a fan of breakfast foods, but know that I need to eat breakfast to stay healthy and lose weight. This recipe is super delicious and super healthy.

It’s just Greek Yogurt topped with Berries and Granola. I start with a low fat plain greek yogurt, it’s pretty low in sugar and very high in protein. Perfect for a healthy breakfast. Then I top it with mixed berries. Here’s the crucial step though. You need to use frozen mixed berries and defrost them in the microwave at half power. This warms them just a little and creates all this delicious berry juice that turns your plain yogurt into berry yogurt. So good! Then for some crunch and a little fiber top it with just a little granola. I like Trader Joe’s Low Fat Granola Cereal with Almond.

Try it! You won’t be sorry!
