Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bowls

Greek yogurt smoothie Bowl

This past Saturday I posted my breakfast on social media. SO many people wrote to me wanting the recipe for my Greek Yogurt Smoothie Bowls. As you have seen from my recent posts and social media feeds, we are huge fans of this type of breakfast. It’s filled with protein, fresh fruits, healthy seeds and nuts. Cheers from my home to yours.

 

Berry Yogurt Bowl

Are you burned out on your everyday breakfast routine? I am. I have been trying to change up my morning routine such as drinking warm lemon water before my cup of coffee, drinking more water and eating a healthier breakfast other than a nutritional bar. This Berry Yogurt Bowl starts with nonfat Greek yogurt (plain, vanilla or  you favorite flavor), fruit of your choice and your favorite seeds and nuts. This can also be made as a smoothie bowl recipe using my recipe for 3 Ingredient Banana Smoothie or Berry Peach Smoothie as the base and then top with the remaining ingredients. This recipe is fabulous for breakfast or even afternoon snack.

Fruit and Yogurt Parfait

For breakfast or an afternoon snack, this Fruit and Yogurt Parfait is our newest favorite! We have been also snacking on freeze dried fruit. So what exactly is freeze dried fruit?  Say hello to Fruttata freeze dried fruit.  In case you’re not familiar, the crisps are created via freeze drying , the process of removing moisture from food through a dryer at -40°F. Made from the freshest fruits, Fruttata is the ultimate, tasty ingredient to incorporate into your favorite recipes.  These also make wonderful snacks, but also work great in this Fruit and Yogurt Parfait recipe.

Cantaloupe Berry Salad

We are already in our first week of summer. It’s been great so far! I have been letting my kids help plan lunches and dinners. They also have been assisting me in the kitchen. Yesterday, we came up with this Cantaloupe Berry Salad (which was gone by last night). Use fresh cantaloupe, your favorite berries and a hint of lime juice and fresh mint. It’s light, refreshing and makes a healthy dessert or after pool snack. Happy Wednesday!

 

Berry Peach Smoothie

Just in time for Passover, this healthy Berry Peach Smoothie recipe is perfect for breakfast, dessert or an afternoon snack. Feel free to use fresh or frozen fruit, but don’t forget frozen fruit is just as healthy as fresh. Frozen fruits are picked at their peak and then flash frozen. This smoothie is a great way to kick off the week. It’s filled with natural antioxidants and protein!

Passover Berry Crisp

It seems bizarre to showcase Passover and Easter recipes already, but these holidays come early this year, just a few weeks away. I know people start planning their Passover menus ahead of time, and Passover desserts are always a challenge. Last year, I made this Passover Berry Crisp, and it came out great. I ended up making it several times, and I am positive it will be on this year’s list. Feel free to substitute 5 to 51/2 cups of apples or your favorite fruit for the berries. Happy spring holidays!

 

Blueberry Muffins with Greek Yogurt

When my daughter, Leigh, was bored the other day, I said, “Let’s make some muffins”. We had an abundance of blueberries on hand and came up with this healthier version of Blueberry Muffins with Greek Yogurt. Leigh is 13 years old, and she made this entire recipe on her own. I photographed this picture, but I told her that she just may have a summer internship. Anyway, this is the first of several of her creations coming soon that she made under my (very little) direction. They do taste as good as they look. We started with a dozen, and the next morning there were only 3 left 🙂
