Greek Yogurt Combinations with Nutritional Breakdown

Greek Yogurt Combos

I have made it approximately 10,882 days on this earth without any restrictions to my diet. Man, that makes me sound really old, huh? But grateful, because who wants to deal with dietary restrictions? Bleck.

But, add me to the list of unlucky individuals who must follow a dairy-free diet. The restriction is perhaps temporary as the restriction is in response to some *issues* Baby Shea is having. We won’t go into detail on that one (you’re welcome!), but her pediatrician has recommended I go dairy-free, for now, so long as I continue breastfeeding and pumping. Sigh.

So while I was hoping to add to this “Greek Yogurt Combinations” series of ideas, it will be slightly abbreviated for the time being. Think of me and my yogurt-loving heart whenever you’re enjoying your bowl of delicious and super healthy Greek yogurt, wouldja couldja?

Serves: 1 serving
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon or apple pie spice (cinnamon + nutmeg + allspice)
  • 1 apple, cored and diced
  • 2 Tbsp granola
Instructions
  1. In a serving bowl, combine the yogurt, brown sugar, and cinnamon/apple pie spice; mix well.
  2. Top the yogurt with the diced apple, granola, and an additional sprinkling of cinnamon or apple pie spice, if desired.
Notes
If you do decide to try nothing else of this recipe or post - mix some cinnamon in your yogurt. SO GOOD. Watch the portion of granola as it tends to be very high in calories - a little big goes a long way!

Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1 serving
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • ⅔ cup fresh or frozen (and thawed) blueberries
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened coconut chips
Instructions
  1. Scoop the yogurt into a bowl and drizzle with honey. Top with blueberries and coconut chips.
Notes
Coconut chips add great crunch, but similar to granola, a little bit goes a long way. Be sure to buy unsweetened coconut to omit lots of added sugar. I used frozen and thawed blueberries but fresh would be equally as wonderful, or better! Coconut + blueberry = amazing. Add honey and...mmmm!
