Yogurt 3 Ways

As most people, I find myself eating breakfast in less than five minutes. This drives me crazy. Breakfast is such a great meal, I hate to short change it. However, I have found my compromise. I started doing more yogurt and cottage cheese because they were filling and I at least wasn't just grabbing last nights leftovers!

Vegan Breakfast - 3 ways

Since having kids, I have had a love hate relationship with yogurt. Fat is good for the kids so I wanted full fat yogurt but all of them are filled with sugar. Then I would do greek yogurt because they had less sugar but still the flavored ones were filled with sugar. I always have plain greek yogurt because I like to use it for sauces and dips. I finally decided to start to work with that to see if I could come up with a tasty breakfast. I don't always love the sweet breakfast so I tried to find a savory option too. The following three have turned into my go-to yogurt breakfasts.

By the way, my new favorite yogurt is the S0 Delicious Dairy Free yogurt. It's low on sugar, good fat and good calcium ... win, win, win!

Peanut Butter & Banana
1/2 c greek yogurt or So Delicious Dairy Free yogurt
1 banana
1/4 c peanut butter
1/2 t cocoa powder
1 t honey

Mix all ingredients with an immersion blender.

Cucumber & Dill
1/2 c greek yogurt or So Delicious Dairy Free yogurt
1/2 c cucumber
1 t dill
dash of salt and pepper
Serve with pita bread

Mix all ingredients together. This is a play on a tsatziki sauce but without the olive oil and garlic ... I just don't need that in the morning. This is even great topping on scrambled eggs!

Yogurt 3 Ways

Strawberry & Pistachio
1/2 c greek yogurt or So Delicious Dairy Free yogurt
1/4 t mint
1/4 c chopped strawberries
1 t agave nectar
2 t pistachio

Mix all ingredients except pistachios. When ready to eat, top with pistachios.
