Happy Monday! Here is your Meatless Monday recipe idea. This week, it's all about breakfast. You don't have to have bacon & eggs to get a protein-packed breakfast. Try this delicious, quick & healthy meatless alternative!
Fruit-flavored yogurts have a ton of extra sugar and not much protein, so consider making this instead for a decadent breakfast with both the fiber and protein you need to make it until lunch time.
Instead of flavored yogurt, I use plain non-fat Greek yogurt that is high in protein and I add my own fresh fruit to avoid the unnecessary sugar. I have paid close to $4.00 to buy something similar at Starbucks, and their version didn't even have fruit!
Here’s what you will need to make your own:
3/4 cup sliced strawberries, raspberries, or other juicy fruit
1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
8 oz non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup of natural granola (Udi’s Au Naturel is my favorite!)
Wild local honey
How to make it:
1) Layer half of the strawberries & half of the blueberries on the bottom. Add a drizzle of honey for extra sweetness.
2) Layer half of the yogurt on top of the berries.
3) Top with granola.
4) Add remaining yogurt & fruit. Top with remaining granola & drizzle with honey.
