Yogurt And Fruits For Breakfast


Yogurt And Fruits For Breakfast are good and easy to grab a bowl of cereal, banana and a glass of orange juice to start the day, as you leave the house to go to work. But have you ever thought that if your breakfast can be beneficial, why not make it in the morning? Here are six reasons why we think that yogurt and fruits for breakfast are better than other breakfasts.

For a healthy breakfast: combine yogurt and fruit!

YINI - what about a healthy breakfast ?

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and there are many recipes and ways to prepare your breakfast.

Yogurt and fruit: a winning combination!

Having a breakfast that combines two healthy foods, a yogurt and a fruit, is tastefull and could be beneficial to your health.  A study suggests that combining yogurt with fruit may be of great interest providing probiotics, prebiotics and essential nutrients.

Fruit and yogurt have been identified individually as indicators of a healthy diet:

  • Fruits are rich in fiber, potassium, antioxidants, carotenoids, vitamins and have been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases.
  • Yogurt is rich in protein, calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin B12, lactic bacteria and has been associated with a reduced weight gain and risk of type 2 diabetes.

The association of yogurt and fruits, in addition to being tasty, may confer combining health benefits through the potential interactions between fruit prebiotics and yogurt probiotics: fruits are rich in fiber which promotes the colonization of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria in the colon.

Taking the time out in your morning routine to eat a breakfast with a yogurt and a fruit can give you the energy and the nutrients necessary to start the day right!


Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowls with Toppings by Modern Honey. Healthy Greek Yogurt topped with fresh fruits, nuts, and honey. It's a perfect breakfast to start the day!

I will never forget the day I walked into a breakfast buffet that knocked my socks off. I am a foodie and ALWAYS remember out of this world food buffets!

We were young, newly married and fresh out of college. Dean had landed his first “real” job out of college and each year his company took its employees and wives on a retreat to California. As we awoke the first morning, we were invited to breakfast.  As I walked into the restaurant, my jaw dropped to the floor. It was the most beautiful display of food I had ever seen in my life!

My eyes focused in on an array of clear glasses filled with yogurt topped with all kinds of vibrant fresh fruits and crunchy granola. There were so many options and I definitely wanted to try them all! I am pretty sure I took one of each…..in the name of “research” of course, in order to discover which flavor combination I liked the best. Even though it was 19 years ago, I can still remember exactly how those yogurt breakfast bowls tasted. The yogurt was rich and creamy and the perfect balance to the sweet fruit and decadent granola.

Thanks to that heavenly buffet, yogurt breakfast parfaits became one of my favorite breakfasts!

These Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowls are absolutely perfect for entertaining. It doesn’t get any easier than making your own Yogurt Bar by placing fresh Vanilla Greek Yogurt in a large bowl, then placing all types of fresh fruits, nuts, and granola for your guests to choose from in order to customize their own bowl.

These easy make-ahead breakfast yogurt fruit cups with home-made fruit compote are perfect for grab-and-go breakfasts on busy mornings.

Easy breakfast yogurt fruit pots


  • Fruit. I used strawberries, blueberries, mango and pineapple but peaches, cherries, plums, raspberries, apples and pears will also work well. I used fresh fruit but frozen fruit works just as well.
  • Sugar. Feel free to substitute with a sweetener of your choice.
  • Lemon juice.
  • Yogurt. I use full fat Greek yogurt.
Strawberry and yogurt breakfast cups


  1. Yogurt is rich in calcium which is crucial for good bone and teeth health. It’s also been found that eating foods high in calcium can signal the body to produce less cortisol (the body’s main stress hormone).
  2. Yogurt is packed with protein. 
  3. Most yogurt (check the packaging to be sure) has added probiotic cultures which promote good gut health which not only regulates digestion but also strengthens your immune system.
  4. Yogurt is also high in Vit B12, Vit B2 (Riboflavin) and phosphorus. These vitamins help keep your blood cells healthy, are needed for growth and good overall health and the phosphorus works with the calcium to build strong bones and teeth.
Blueberry breakfast yogurt cups


  1. Make the fruit sauces: Start by using any seasonal fruit you can find (stone fruit, tropical fruit, berries, apples and pears all work incredibly well) to make the compote you serve with the yogurt. For every cup of fruit, I added a tablespoon of sweetener and a teaspoon of lemon juice or lime juice. You can use any sweetener of your choice. Honey, maple syrup, Xylitol, Stevia (although the amounts will have to be adjusted by quite a bit if you choose to use stevia) or sugar can all be used. Cook the fruit down with the sweetener and acid of your choice until thickened then allow to cool.
  2. Assemble the yogurt fruit cups: Layer the compote with yogurt in glass pots/jars with lids. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. The compote can be stored covered in the fridge on its own for up to 2 weeks.


We’ve all heard that we should be eating “five-a-day” when it comes to fruit and vegetables. But what does that actually mean? A serving of fruit or vegetables is roughly 80 grams or almost 3 ounces. For fruit or vegetables that can be measured in cups, a cup is considered a serving. 2 servings of fruit and 3 servings of vegetables is the general recommendation.

Valentine’s Day just passed us by…  and it’s officially the month of love.

Our daughter Olivia is now at the age where she understands and gets excited for holidays, birthdays, and pretty much any reason to decorate the house for a celebration.  When she started seeing heart decorations appear at every store and in the windows of several neighbors’ houses, Olivia immediately became curious.  I explained that Valentine’s Day was a day that we got to tell all the special people in our lives how much we love and appreciate them.

Although I’m right with Olivia in my love of decorating the house and having a reason to celebrate pretty much anything, I try to make it a point to make my family feel important and appreciated on a daily basis.  Being the fan of food that I am, that love is usually shown through the food I serve.

We are big fans of yogurt in this house.  It’s our go-to weekday breakfast routine.  When we want to feel extra fancy, we dress it up like these Breakfast Superfood Yogurt Bowls.  It contains our favorite rich and creamy variety… FAGE Total 5% plain Greek yogurt along with some especially nutritious and tasty toppings!

When I think luxury in the yogurt aisle of our local grocery story, my eyes (and stomach) always goes to FAGE.  The all-natural Greek yogurt is unmatched in its rich and creamy texture and delicious taste.  Made with only milk and live active yogurt cultures, FAGE Total 5% plain Greek yogurt is full of protein, contains no added sugar, is a good source of calcium, and is Non-GMO Project Verified!

Best of all, it pairs perfectly with your favorite toppings!

The topping options are pretty much endless when it comes to yogurt bowls, but we have our tried and trusted favorites around our house.  Hands down Olivia’s favorite topping is sprinkles (i.e. chia seeds).  That’s right.  In quite possibly our greatest feat as parents to date, Olivia thinks that superfood-tastic chia seeds are indeed sprinkles.

With Olivia’s peanut allergy, we’ve been digging almond butter around here lately.  It’s a flavorful and healthy addition to theseBreakfast Superfood Yogurt Bowls!

Asheley is a fan of crunchy granola and those powerhouse flaxseeds, which contain a whole bunch of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, and antioxidants.

Me?  I’m a fruit topping kind of guy.  Give me all the superfood power that strawberries, blueberries, tangerines, and bananas have to offer.  Of course I swap out fruit depending on what looks good at the supermarket, but these are definitely some of my favorites!

When it comes time to create aBreakfast Superfood Yogurt Bowls that the whole family will enjoy, we make sure to include it all on top of our favorite FAGE Total 5% plain Greek yogurt!  It’s such a luxuriously nutritious way to start our day and keeps us going strong all morning long!

10 Yogurt Bowl Ideas for Breakfast

Healthy yogurt bowls are a quick breakfast you can make with little effort. I’m sharing all types of mix-ins and toppings you can use to make your yogurt bowl just right for you.

Finding time to make a well-balanced breakfast can be really hard. Finding the right breakfast options can also be challenging.

More often than not, we want something quick and easy while still being nutritious. We don’t always have time to break out the pans to cook eggs and sausages.

What if something provided nutrition, colorful and flavorful elements, and was relatively easy to make? In come yogurt bowls!

Yogurt bowls take only a few minutes to make. Plus, the variety is endless.

You could even have one every day of the week and still come up with something different each day.

What is Healthy to Put in Yogurt?

There are some different items that you can add to yogurt bowls. Let’s discuss a few:


Adding fresh fruit to your yogurt bowls brings a level of sweetness, beautiful colors, and valuable nutrition. Fruits are a natural source of vitamins and minerals.

Fresh fruit is also a substantial source of fiber.

Some great fruit options for yogurt bowls are:

  • Berries – strawberries, blueberries, blackberries
  • Bananas
  • Kiwi
  • Mango
  • Pineapple
  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Clementines

There are other ways you can add fruit flavor, too, if you don’t have access to fresh fruit all of the time.

  • Frozen fruit will work just as great as fresh fruit. It also allows you to try fruits that aren’t in season where you live.
  • Fruit preserves – Make sure that you find sugar-free, naturally-made preserves. Avoid ones with artificial sweeteners.
  • Fruit syrups – You can make these at home or find them at health food stores. Again, avoid ones with added sugar. Or look for ones with natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup.


Nuts are a great way to add protein and healthy fat to your yogurt bowl. Nuts are also high in fiber and will help you feel full longer.

Nuts have very high levels of antioxidants as well.

Studies have proven that nuts are a great tool when trying to lose weight. In fact, your body could absorb fewer calories in some specific nuts (like walnuts and pistachios) than other food items.

While you may read that nuts are high in calories, take this fact into consideration. Remember, your body may not absorb all of those calories and actually help you lose inches.

Here are nut options to try:

  • Walnuts
  • Pistachios
  • Almonds
  • Pecans
  • Cashews

What about nut butter? They are great, too!

Nut butter is also easily accessible and comes in a lot of varieties. Nut butter is an excellent source of protein that adds a ton of earthy flavor.


Granola is a delicious way to add texture, flavor, and sweetness to your yogurt bowls. But not all granolas are created equal.

You must find a granola that’s going to work with your diet. There are some things to consider when you are looking for the right granola.

First, you have the option of making it yourself. And this is probably the best option!

This is true because you have control of what goes into your granola. Also, you control the amount of sugar that goes into your granola.

It’s the best option because you can cater it to your specific needs.

Now, if you don’t have time to make your own granola, don’t worry! There are plenty of other granola options available.

In fact, plenty of options can be found at your local grocery store. But there seems to be more variety found through online retailers.

Sweeteners and Other Flavorings

There are a few different ways that you can add sweetness to your yogurt bowl. These ingredients are important because you can control the amount of sugar going into your bowls.

So, when you’re buying yogurt, stick to plain and flavorless, if you can. The ones with added flavors are often also loaded with sugar.

  • Dark chocolate shavings
  • Maple syrup
  • Agave syrup
  • Honey
  • Citrus zest
  • Cinnamon (ground)
  • Nutmeg (ground)
  • Vanilla extract

What Yogurt Can You Use for Yogurt Bowls?

Now we know the best toppings for yogurt bowls. But what kind of yogurts will work best?

Yogurt is such a great way to add probiotics, protein, and other nutritious elements to your diet.

Greek Yogurt – Greek yogurt is known for it’s thicker, creamy texture and high protein content. Depending on your diet preferences, you can use a full-fat or low-fat version.

Plain / Regular Yogurt –This is the most common kind of yogurt found in grocery stores. There are various flavors available, but it’s recommended to stick to plain yogurt for the lowest sugar content.

Coconut Yogurt – Coconut yogurt is a great dairy-free option. It’s not as thick as Greek yogurt, but it will provide a unique, tropical flavor.

Soy Yogurt – Soy yogurt is another excellent dairy-free, vegan option.

Icelandic Yogurt – This type of yogurt also has a high protein content and has a slightly tangy flavor. It also has a thicker consistency, like Greek yogurt.
