My family is a breakfast family. My kids could eat this easy breakfast foods for every meal if I let them.

The problem is that I’m allergic to eggs and that puts a damper on it. We rarely eat out for breakfast because there isn’t much for me to eat so I’d rather just eat at home. However, when we do eat out I usually get oatmeal or yogurt, granola and fresh fruit dish.

Yogurt Granola

This easy recipe is a new favorite breakfast for the family this summer. It looks fancy but even the kids can make it. Some people call it a berry yogurt parfait but with a fancy name like that my kids are guaranteed to not like it so I like to keep my names simple.

The best part about this recipe is that you can really personalize this and pick the yogurt flavor you like best. You can use plain yogurt, greek yogurt or flavored yogurt.

My very favorite yogurt EVER is the creamy yogurt from Trader Joe’s. I think they make it for toddlers and kids that need the extra calories, but I think it’s so creamy and smooth. It’s like pudding. We moved away from our Trader Joe’s and now it’s over thirty minutes away so I always get it for a delicious treat for myself.

Kitchen Tools for Breakfast Yogurt

Jars– I love these mason jars and use them for all kinds of things. This is perfect for this recipe. Part of what makes this breakfast so good is that you can see all the layers and glass jars are inexpensive and multipurpose so they won’t be sitting in your cabinet collecting dust.

You can also find these at your local thrift store for an inexpensive price. It’s fun shopping for those because you can get a lot of different varieties.

If you’re in a hurry and you don’t want to spend the time making the pretty jars, you can make a yogurt breakfast bowl. Just add your yogurt and top with granola and berries.

Cutting Board Mats– I think I put this on almost every single recipe I post because I literally use them every day. These are one of the favorite things I have in the kitchen. They don’t take up much space so they’re easy to store. They’re easy to clean and great for adding ingredients to mixing bowls and hot pots.

Is yogurt really that good for you?

YES, and there are a gazillion different types of yogurt out there.

  • The main positive thing is that they contain probiotics and can help with gut health. If you are looking for that benefit, then you need to double check the packaging.
  • Greek yogurt contains tons of protein and is great to add to breakfast or a morning snack.
  • Yogurt has lots of calcium and is good for all ages.
  • There is some yogurt with cartoon characters that my kids used to beg for and they are full of sugar. it may not be a healthy snack after all.

Ingredients for Yogurt and Granola

Vanilla yogurt– I used plain low-fat yogurt but you can also use Greek yogurt for the added protein. The berries and granola have a great taste you don’t need any fancy flavors unless you want to change things up a bit.

Blackberries, fresh Blueberries, and fresh Strawberries– Make sure to use fresh berries and not frozen. You’ll also want to slice the strawberries up so they are in bite sized pieces.

Granola cereal– This is where I take a shortcut and buy my favorite granola cereal. The store brands are usually inexpensive and taste good.

I have made homemade granola before and it’s easy to do so if you want to make your own granola, go for it. This is the granola recipe I use. It won’t last long because it’s really delicious.
