Having a busy schedule doesn’t leave to much time for preparing a decent breakfast. Mixing even nuts and granola can take time, so here’s another way to use Greek yogurt for breakfast. If you love smoothies, you’ll absolutely adore this one.
Get some fresh fruits like apples, peaches, pears, or anything of the sort and cut to bite-size pieces. Get your blender and add these fruits, and of course, Greek yogurt. Mix until you get the desired density, and your breakfast is ready to go. You can distribute it into plastic smoothie cups and have your breakfast on the go, or pour in cups and add granular mix. Depending on how busy your schedule is, you may go with either variant.

If you can’t live without chocolate, this recipe is just right for you. A great thing about Greek yogurt is that it goes well with fruit, nuts, and grain as well. To start, get some dried cherries. You can also go with frozen cherries, but then you’ll make a smoothie with it.
Pour one cup of dried cherries, add chocolate chips, or any chocolate type that you prefer. If you decide to use a whole block of chocolate, be sure to cut it into small pieces. Add Greek yogurt and mix it until you get the right density. Add as much yogurt as you want, but make sure that the other ingredients don’t float in it. If you use too much yogurt, you won’t feel that magic taste of cherry and chocolate.
Banana & Nuts Mix
Another fruit that goes really well with granola, nuts, and Greek yogurt is banana. Adding a banana to your breakfast doesn’t only have to come in a form of a smoothie. But then again, there’s nothing wrong with smoothies for breakfast.
If you prefer to eat your breakfast with a spoon, you can cut a banana into pieces, add any type of nut, and of course, Greek yogurt. This way, you have the crunchiness of nuts or granola and soft texture of banana. If you don’t like to mix soft with crunchy, you can use dried bananas. You can get them in any health store. The best thing about dried bananas is that you can keep for a very long time. They won’t spoil, lose flavor or taste no matter what.
Frozen Fruits and Yogurt Mix
The most practical solution for a healthy breakfast is frozen fruits. If you don’t know what to put in Greek yogurt, going with frozen berries is always the right way to go. You can get a bag of frozen fruit mix and add nuts, or if you’re allergic to nuts, add yogurt only. The best way to prepare it is in a form of a smoothie.
Prepare your blender, add your frozen fruit mix, a couple of ice cubes, and Greek yogurt. If the sourness of yogurt and berries combined, you can add maple syrup or honey. Although honey is the healthier version, adding a teaspoon of maple syrup won’t hurt.
Blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries are a great anti-oxidant, so if you have a hangover or just want to boost your immune system, any dark-colored berries will do fine.
