I love yogurt for breakfast because, really, it is just a vehicle for other delicious things. And yogurt itself is delicious, so win-win. This recipe is merely a suggestion as the best yogurt bowls are made from whatever you have in the kitchen.

Since winter provides us with so much delicious citrus, this particular recipe is one I enjoy a lot. But feel free to experiment. Nuts, dried or fresh fruits, and almost any seed will work. Other great additions are jam, honey, or agave. I use those when I have an unsweetened yogurt.

Fresh herbs also work. Chopped-up mint or even rosemary can be fun. What better way to have a delicious breakfast and use up whatever food you have on hand?


  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 1/2 ruby red grapefruit
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds


Divide the yogurt four ways.

Top with fresh fruit, granola, and the seeds.
