Loaded Yogurt

I've discovered a new favorite breakfast -- a little something I like to call "loaded yogurt."  It's simple, really, but it tastes really great and is fairly low in calories, but high in fiber and protein. 

1 c. vanilla yogurt
2 T. granola
1/2 c. fruit (I typically use blueberries)
1 T. chopped walnuts

I also add a serving of powdered fiber because I'm trying to get more fiber in my diet.  I like to add it to my yogurt because it doesn't get thick like it does when you add the powder to drinks.  This quick and easy breakfast is 254 calories, 6 grams of fat and 12 grams of protein.


  1. Plus it just SOUNDS "sinful" when you call it loaded. ;)

    Sometimes, for me, it's all about how something sounds.

  2. What kind of granola? I have a recipe for homemade crockpot granola that I love to add to yogurt, but I'm sure it is high in least when I'm pouring all the honey in the crockpot, it sure seems like it would be!

  3. I do this, too! I mix it up, and sometimes just throw in a handful of Kashi (the Go Lean Crunch kind)and call it good :)

  4. Sounds delicious! I was just thinking of spooning some of my favorite granola onto my yogurt. I've never done that before. It would be a great way to get my fave cereal w/o a whole bowl. It's pretty high-cal. The walnuts are a great idea too!

  5. Have you tried adding flax seed? Extra fiber. :)
