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 calories...at 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. :)
