Chocolate Raspberry Yogurt

yogDo you start your day with a sugar-filled yogurt because you cannot stand the regular old plain yogurt? Here is an alternative to the store-bought, sugar-filled yogurts. It’s delicious saves money to create your own. This is best to make the night before so the raspberries can soften and the juices from them can be mixed into your yogurt.

I added cocoa nibs to it…one of my obsessions. If you haven’t tried, you must! Its a pure/raw form of cocoa before processed. I buy on amazon or at whole foods. Cocoa nibs are filled with fiber, magnesium, iron and also add so much flavor!

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries (layer first)
  • 2/3 cup plain greek yogurt (wallaby is my favorite)
  • 1 tbsp. chocolate whey protein (optional)
  • 1 tbsp. cocoa nibs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 cup oats (optional)

Store in a sealed container overnight and mix it up in the morning and enjoy!

Super Seed Stir & Take Yogurt

superseedThis Super Seed Blend is from Trader Joe’s (located near the cereal) and is an easy & quick way to add flavor and fiber to your morning! It contains chia & hemp seeds, buckwheat groats, coconut chips, cranberries.

The easy thing about the breakfast is you can make everyone’s the night before. When you wake up, stir it up and either eat it or take it with you.

I use frozen berries so once its mixed, it creates a beautiful color that makes my kids really happy.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup berries at the bottom
  • 2/3 cup greek yogurt (I am in love with Wallaby’s Greek for its smooth & creamy consistency – found at Whole Foods, Lucky’s and Dierbergs)
  • Add a hint of sweetness (we use plain yogurt so it needs a touch of sweetness) – I use 1tbsp vanilla protein powder, but you can also use 2 tsp honey
  • 2 tbsp Trader Joe’s Super Seed Blend
  • Top with 1/3 cup of Vanilla Almond Milk
