There were a few weeks where I’d throw up a #DailyYogurt idea a day, but I’ve been slacking lately. Honestly, I ran out of yogurt and my pantry stock was hit hard after two weekends away. I’ll still share ideas as they come on Instagram , but I wanted to grab a few of my favorites and archive them here. Below each photo is my original Instagram comment.
1. Peppermint Patty
The husband bought me peppermint patties for V-day. I couldn’t help myself. 1 pattie + mini chocolate chips + a drizzle of syrup
2. Save Your Cereal Crumbs!
This is a nod to my frugal side. It’s topped with the crumbs I save from the bottoms of the strawberry shredded wheat boxes and freeze dried strawberry bag. No extra sweetener needed. It’s delicious!
3. Orange Date
Today’s is topped with a fresh mandarin orange, 1 chopped date, a chopped walnut and a touch of nutmeg. It’s amazing!
4. Grated Chocolate and Berries
Today’s is topped with frozen berries I warmed in the microwave. Then, just because I could, I grated a small square of dark chocolate on top. :)
5. Banana Graham
Today’s has banana, graham cracker crumbs and a chocolate swirl. :)
6. Sunflower Grapefruit
Today’s is topped with the most amazing pink grapefruit, sunflower seeds and honey.
7. Citrus Explosion!
Today’s is a citrus explosion! Nonfat Greek topped with grapefruit sections, mandarin orange, and grated lemon with pine nuts and honey. A-MAZING!!
8. Carrot Cake
Today’s is inspired by the carrot cake @vitamuffin top. I double toasted one and cut it into cubes to top the yogurt then added some grated carrot, a chopped walnut half and a bit of honey. It’s totally decadent!
9. Dried Fruit Fest!
It’s a dried fruit fest for ! Just 5 g each of cranberries, blueberries, apricots, sunflower seeds and honey makes a tasty treat!
10. Orange Pecan Maple
Had a little fun with today. That’s orange pecan maple with a bit of flax.
11. Apple Graham
Today’s is topped with apple, crumbled graham cracker, honey and cinnamon.
1/4 cup frozen raspberries + 1/4 tsp raspberry extract + 1 tbsp cocoa powder + 1/2 tbsp honey = a much needed, delicious break from work. :)
14. Frozen Blueberry Puree
1/2 cup frozen blueberries pureed with 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt and 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa then topped with more frozen blueberries.
15. Chocolate Almond
1/4 tsp almond extract, 1/4 oz almonds and 1/2 tbsp chocolate syrup swirled in 1/2 cup nonfat Greek is pretty yum!
16. Who Needs Milk for Cereal?
This is my who-needs-milk-for-cereal It’s topped with puffed kamut (like puffed wheat,) frozen blueberries, banana and honey.
17. Chocolate Peanut Butter
I went smooth for today’s – that’s peanut butter, cocoa powder and honey mixed in making an indulgent, yummy snack.
18. Who Needs Ice Cream? (OK, I still do)
1/2 cup Greek yogurt + 1/2 cup frozen blueberries + 1/2 tbsp chocolate syrup drizzled on top = a who needs ice cream :)
19. Take THAT, M&Ms!
The husband was having M&M’s and instead of digging in mindlessly I chopped 1/4 of a serving and 1/4 tbsp of Hershey syrup and topped 1/2 cup nonfat Greek yogurt.
20. Sunflower Cranberry
A yummy, chewy, crunchy today. Craisins, sunflower seeds and honey.
I’ll say this until my dying day: Food you prepare is ultimately more satisfying then something you just grab on the run. Take a minute the next time you want a snack and have fun with it. Make food your friend instead of something you’re constantly fighting. That’s what GreenLiteBites is all about for me.
