January is Perfect for a Fresh Start!

It’s January and while I don’t believe in resolutions, I do like to think of the month of January as the perfect time for fresh starts and new commitments (or just re-committing to old ones!)  

For our family, hubby and I are recommitting to our healthy eating plan. We got a little crazy over the holidays, which is ok, but January is definitely the time to get back on track.

What that means for me is portion control, staying away from high carbohydrate items, remembering to take my vitamins and supplements, drinking plenty of water and maybe actually making it to the gym. (I’ve been 3 times already, whoo-hoo!) 

Easy Yogurt Bowls for Breakfast or Snack

I wanted to share one of my favorite easy treats with you today: These Easy Yogurt Bowls are fantastic for breakfast, snacks and even desserts.  (I have a lot of fruit on hand right now, so the kids had these for dessert last night and again for breakfast this morning- they love just about every combination of yogurt, fruit and fun add-ins.) 

What makes this such a perfect little snack is the combination of yogurt plus fruit and nut add-ins combined make a delicious protein and fiber-packed snack! Thanks to Yoplait for partnering up with me on this post!

How to make yogurt bowls

Yoplait® Yogurt makes a perfect base for yogurt bowls. The single-serve Greek 100 Vanilla is my very favorite. It’s the perfect size for snacking and the vanilla flavor is so versatile it’s great with almost any add-in you can think of.

I also like to use the Yoplait plain yogurt in smoothies and cooking, so I frequently buy the bulk size container of plain yogurt and then just add in my own vanilla and sweetener to make my own vanilla.

Easy yogurt bowl ideas

When I want a sweet treat without having to pull out the blender, I love my yogurt bowls.  They are so easy to throw together and the add-in combinations are endless! (Sorry smoothie bowls, you’re too much hassle, lol.)

How to Make Yogurt Bowls

To make these amazing treats, you really only need 3 ingredients:  

  • Yogurt
  • Fruit of choice 
  • Something for crunch (nuts, seeds, graham crackers, granola, etc.

To make the bowls, it’s as easy as a yogurt layer topped with fruit and a sprinkle of your crunchy add-in and voilà, a yogurt bowl!
