Yogurt is cosmopolitan and quite versatile. It can be mixed with nuts and fruits in a variety of recipes. In addition, yogurt makes a fantastic snack and a terrific breakfast.It would even be more fantastic if you can cook your own yogurt using a good quality yogurt maker, which is easily available at your favorite online selling sites. When you have your own yogurt maker, you can enjoy healthy living and eating since you can control what goes into the yogurt you eat. Adding just the right kinds of fruits will make yogurt taste even more incredible.
You can make a simple yogurt with fruit recipe using a chopped apple, raisins, seedless grapes, sliced bananas, and berries in season. Mix all the fruits together, then top with yogurt. You can also do a variation of this recipe by mixing the fruits and yogurt together. How about a full medley of fruits with yogurt? You can simply toss some strawberries, pineapple, mangoes, grapes and raspberries together with some yogurt and drizzle with a bit of honey. This recipe uses fresh fruits so you’ve got all the nutrients packed into a low-fat dessert or breakfast.
I also like putting together chopped mixed nuts, a bit of sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds, a slice banana and a handful of berries, either frozen or defrosted, plus some yogurt I flavor with a bit of vanilla. I layer the ingredients in a bowl and sit down to a filling and healthy meal or dessert.
I believe banana is number one when it comes to using yogurt as a topper. Try this banana, walnut and honey Greek yogurt recipe, which needs sliced banana, walnuts, some clover honey and some Greek yogurt. Add a dash of cinnamon for more flavor. Or take some Greek yogurt, toss a sliced kiwi into it and drizzle a small amount of agave nectar. Voila! You have a fantastic and simple fruit-and-yogurt dessert.
I also love using martini or parfait glasses, into which I put sliced fig layered with Greek yogurt. I alternate the yogurt and fruit till the glass is filled, then drizzle my creation with some honey. This makes an instant fruitini that is healthy and non-intoxicating. Sometimes, I won’t need to have fruit slices in my yogurt. I just take some Greek yogurt, and drizzle it with some clover honey, zest from a key lime plus a squeeze of key lime juice. To temper the acidity of the lime, I add a bit of vanilla extract. This recipe delivers a tantalizing mixture of sweet, sour and creamy in a glass of healthy yogurt.
