Delightful breakfast yogurt bowls with lowcarb fruits, nuts and seeds. Perfect for a healthy weekday breakfast or on-the-go!



For 1 person

1 cup plain, full-fat yogurt

Berries or other fruit as described

Seeds or nuts as described

1 tbsp cream (optional)


  • Blueberry Mint Yogurt
    Blend 1 cup of plain yogurt with a handful of blueberries and a bunch of chopped mint leaves. Keep a few blueberries whole to garnish.
  • Cherry Coconut Yogurt
    Cut a handful of pitted cherries in half. If possible, use sour cherries, as they carry less sugar around. Mix cherries with 1 cup of yogurt and 1 tbsp each of linseeds and coconut flakes. Sprinkle with more coconut for garnish
  • Dragonfruit Yogurt Drink
    Blend 1 cup of coconut with half a dragonfruit for one serving. As the dragonfruit contains a lot of water, this is more a drink than a bowl of yoghurt, but just as delightful.
  • Grapefruit Lemon Yogurt
    Mix 1 cup of yogurt with zest of half a lemon. Open a grapefruit and take out half the flesh, removing the skins. Cut into small pieces and place on top of the yoghurt. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of black sesame seeds. If you can’t get grapefruit, use pomelo instead.
  • Papaya Yogurt with Chia Seeds and Cashew Nuts
    Blend 1 cup of plain yoghurt with 1/2 cup of diced papaya and 1 tbsp of Chia seeds. Put aside for 10 minutes to allow the seeds to soak in some of the yogurt’s liquid. Keep a few papaya cubes for garnish and serve with a small bowl of roasted cashew nuts on the side.
  • Pineapple Walnut Yogurt
    This one contains a bit more sugar because of the pineapple – which contrasts well with the slightly bitter taste of the super-healthy walnuts. Blend 1 cup of plain yogurt with 1/2 cup of diced papaya and move to a bowl. Chop up a small handful of walnuts and add the pieces to the yogurt. Top with a few pineapple cubes for garnish.
  • Strawberry Pecan Yogurt with Nut Mix
    Blend 1 cup of yogurt with 1/2 cup diced strawberries and keep a few berry pieces for garnish. Chop pecans into small pieces and add to the bowl. Serve with a small bowl of mixed nuts on the side.
