Ditch the packaged fruit and yogurt that is full of sugar. Try this Mango Vanilla Greek Yogurt with Wheat Germ recipe for a more healthy filling breakfast.
Creamy vanilla Greek yogurt with fresh fruit then finished off with a sprinkling of wheat germ. Three different flavors and textures make up this delicious Mango Vanilla Greek Yogurt with Wheat Germ breakfast bowl.
Too many add-ins can be a deliciously bad thing.
Before you go dishing out a heaping huge bowl of Greek yogurt and pile on all the fixings stop and think moderation! I will typically use the little 5.3 ounce cups, 1 mango (or whatever fruit I have) and a teaspoon of wheat germ then I split the bowl with my son. Honestly it is enough. Also keep in mind what you are mixing in to the yogurt. Before you know it you may have added in so many calories that this healthy breakfast or snack just turned into a full up high calorie meal.
Back to Basics
I know the yogurt cups with fruit “at the bottom” or already mixed in is cheap and convenient. But it is so much sugar and you receive no benefit from the fruit in those products. Raw, whole fruit in it’s natural state is what is going to give you the vitamins and fiber. The boiled down sugar loaded jelly they put in the yogurt cups is only there for flavor.
More Fruit Mix-ins
Berries (strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry etc.)
The main thing to remember is not to over do it on fruit.
Chopped nuts such as pistachios and almonds
These toppings give your yogurt a great crunchy texture and flavor.
