Keto Made Easy: Gourmet Yogurt Bowl for Breakfast
This easy gourmet yogurt bowl is a great snack, breakfast or lunch option if you are looking to eat healthier. For Keto eaters, you can use a Carbmaster kind, Oikos Triple Zero, unsweetened Greek yogurt or other options that aren’t loaded with sugar. Ideally for Keto, you want to find a yogurt high in natural milk fats and low in any added sweeteners. For non-Keto eaters (like my kids), I prefer whole milk (full fat) and low sugar yogurts.
Gourmet Yogurt Bowl Ingredients
You can plan ahead with a shopping trip, or just combine what you have on hand. Here are some great ingredient options.
- Yogurt (can be plain or any flavor, but I usually go with vanilla)
- Seeds and Nuts
- Chia Seeds
- Sunflower Seeds
- Soy Nuts
- Macadamia Nuts
- Coconut Flakes
Toasting Nuts or Coconut Flakes
To increase the flavor complexity, you can toast some of your nuts and seeds. Simply heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Add the nuts or coconut. Stir frequently to avoid burning. Once the nuts or coconut is golden brown, you can choose to add a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup for a touch of sweetness.
Remove from heat and allow to cool completely on a wax paper.
Combining Your Flavors
Once you’ve determined your flavors, the easy part is layering them! For this bowl, I used vanilla yogurt, chia seeds, raspberries and toasted walnuts. The kids loved it too!
