I love a good blueberry yogurt.
In fact, it’s right up there with peach yogurt (which you could easily make using this recipe too). I used to get down with all the individual pack yogurts. They are quick to grab on the way out the door to work. I was always told that yogurt was healthy and great for me. But I never looked at the sugar content on the back. Looking at the back of those single serves, I kept seeing 17 grams of sugar and all the way up into the mid 20s. That’s a lot of sugar, especially when most of these yogurt cups are between 150 and 170 calories. Figuring the number of calories you’re getting from sugar (4 calories per gram, 4*17=68 calories), you’re looking at about 45% of the calories coming from sugar.
While I like sweet things, I don’t like when they sneak into foods that are supposed to nourish and help us reach out FitLife goals. So I switched over to plain Greek yogurt and some honey and fruit. I like this option because I feel I have more control over the amount of sugar I’m adding to my yogurt. As I’ve gotten a bit used to the taste of plain Greek yogurt, I’m slowly cutting back on the amount of honey.
Now for the blueberry yogurt recipe.
It’s so simple, you’re going to think I’m crazy for making a whole post out of it, but I love it. And it’s super quick, great for a breakfast or snack.
- 2 cups plain Greek yogurt (I used and really like Chobani, I also like Fage).
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I used frozen here)
- ¼ cup honey (get the raw stuff if you can)
- Optional toppings:
- ½ tsp flax seed
- ½ tsp chai seeds
- ¼ cup granola
- In a blender, combine yogurt and frozen blueberries.
- Blend until mixed.
- Literally that's it, so simple!
