DIY Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt Cups are a healthy makeover of the store bought classic! A 3 ingredient chia seed fruit sauce is made then topped with your favorite yogurt and toppings of your choice!
But I love to throw another idea into the pot because variation makes my breakfast table go around.
My other breakfast love is always a version of yogurt parfait. The creamy yogurt, the sweet fruit and the crunchy granola or cereal is more dessert like than anything. So it fits in my idea of dessert for breakfast. Remember how much we love that?!
While I do love greek yogurt, lately I have been cutting back on my dairy. My fridge is already overflowing with Silk Cashew milk so it was a natural progression to start loving Silk® Dairy-Free Yogurt. With 6 grams of soy protein per serving, it is a plant-powered nutrition that has never tasted so good – or so smooth and creamy! With only real fruit, no artificial flavors or colors, this yogurt alternative fits the bill in every aspect! And not to mention how delicious it is.
For my latest take on yogurt parfaits, I have created a homemade classic of the ‘fruit on the bottom’ yogurt cups that you can buy at the store. But minus a few things. Sugar. Weird ingredients. And only filled with good for you ingredients! Like real, ripe fruit. Chia seeds. Maple syrup. Then a layer of creamy yogurt. Choose your flavor. Silk comes in:
- black cherry
- peach & mango
While I always love a warm vanilla, the peach and mango was my second favorite. For today’s yogurt cups, feel free to use which ever flavor you prefer. Even switch up the fruit in the fruit sauce. Then the fun part comes. Toppings! Coconut flakes, dairy free chocolate chips, dairy free white chocolate, smoked almonds, almond or peanut butter, more fruit, extra chia seeds, granola…the possibilities are endless!
I love to prepare these DIY Fruit on The Bottom Yogurt cups early in the week, then right before serving, add desired toppings (they have a tendency to soften if you add them early). Rather than strawberries, add blueberries with vanilla yogurt and almonds with granola for a fun take on blueberry pie! Or whip up pineapple with vanilla and coconut on top for a tropical, fruity start to your day!
