What other ingredients can I add to my breakfast yogurt?
Fruit and granola? That gets boring if you have it pretty often, especially if you have it on weekends as well. I get so bored of adding the same fruits all the time, so I went full-on research mode and stalked hundreds of interesting yogurt combinations that are better than just blueberries and yogurt. Here are some of my favourites.
Yogurt Apple Pie

The guiltless version of an apple pie. Create a cute dessert out of it by adding it to mini cups of tart shells (you could get them at Phoon Huat)
Ingredients: Yogurt, ground cinnamon, chopped apples, sprinkle of raw sunflower seeds
Effort level: Easy
Matcha Kiwi Yoghurt
I’m an incredibly huge fan of anything Matcha, Matcha yoghurt, cookies, cake, granola… you name it and I’m there. If you’re not a Matcha lover, you can also create any flavoured yogurt – just mix the desired powder with yogurt. I’ve yet to try curry flavoured yogurt though.
Ingredients: Yoghurt mixed with Matcha powder, pounded peanuts, kiwis, sprinkle of Matcha powder.
Effort level: Easy
Superfood Combination With a Hint of Chocolate
On days I know I’m not going to be getting much greens, I try to make it a point to stuff myself with antioxidants and fibre from non-greeny sources. I absolutely love cacao nibs because it’s chocolate without all the sugary stuff added. It’s 70% cocoa solids and high in antioxidants.
Ingredients: Yoghurt, Chia Seeds, Coconut Flakes, Cacao Nibs
Effort Level: Super Easy (no cutting required)
Granola & Dried Berries
When I’m hard pressed for time, I’ll get a small cup of yogurt from 7-11, mix matcha granola some dried berries at work for a quick breakfast.
Ingredients: Yogurt, matcha granola, berry nut mix
Effort level: Huh? What effort?
