These easy yogurt breakfast bowls are the perfect way to start the day --- the Superfresh organic honeycrisps are sauteed with dragonfruit and ginger for a pop of color and flavor!! Then they're topped with a drizzle o' honey and crunchy granola.
Don't you just love January?!
There's a sense of newness. And of hope. And of I-can-do-anything-ness.
All the heaviness of the holidays is over, and we can start fresh. Last week, I talked about how I like to ADD things into my diet and life instead of restricting / depriving.
Let's ADD breakfast daily.
You've heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and for good reason. it sets the tone for the day and stabilizes your blood sugar after a night of "fasting." A combination of healthy fat, protein, and fruits/veggies is my go-to.
Let's ADD more apples.
Annnnnnnnd they're great for snacking --- as is, dipped in nut butter, or on a super fun charcuterie board.
Let's ADD more movement.
First a confession, I don't love exercising. I just don't. I know... endorphins. You become addicted. it's sooooooo aweseome. Well, for me, not so much.
I have to choose to exercise daily. Because I know it's good for me, for my body, and for my mind. So for those of you who might be in a similar boat, just add 20 min of something every day. Run a mile or two. Lift some weights. Do some squats. Just do something. I've been loving Emily Schromm's 21 day challenge lately --- she sends 20 min workouts daily to your inbox. They're challenging, yet doable. And I'm feeling great!
But back to yogurt bowls...
What makes this particular yogurt bowl so gloriously pink is the dragonfruit. Most of you probably haven't had it before, but I highly recommend adding it to your meals every so often. It's chockful of antioxidants and nutrients -- like magnesium and fiber and vitamins B2 and C! So, where did I get this neon pink fruit? At Wholefoods --- they sell frozen dragon fruit puree in 4 serving "smoothie packs"! You just add them directly into the pot to saute with the apples.<---- easy, peasy! Or you can buy it fresh when it's in season.
Check out the video below and see just how easy it is to make!!
As for yogurts, be sure to find one that is high in protein and has no added sugar. I've been loving Siggi's plain Icelandic yogurt (it's similar-ish to Greek yogurt). It has simple ingredients (Pasteurized Whole Milk, Pasteurized Cream, Live Active Cultures) and has 25g of protein per serving and only 5g of sugar.
Happy breakfast-ing, friends!!!

Easy Yogurt Breakfast Bowls with Apples and Dragonfruit
apple yogurt bowls | dragonfruit breakfast recipes
*I like buying the dragonfruit / pitaya smoothie packs from Whole Foods in the frozen fruit section. It looks like this. They come in 4 ounce packs, so for this recipe you just use half.
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the apples, dragonfruit puree, water, and ground ginger. Stir frequently for about 5 minutes until apples are softened.
- Assemble your yogurt bowl: 8oz of plain yogurt, a large spoonful of the apple mixture, a drizzle of honey, and some crunchy granola.
