Bliss Yogurt Bowls will make mornings blissful again, but aren’t just for breakfast. Today I have something a little different for you, a recipe that has no recipe. Yes I know sounds a little funny but like many of the recipes I share I share them to inspire others. Ones that give an idea but can be customized to what you like, want, and need. Recipes where you can have it your way and could have the same thing every day without it ever been the same as the day before.
The second post in a series we’re doing for Mother’s Day of simple easy to make recipes little ones can make for mom and activities to pair with them. You don’t have to be a mom to enjoy any of these recipes and they are all mom approved! There is another giveaway as well so head to Instagram and check it out!
Next weekend I’m hosting a Mother Daughter Yoga and Brunch event at Athleta and we will be having yogurt bowls so for today’s activity pairing we are pairing Bliss Yogurt Bowls with yoga. I love reading reviews on Yogurt Nerd to help me create many different types of yogurt bowls.
Yogurt bowls, you mean parfaits? Well kind of and really I don’t know if there is a real definition or difference. In my mind parfaits are layers and all pretty. Yogurt bowls don’t have to be pretty, are more fruit focused in our house, and we often blend yogurt with fruit too.
These easy to make yogurt bowls are gluten free, vegan and paleo friendly as the ingredients used are to you! Customize your creation using our suggestions below for a healthy and delicious breakfast or snack.
They’re a combination of yogurt (whatever works for you, we all have our favorites in our house), fruit (fresh, frozen, and or dried), granola or muesli, nuts, seeds, nut butters, sweeteners, superfoods. Pretty much the only requirement I guess is that there is yogurt of some sort, a lot or a little the choice is yours. You can make them ahead for a grab and go breakfast, just see notes as some ingredients will soften if layered ahead so add those just before enjoying if you want them crunchy.
Not sure we could pick a favorite combination as they change depending on the day, our moods, and what we have going on that day but here are the versions we whipped up one morning.
My yogurt bowl is a combination of coconut milk yogurt (Coyo), pitaya smoothie packet (Pitaya Plus) swirled into some of the yogurt, diced fresh mango, granola (Bliss Gourmet Cherry Almond Granola), and toasted coconut chips (Bare Snacks Toasted Coconut Chips).
S (my oldest, aka chia princess) layered almond milk yogurt (Kite Hill) with some she blended with frozen mango, sliced fresh strawberries on the bottom and top, some chopped fresh mango, and chia seeds (Navitas Organics).
A (my youngest and mini me) layered plain yogurt (Siggi’s, she doesn’t have issues with dairy) with yogurt she blended with fresh blackberries, swirled in more blended blackberries, banana slices on the top and bottom, granola (Bliss Gourmet Cherry Almond Granola), and a couple more blackberries. Pretty sure she used a whole pint of blackberries in hers!
Again these Bliss Yogurt Bowls don’t have a recipe so I’m sharing 3 versions the girls and I made today to inspire you but look forward to seeing and hearing about what combos you come up with! There is no right or wrong way to make them and are fun to make. Little ones might need help cutting fruit or blending (if they’re like my girls like pushing buttons and watching things when they were little). They can mash berries or fruit with a fork, stir things, sprinkle, whatever they come up with will be perfect. Let them get creative (if sharing your creation on social media tag A Whisk and Two Wands on Facebook or miss whisk on Instagram or Twitter)!
This is also a great way to get kids involved in the kitchen, the bananas don’t need to be cut perfectly so let them do it themselves with supervision if they are old enough. They will not only learn how to do things but it will make them happy to make something for mom themselves and their little creation will melt a mama’s heart.
|Prep Time||5+ minutes|
- 2-8 oz yogurt
- fruit (fresh, frozen and/or dried)
- coconut, nuts, seeds
- nut butter
- granola or muesli
- superfood powders
- agave, honey, sweetener
- chocolate chips, candy, sprinkles
- Pick your ingreidents! Ingredients listed are just suggestions, the only real requirement is yogurt since it is called a yogurt bowl. The kind and amount is up to you.
- Prepare fruits or ingredients that need to be prepared. Blend or mix yogurt with fruit, nut butter, or flavorings if desired.
- Assemble your yogurt bowl. Layer, swirl, mix, again there is no right or wrong way to do this.
- Grab a spoon and enjoy!
See our yogurt bowls above for inspiration but there is no right or wrong way to make a yogurt bowl.
Yogurt bowls can be assembled ahead for a quick grab and go breakfast. Just note that granola, muesli, nuts, seeds, and some ingreidents will soften if layered ahead of time. If you want them to stay crunchy sprinkle on top just before enjoying.
Like it, PIN it for later!
