This delicious and healthy yogurt bowl is perfect for a refreshing summer breakfast or anytime treat. It's creamy and dreamy with a touch of honey, some fresh blueberries and granola.
Need a new twist on your yogurt routine? I guarantee this easy yogurt bowl will knock your socks off with black raspberry goodness. (If you're already a black raspberry fan like me, you can add this little gem to your collection.) 😉
I first learned about dried black raspberry powder a couple of years ago since I could never find fresh black raspberries in my local area. If you are lucky enough to have them growing around where you live, definitely go for the fresh ones over the powder (and also, I am super jealous!!)
But if you're like the rest of us who don't have access to these delightful and irresistibly scrumptious berries, this powder is as close to the real thing as it gets. After all, it's just the real berries, dried and powdered. Bonus: they are a powerhouse of antioxidants with disease-fighting potential.
Did you know? Black raspberries are actual a separate, unique fruit from blackberries or red raspberries, although their texture and taste is roughly similar.
You only need 5 ingredients in this recipe, and they're all super flexible. I love using plain Greek yogurt and adding in a little raw honey for some sweetness, but feel free to substitute vanilla yogurt instead of honey! And as mentioned above, definitely use fresh black raspberries if you can find them, but if not, the dried version is pretty darn magical tasting. Oh, and any fresh berries will work to top the bowl, along with your favorite kind of granola. I love fresh blueberries or strawberries with chocolate almond granola.
See recipe card below for exact quantities.
Assembling this bowl takes just minutes and a few easy steps.
First, mix the yogurt, honey and a teaspoon per serving of the black raspberry powder in a mixing bowl, or simply use the same bowl you'll be eating it out of to save a bowl. The raspberry powder will dissolve and incorporate as you stir it all together.
Then, wash and dry the blueberries and top your yogurt bowl with fresh berries and granola.
Feeling extra fancy? Feel free to garnish your bowl with a mint sprig or two before serving.
If needed, feel free to make any of the following substitutions:
- Greek yogurt - use non-Greek whole-milk yogurt or Skyr instead
- Honey - substitute vanilla yogurt for the honey-sweetened plain yogurt
- Black raspberry powder - use fresh black raspberries if you can find them (they usually grow in the wild), or just skip and top your yogurt bowl with other fresh berries
- Blueberries - substitute strawberries, blackberries or a mix of fresh berries
As written, this yogurt bowl is vegetarian and gluten free. Here are some variations you can make depending on your own needs:
- Vegan - use plant-based vanilla yogurt and skip the honey
- Grain free - use a grain-free granola such as Paleonola
- Sugar free - use an alternative sweetener such as allulose or xylitol in place of the honey
- Kid-friendly - use a little extra honey for added sweetness, and let kiddos choose their own toppings for a fun yogurt meal
I used the following items for this recipe:
- mixing bowl
- mixing spoon
You can store the black raspberry yogurt and fresh berries separately in the fridge for up to 4 days, and then top with the berries and granola just before eating.
