Looking for something on the sweeter side first thing in the morning? Then this combo is a great option for you to consider. Get creative with a few simple additions like cinnamon, ground flax seeds, chia seeds or grated ginger to name a few!
Greek yogurt is a high protein breakfast item that also contains probiotics. Probiotics are good for the gut because they help maintain the population of the good bacteria in our gut. Plain Greek-style yogurt can pack in anywhere between 10–18 grams of protein making it a great addition to your morning routine.

Layer all ingredients in a bowl the night before you plan to enjoy for breakfast to allow frozen berries to thaw. If making to enjoy immediately microwave berries for 20–30 seconds before adding to yogurt.
Need more protein than what the serving size has to offer? Consider adding a half scoop of protein powder or an additional ½ cup of Greek yogurt.
