Get outta here with that twee crap

One of the easiest and healthiest things you can eat for breakfast is yogurt. But regardless of whether it comes from Greece, Iceland, or the US, it’s kind of boring. Admit it. Have you ever woken up excited to eat yogurt for breakfast? Even if you’re the type to buy the big container and add fruit and granola to your morning yogurt, it’s still pretty boring. Yogurt bowls and smoothie bowls, and even plain old smoothies, are fine, but after a few days of eating them even they start to seem overdone. 

So you need to find a yogurt dish that will bring you joy. And while you can just revert to the old parfait standby, your day will be a hell of a lot brighter if you enjoy your breakfast. Who doesn’t like to think they’re eating dessert all the time? With that in mind, here are some new yogurt recipes that make eating yogurt for breakfast more exciting than just peeling back a foil lid and convincing yourself you like the taste and texture of questionable fruit. Whatever you do, just don’t eat your yogurt in public.
