Greek Yogurt with Berries, Nuts and Honey




I've never been a fan of yogurt until I discovered Greek yogurt. I love the slightly sour taste it has topped with some fresh berries, sweet honey and some nuts for texture. I swear I feel like I am eating something bad! It's like having dessert for breakfast yet, so healthy with the added benefits of protein and active probiotic cultures which are great for your intestines. I am starting to see Greek yogurt everywhere now, in Trader Joe's and even my local supermarket carries Chobani which is what I used here.



Greek Yogurt with Berries, Nuts and Honey
Serving:
1 Time: 2 minutes Old Points: 4.5 pts • Points+: 6 pts
  • 6 oz. nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 cup fresh berries
  • 1 tbsp (.25 oz) crushed walnuts
Place yogurt in a dish, top with berries, nuts and honey. (5 pts plus without the walnuts) Granola would taste great too.

  1. I am a fan too - starting straining my own yogurt to make it, MUCH cheaper. There's a link on the left sidebar on my front page if you're interested but nothing much to it really. The reduction also increases the protein substantially so a good bang for the buck and you can use regular or low fat yogurt - just get a good one with the active cultures in it.

    I love mine with walnuts and honey. YUM!!

  7. Gina, for the real Greek yogurt experience, strain the yogurt overnight in cheesecloth or a fine metal sieve. The thick yogurt, honey, berries will transport you to Greece!

  11. What's also really great is adding 1 tsp. jam to the yogurt and 1/2 cup of Kashi Go Lean on top - adds 2 points but it's a great alternative to granola (it feels like the same to me!) and packs a good fiber/protein punch.

  12. Never added jam before but I'm sure it would taste great! I'll give that a try next time!!

  20. This was very tasty and filling. I use Greek yogurt in place of so many things but I also love to eat it with fruit and this added just the right kick.

  21. I am also a recent convert to Greek yogurt. This stuff tastes amazing! I will never eat other yogurt again if I am faced with the choice between the two. I love eating this stuff with honey, blueberries, and granola. I am a runner who just over the past 6 monthes became quite serious and I love eating this pre and or post run (easily digested) .

  22. Do you know the calorie info for this?

    1. It will depend on what brand on Greek Yogurt you use. The range is 160-200 calories. I use Fage with raspberries and walnuts which comes to 280 calories.
