When I need a quick, easy breakfast, this Greek Yogurt with Berries, Nuts and Honey is my go-to!

I love the slightly sour taste of Greek yogurt, although you can use any plain yogurt here.

Topped with fresh berries, sweet honey and some nuts for texture, 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.

  1. All your recipes say How many CARBS are in them at the top. Is that GRAMS of CARBS per serving? Thanks. Following a diabetic diet…

  2. I never thought i would like plain yogurt. But this is AMAZING and only 250 calories!!! Its a great breakfast for when I’m to lazy to make a smoothie! 10 out of 10 would recommend!!

  3. I love your recipes!

  4. Can you substitute the fresh berries with frozen ones, if making the recipe ahead of time?

  5. Perfectly balanced breakfast/dessert/snack. Simple for moms on the go and could easily be made ahead for the week. I like to add a dash of nutmeg. <3 Thanks always for easy, healthful, awesome recipes.

  6. Oh my goodness. I am never going back to sweet flavored yogurts again. (well maybe in a pinch) I was so nervous to try this because the thought of plain greek yogurt is well… just gross. But I tried it and it was delicious. I don’t taste the tang of the yogurt. I just taste delicious sweet and a bit of salt. I used strawberries and cut mangoes along with 16 pistachios. Pure heaven. Thanks so much for giving me the strength to eat plain greek yogurt.

  7. I made this for breakfast and was very pleasantly surprised. It’s a keeper!

  8. Wondering about a dairy free alternative to greek yogurt?

  9. Weight Watchers is for sure 4 points for 1 TBSP of Honey and 2 Points for the 1 TBSP of Walnuts.  Gina, can you correct this?  This with Chobani Fat Free and In season fresh mixed berries – great way to start my day!

  10. Can you please explain to me what the letters 5B, 8G, 5P stand for? Rather new at this. Thank you.

  11. I eventually got used to eating plain yogurt and if you want to skip the honey, sprinkle it with cinnamon. It adds sweetness without adding points.

    I also use full-fat yogurt and just eat less of it. 3/4 c is 4 pts on WW Blue. I put in a ton of berries and then just a few other “point” items to get 5 points and I’m nice and full.

  12. I have never eaten plain greek yogurt by itself.  I usually just add it to recipes and eat flavored greek yogurt like Triple Zero. But the pictures looked so good I knew I had to give it a try.  I have been so addicted to your overnights oats recipe, so I kept postponing this breakfast.  Now I have a new fave to choose from because this was awesome!.  The tanginess of the yogurt with the sweetness of the honey and the crunchy from the nuts was a perfect balance.  This is going into my regular rotation.  Plus it can be made up the night before so I can just grab it as I run out the door.  Thanks!!!

  13. How do you only get 5 BP for this? My Tbsp of honey alone was 4 pts and I used a plain greek gods brand greek yogurt. The whole recipe ended up being 11 pts!

    • Was your yogurt nonfat? That should be zero points, along with the fruit. I also get 4 points for the honey, and 2 for the Tbsp of chopped walnuts, so I end up with 6. But I personally felt it was sweeter than I needed, so I will drop it to 2 tsp of honey next time.

  14. Boy, wouldn’t life be difficult without plain greek yogurt? Love your site! You’re a big help to me in my health journey.

  15. This is one of my favorite breakfasts. I love trying it with different ingredients. So yummy!

  16. I did not think I would enjoy this but I’m so glad I tried it because it’s really good! I used granola instead of crushed walnuts just so I can switch up between the two this week as toppings and it was so good! The honey gives it just the right amount of sweetness without overpowering the other flavors. Definitely cuts the sour taste of the greek yogurt. 😋

  17. I subsituted fresh dates or figs for the honey. I cut them up really small, almost like sprinkling tiny oats onto the yogurt and berries.  Fresh (not dried) figs are zero points.  As is Greek yogurt and berries.  I’m not entirely sure how the zero point thing works but this would be a zero point snack or breakfast.  

  18. Recently made this for breakfast. I was surprised at how filling this was. I used 1 cup fat free yogurt, 1/2 oz chopped pecans (didn’t have my phone to look up your recipe so it was 7 pts total) and blackberries with 1 TBSP local honey from my favorite honey man! So much yum and an easy make ahead and grab breakfast. Love your meal plans and recipes! Thank you!

  19. yes,Love It

  20. The honey that I have is 4 F/S points for a tbs. & I’m showing walnuts as 2 for a tbs. Can someone help me out with this? I’m having a lot of problems losing & I’m trying to stay on track & motivated! Thanks!! 

  21. My daughter suggested adding banana.  Delish! 

  22. Can you make this the night before? If so, how many days can you make at a time?

    • I do it the night before and it holds up great. I make sure I layer it so the yogurt and honey go on the bottom, then the fruit, then the nuts because I thought the nuts might soften if near the yogurt. 

  23. This came out to 6 FS pts for me because one T honey is 4 and one T of nuts is two. Am I doing something wrong in my calculations? You listed it as 5. It was delicious btw!!

    • Hi Shari! The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

      • Hi Gina!  I did what you said by creating a recipe and it still says 6 smart points. Are you sure you have it calculated right?

  24. I am allergic to garlic – is there something else that I could use. So many recipes call for it.

  31. So tasty! I add a little bit of sugar free cool whip to mine too because I’ve never been a huge fan of yogurt and it tones it down some 🙂

  32. What are the nutrition facts?   Usually you have them posted.  Thank you

  34. Hi!  What is the calorie count on this recipe?

  35. hi, can I ask what honey you would use? as there is loads of different ones

  36. Do you know the calorie info for this?

    • 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.

  37. 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) .

  38. 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.

  39. i use regular greek yogurt and add berries and cinnamon – it is my favorite meal of the day!!!

  40. You are a points plus wizard! this is going be be a dessert or breakfast very soon.

  41. Just made this for breakfast…delicious! I have made so many of these recipes and every one of them has been great. I appreciate all your hard work on this website Gina!

  42. I'm so happy to hear that!! And I understand because I have a passion for food as well!!!

  43. I have to say this….I found this website right after Thanksgiving so I decided I would try dieting ONE MORE TIME….the recipes are so delicious and "down to earth" that I have been able to stay on my diet…after only 1 month I have lost 12 lbs. Thank you so so so much for sharing these recipes!!! Eating has always been a "hobby" of mine and I didn't have to give up my hobby just to be on a diet!!!

  44. try Sarabeth jam with the greek yogurt…so good!!

  45. I just discovered Greek yogurt myself. It is a terrific substitute for sour cream. I've been using it on tacos and potatoes!

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

  47. 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.

  48. Oww instead of honey have you tried agave nectar? Soo good.

  49. Yes, same points with plain non fat yogurt.

  50. can i just use plain non fat yogurt, not greek yogurt and get the same points?

  51. 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!

  52. I am a recent convert myself and I will never go back to plain boring yogurt again!!

  53. I’ll have to try it, that looks delicious, Gina!

  54. Greek yogurt is the only yogurt I like too. Those berries look so juicy!

  55. I love greek yogurt with honey…so Im sure I would enjoy it your way too! 🙂 THX!

  56. Mmm, what a yummy treat!

  57. 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!!

  58. Now that looks delish!!
