Yes, ladies…the title reads correctly. I am pretty health conscious, and a yogurt lover. Except, I just could not continue with greek yogurt, the taste would not grow on me. However, a coworker shared a recipe from her trainer and it actually was really good! Give it a shot if you’re looking for a nutritious, filling breakfast.
- 1 32 oz tub of fat free, plain Greek yogurt (I used Dannon)
- 2.5 cups of oats (I used the Great Value Quick Oats)
- 1/4-1/2 cup of fat free milk or almond milk
- fresh berries (I used strawberries and blueberries)
- honey to taste
- Mix Greek yogurt, oats, and milk in large bowl
- Mix in fruit (about 1 cup)
- Add honey to taste now, or when you serve out your individual portions
- Let sit overnight in fridge
- Portion out your servings for breakfast each morning
I was told the fruit and honey could be added either before the yogurt mixture sits overnight or in the morning. I just did it all at once b/c I’m lazy and this way it will just be ready to go. The big thing is let the mixture sit overnight so the oats become chewy and the ingredients set in with one another.
Hope you like it!!

Overnigth oats. Very good. I used to do these all the time. I prefer steal cut so its more chewy
Also, fat is not your enemy. I find nonfat greek yogurt not good, but 2% is great.
Another idea is to mic pumpkin with greek yogurt and add pumkind pie spice. Its sooo good. lots of fiber and protein.

@ThreeMeers: Thanks for the heads up on the 2% fat Greek Yogurt. I also wondered about that, but the oats I bought did have 3g of fat (.5 saturated) per serving, so I thought that would help in that area. Not going to lie, I try to cut down the fat as much as possible, with still getting some, but I know that doesn’t always make the most balanced meal/snack then.

@MadTownGirl: Why cut down on fats? The research shows that its not fat, but sugar and processed white carbs (which acts as sugar) that is the problem.
Fat is helpful to feel satiated, absorb nutrients, etc

I love Greek yogurt, but save it for snacks. I love Omega eggs for my breakfast!

@ThreeMeers: mm I love adding pumpkin purée to mine! I have this delish pumpkin pie spice I add. Top it with some granola, and mmmm I wish it were fall.

@ThreeMeers: I know, but it’s weird for me. It seems like fat, not sugar and carbs, is what packs on the “real” extra pound or two for me. But I’m guessing it’s one of those things that each body works/breaks down things slightly differently. I definitely admit, I don’t religiously count calories, fat, sugar, etc., I just try to eat as healthy as I can. But I’m not perfect and there have been many times I reach for a Lean Cuisine or Wendy’s cheeseburger when a craving strikes!

@MadTownGirl: just made your recipe today – I snuck a taste and it’s already very good! Pretty thick but I think that’s how it’s supposed to be?
