Healthy breakfast fast food doesn’t have to mean hitting a drive thru. This summer, give this light and simple make-ahead breakfast recipe a try.
I’m thrilled that the temps have really started to warm up here in the Bay Area. Now that I’ve got my base tan going, I’ve got summer on the brain and I am ready to jump back into creating some new summer inspired recipes.
My schedule is already filling up throughout the next few months so I’ve been brainstorming some ways to meal prep ahead of time so I have plenty of grab and go options for the busy weeks ahead.
I know meal prep is so hot right now, and while I totally get the purpose of it, I often find that I get bored with eating the same old grilled chicken and veggies for every meal. I’ve been thinking quite a bit lately about ways to not only bring some new life to my go-to lunch and dinner recipes, but also about simple, healthy breakfast and snack recipes that are fast, yet satisfying.
Make Ahead Blueberry Frozen Yogurt Bark (for breakfast or snacking!)
While shopping at Target the other day these new Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Spreads caught my eye. I liked the idea of a fruit spread that was naturally sweetened with honey instead of artificial sweeteners, so I grabbed the blueberry lemon flavor and threw it in my cart. Lucky for me, it landed next to one of my fridge staples, Dannon Oikos greek yogurt, and my latest breakfast meal-prep idea was born.
Yogurt is a great grab and go breakfast option, but you know what’s even better on a hot summer day? Frozen yogurt. I decided to make a frozen yogurt bark that was swirled with Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Spread and topped with fresh blueberries.
We’ve got protein. We’ve got calcium. We’ve got antioxidants and vitamins. You know what we don’t have? Artificial ingredients.
Sounds like an awesome breakfast that will power you through a busy morning if you ask me.
What’s even better about this recipe is that it’s so delicious and refreshing, it also makes a great healthy snack or dessert. I’m pretty sure if my mom fed me this when I was a kid, I’d think I was getting a major treat.
The recipe could not be simpler. All you need is a sheet pan and a freezer.
I added a little extra zip to mine with the addition of edible glitter, because I feel like summer is something to celebrate! Get creative by adding sprinkles, chocolate chips or other fun surprises. The recipe is fully customizable.
