Peanut Butter Blueberry Yogurt Bowls

When I’m in need of quick and easy plus delicious and nutritious, I love coming back again and again to a combination like these Peanut Butter Blueberry Yogurt Bowls.  The ingredients are likely items that you have in the refrigerator or pantry already, and certain ingredients can absolutely be substituted for what you have on hand!

The Plain Greek Yogurt – Use whatever variety you love!  I enjoy a nonfat option but a full fat choice would be delicious as well.

The Cereal – This is mostly for texture and crunch, but I do really love the flavor profile of a Wheat Squares or Wheat Waffles option.  A similar cereal of choice or a granola would work here as well!

The Blueberries – I love the Frozen Wild Blueberries for their small size and the way that the juices melt into the mix, but if you prefer to use fresh give it a go!

The Peanut Butter – I love a peanut butter that includes the taste of salt.  For me, having that ever so slight sweet and salty combination makes all the difference, which is why in my particular ratios I tend to go pretty heavy on the peanut butter!

I’ve linked all of my personal brand recommendations within the ingredient list, but the point of this easy peasy meal/snack is that it’s customizable to your preferences!

Servings: 1

Ingredients:

Plain Greek Yogurt

A Wheat Squares Cereal

Frozen Wild Blueberries

Peanut Butter (preferably unsweetened and one that includes salt for optimal flavor)

Last week our temperatures rose to nearly 100° and it’s only April!  When the heat is that intense, the kitchen becomes filled with iced (decaf) coffees, margaritas, and of course, smoothies.  This Healthy Sherbet Smoothie is a new favorite!  It’s super thick like a shake, only requires 4 ingredients, and is both protein and vitamin-rich.  It makes for a great snack to beat the heat!

Ingredients:

1 Serving Frozen Peaches (approx. 1 cup)

1/2 Cup Lakewood “Orange & Carrot” Juice

Berry & Peach Sunbutter Smoothie

This high protein smoothie is nearly a milkshake it’s so thick and creamy, but that’s my preference when it’s functioning as a meal!  It’s perfect as a filling breakfast, post-workout recovery fuel, or a mid-afternoon snack.  If you’ve ever loved the addition of peanut butter in your smoothies, this offers a very similar flavor profile in the way that it compliments the fruit and the yogurt.  The added bonuses are that it makes it more allergy friendly as well as nutritionally diverse if you’re looking to mix up your ingredients!

Ingredients:

1 Serving Frozen Strawberries (approx. 1 cup)

1 Serving Plain Greek Yogurt (I used nonfat)

1/2 Cup Apple Juice

2 Tbsp Sunbutter

1 Serving Frozen Peaches (approx. 1 cup)

Directions:

Add the strawberries, greek yogurt, and apple juice to your blender and blend

Add in the Sunbutter and blend again

Add in the frozen peaches and blend a third time until smooth and evenly combined

Enjoy!

Whenever I have produce that needs to be used up, I personally love to have a recipe on hand that doesn’t require an extra trip to the store. I prefer being able to pull from my pantry staples!

These cups make the perfect grab-and-go breakfast, afternoon coffee pairing, or dessert when warmed back up in the microwave and topped with vanilla ice cream. Their texture is a blend of a muffin and a bread pudding, and they’re not overly sweet! They’re also super quick to bake up so no planning ahead is required!

1 Cup White Whole Wheat Flour + An Extra Tbsp

2/3 Cup Sugar

In a large bowl stir together the rest of the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder

Melt the butter, then stir that in as well

Gently stir in your blackberries

Add the cinnamon and vanilla extract and carefully stir

Fill the 12 muffin cups. They will be around 3/4 full
