This yummy non-fat greek yogurt sundae is bursting with vanilla berry flavor and topped with granola. It's gluten / wheat free and sugar free, too! It takes minutes to prepare and is a terrific high protein breakfast or snack.
When to Have Me Yogurt Berry Sundae
I have this dish for breakfast regularly especially during warm months. It's a no-cook, easy, and pretty health food that also tastes unbelievably good.
While it would also make an excellent snack or really light lunch or dinner, it's a breakfast food for me and Beck also exclusively. Yes, I'm stuck in a rut with it, but I like that rut a lot!
It's amazing to me how well the flavors and textures meld together to make a filling meal. While it doesn't look very big, it's a full cup of Greek yogurt, a full cup of berries, and a couple of tablespoons of granola. That's plenty to fill me up, and if you haven't heard me say it repeatedly already, I have a huge appetite for a small woman.
All You Do Is Mix, then Layer
Me Yogurt Berry Sundae is simplicity in a cup or bowl. While I'm using an etched glass sundae container for this photo shoot, I've also been known to use a regular bowl.
All you do is mix the yogurt with cinnamon, vanilla and monk fruit powder. Then, you spoon a third of the yogurt mix into your eating container. Add blueberries to make a layer. Next, add more yogurt mix. Then, add raspberries to make a layer. Last, you add granola. I use Easy Me Baked Granola when I have it on hand. But, any low-sugar, low-fat granola will work since you only use two tablespoons.
Quality Ingredients Make a Difference
I use organic raspberries and organic non-fat Greek yogurt. Since the yogurt is non-fat, if you want to save money, this is a good ingredient to have as non-organic. I also use organic blueberries at times, but I can't always find reasonably priced organic blueberries.
Since yogurt is a key ingredient of this sundae, it's going to be pretty difficult to make it vegan and still have it taste good enough to eat. Maybe you have a vegan yogurt substitute you like and can recommend, but I've yet to find one that's worth eating. If you've found a good one, please be sure to shout out the name in the comments.
Specialty Diets and Allergens
This sundae is already gluten / wheat free, nut free, and egg free. It does have dairy. It's also sugar free and is sweetened with monk fruit powder.
If you aren't familiar with monk fruit powder, I recommend my post For the Love of Sugar: Addiction and Natural Substitutes. Monk fruit powder is to taste because I've noticed you need a little more of it to get the same sweet taste as you continue eating it.
It's vegetarian and is suitable for the Trim Healthy Mama (THM) eating plan as an E. For both balanced eating and THM you'll need to use granola that contains five grams or less of fat. If you're not familiar with Naturally Happy Healthy Me's Balanced Eating plan, then I recommend the post Balanced Eating: Stop Dieting While Losing Then Maintaining Weight.
This recipe isn't suitable for keto. It has too many carbohydrates and not enough fat.
Have You Tried Me Yogurt Berry Sundae?
This is another recipe that is simple and easy enough for a child to create. You can also substitute other fruits in equal amounts to the blueberries and raspberries.
What are your experiences with pure monk fruit powder? Have you tried other fruit combinations? What are your favorites?
