Y’all know that I love yogurt bowls. I love them especially when you add a swirl of peanut butter or almond butter or you could even do Erin’s new Macadamia butter. They are just my favorite food in the world especially when I don’t have much time to make something that takes more than 5 minutes of work. Yogurt bowls can be a way of putting love and art and care into one tiny bowl with very little work. 😀 That’s what happened today when I was really hungry, but I really didn’t feel like doing much more than yogurt and toppings. That is how this ‘Maple Crunch Chocolate Strawberry Yogurt Bowl’ came about; by necessity.
I have a sweet tooth; I don’t know if that will change, but I more regularly opt for sweet foods over salty or savory foods. However I do like some good nachos or a good burger, but I’m usually the most excited about a big bowl of sweet oatmeal or cake and ice cream. 🙂 It’s all about the balance. 🙂
Granola (I used Nicole’s Blissful Eats Maple Nut Crunch Granola which is by FAR the best Grainless granola out there. I actually like it better than granol with oats because it’s crunchier.
A Swirl of Peanut Butter (You can use any kind you want.)
Siggi’s Yogurt (Siggi’s is just SO creamy. It’s hard to beat the sweet, tangy, creaminess of Siggi’s. When Siggi’s isn’t on sale I sometimes go for Greek God’s or Stonyfield or Mountain High, but Siggi’s is my favorite.)
I mixed the Siggi’s with a bit of Greek God’s Plain Yogurt, but you can do however much you want.
Strawberries (because strawberries are on sale everywhere right now, and they are SO sweet!)
Before I go into the actual details of this simple yogurt bowl recipe, I wanted to share some verses I’ve been thinking on lately. I so often lack in love for others, that it makes me examine myself and really think, ‘Do I know the love of God for me that sent His only beloved begotten Son? Does that influence the way I love others?’ Why do I not love others? Is it because I haven’t meditated and thought on just how much God has loved me?
‘ Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 8 He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 11 Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.’ (1 John 4:7-11)
It especially stung in a good way when John writes that if we can’t love those in front of us how can we love God whom we can’t see? Ouch. That one is one I’ll be thinking on for a while.
Well, now let me share how I constructed this yogurt bowl so you can do it too. None of this is sponsored (I always disclose when something is sponsored, but I just wanted to reiterate that!)
I would say that the swirl of nut butter is what made this dish pretty scrumptious. The swirl hardened into a soft chocolate shell that was distributed throughout the yogurt so you got part of the swirl in every bite.
Maple Crunch Chocolate Strawberry Yogurt Bowl
A creamy bowl of yogurt with the perfect balance of crunch, juicy summer strawberries, creamy chocolate, and silky nut butter.
- 1 container Siggi's Mixed Berry
- 1/4 cup of your favorite plain yogurt
- 1 tbsp. Chocolate Coconut PB (Or another kind)
- 2 tbsp. Blissful Eats Maple Granola
- 4 strawberries
- 6 Teddy Graham mini cookies
- 1 square Salted Almond Butter Dark Chocolate (I used the Chocolove Brand)
- Mix together your yogurts. Swirl the peanut butter into it. Then sprinkle the granola over. Place the Teddy Grahams wherever you want them. Slice up the strawberries and arrange or you can just cut them in half. Break off a square of the chocolate and you can either leave it in one square or break it up and sprinkle it through the yogurt.
- Enjoy the bounty!
