1. Start with yogurt of your choosing.  Low fat or nonfat is best. Choose Greek, Australian or regular, it doesn’t matter which style you prefer. And there are so many kinds to try!  Plain is the best, but flavored is all right too.  Just watch the sugar content because it increases with the various flavors.  Although, dairy contain naturally occurring sugars which you also have to take into account (about 12g per 6oz serving).

2. Next, add your favorite fruit. Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, bananas, pineapple, dried cranberries or raisins. It’s up to you!

3. Add a whole grain. Choose granola, oatmeal or other whole grain cereal.

4. If you want add other things like sliced almonds or chocolate chips too.  Mix and match!

Eat and Enjoy!
