I changed blackberries for the blueberries because that's what I had on hand. I left everything else the same. I was looking for something quick for lunch that would supply the energy I needed before getting going with the kids again. This was perfect on a hot day! I paired it with a tall glass of iced tea and I was in heaven. Read More

This not only tastes good, but is good for you. I recently got into using wheat germ and it's great with fruit and yogurt. I used bluberries, strawberries and replaced the banana with raspberries. I used fat free greek vanilla yogurt and topped the whole thing off with a little honey. This is a great breakfast that you don't have to feel guillty about. Read More

Delicious! First I added some agave in 1 cup of fat free plain yogurt, which I prefer instead of vanilla flavored yogurt, then I layered the yogurt, granola, wheat germ and fruits (I omitted the banana). Very good and not too sweet. Read More

Absolutely wonderful! You can add a little jazz by mixing 1 1/2 tsp - 1 tbs of honey to the yogurt before you start layering! Adds a little sweetness =) If you use local honey, it also helps with your allergies! Read More

We've been enjoying this for years. I use fat free Greek yogurt, whatever berries are in season or frozen and I add slices of kiwi. Sometimes I just toast old fashioned oats if I have no granola. Dieter's dream, looks good, satisfies, and it is healthy. Thanks for posting. Read More
