With the new year, it is time for some new breakfast ideas. I love granola, and while I haven’t been making it often lately, it can be a fantastic breakfast addition and very easy to make.
As you may know, you can enjoy granola in many different ways—make snacks with it or even yogurt parfaits.
Super simple, and these breakfast bowls look beautiful.
I often struggle with breakfast ideas, and granola with yogurt is a great option for active and busy people who don’t have a lot of time but want to have a balanced breakfast.
This granola bowl is very easy to customize; add your favorite nuts, seeds, fresh or dried fruits.
I’m excited to share with you an amazing new product, Two Good™Greek lowfat yogurt. This yogurt tastes perfect and comes in a few different flavors like Vanilla (my favorite), Strawberry, Blueberry, Peach and Mixed Berry.
You can purchase it at your local Target store. I got some Two Good yogurt in Vanilla, Blueberry and Peach flavors on my recent trip at Target. I enjoy shopping there because of the quality of the products they offer and cleanliness of the store. Are you excited to try it? Check out SpoonSomeGood.com for more information and ideas how to serve the product.
Two Good has two grams of total sugar, 12 grams of protein and 80 calories per 5.3 oz. serving. It delivers the deliciously thick and creamy taste you love, without a lot of that sugar you’re trying to avoid.
Why does this yogurt have less sugar?
Two Good has 85% less sugar than average yogurts because it’s made with a unique slow-straining process that removes sugar from the milk, leaving 2g of total sugar in each cup*. This process allows Two Good to remove most of the sugar from the milk that’s used to make yogurt. You can learn more on their website.
