This breakfast yogurt is a great help when it comes to boosting your immune system, your metabolism, and powering up your day.
I first posted this recipe in 2011, but I felt like it needed to be updated. It’s so good, I certainly didn’t want to delete the recipe. I mean, you totally should try it! It’s delicious!
It’s filled with healthy superfoods like oatmeal, wheat germ, flaxseed, fresh lemon juice, and honey.
Made without any refined sugars, all natural, low calorie, full of nutrients, and totally delicious, it’s a great way to start the day.
Have you heard of these yoat bowls? I guess they are the new weight watchers cool “food is fuel” thing, and they sound delicious. My lemon honey yogurt is my version of a yoat bowl. It’s yogurt and oats mixed together to make a delicious breakfast!
What you’ll need to make this
To make this healthy breakfast, you’ll only need only a few simple ingredients. So, let’s look at these ingredients and see what’s going on…
Yogurt is full of probiotics or good bacteria. These bacteria are naturally occurring as a result of the culturing process. Regularly consuming probiotics can help with digestion. Just make sure that the yogurt you buy contains live bacteria by looking for the “Live and Active Cultures” seal on the package, because the probiotics can die if the yogurt is processed.
Yogurt is also loaded with protein, as well as essential minerals like calcium and magnesium, and vitamins like vitamin B12 and vitamin D.
For this recipe, I prefer thin European-style yogurt rather than the thicker Greek-style. Also, plain or vanilla yogurt will have fewer calories and added sugar than flavored yogurts. But, feel free to use you favorite.
Lemon juice provides a nice tartness to the yogurt, is high in vitamin C, and thought to help aid in digestion. And, this breakfast is one of the many reasons my friends and neighbors can never give me too many lemons.
Besides being super-tasty, honey is a natural sweetener.
Eating locally produced honey may even help alleviate some allergies, as your body gets to build immunities to the local pollen.
I’ve often talked about how I love honey, and that I have a collection of different honeys for different recipes. Feel free to use any honey you have for this recipe, it doesn’t have to be a specialty honey, just regular wildflower honey will be delicious here!
Oatmeal is a whole grain, high in complex carbohydrates, and has lots of B vitamins. Consumption of (affiliate link) Oatmeal can lower blood cholesterol, because of its soluble-fiber, and thereby reduce the risk of heart disease. And, oatmeal encourages slow digestion and stabilizes blood-glucose levels.
Wheat germ (affiliate link) is a concentrated source of several essential nutrients including Vitamin E, folate (folic acid), phosphorus, thiamine, zinc and magnesium, as well as essential fatty acids and fiber.
The “germ” of a grain is the reproductive part (the embryo) of the seed that germinates to grow into the plant. You’ll find this in well-stocked grocery stores usually in the cereal aisle near the oatmeal.
Ground Flaxseed Meal
May also be called (affiliate link) Flaxseed Meal or Ground Flaxseed, is high in omega-3 fatty acids and dietary fiber, and may lower cholesterol levels. Because the flaxseed is ground into meal, the nutrients are available to the body, whereas if the seeds where whole, very little of the nutrients would be absorbed. Looking for other recipes using flax, Flax Seed Bread- Non Wheat Focaccia.
Nuts add crunch, body, and great flavor to this breakfast.
They’re a good source of vitamins E and B2 (riboflavin, an antioxidant), and are rich in protein, folate, fiber, and are a great source of energy.
I love the flavor of the toasted pecans. Try other nuts as well – walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pine nuts, whatever you have in the kitchen.
By the way, I like to store nuts in the freezer so they last longer.
Can I make this ahead?
Yes, this is a great option for meal prep!
To make my week a little easier, I make up several bowls full of the dry ingredients on Monday morning so that all I have to do is add the wet ingredients right before I eat.
You could even package the measured dry ingredients in little bags, and the wet ingredients in small containers to take to work with you. Then, mix them together while you’re at your desk.
Kick start your day
Packed with protein, vitamins and minerals, and beautiful citrus flavor, this creamy and delicious Honey Lemon Breakfast Yogurt is a great start to your day. It’s nutrient-rich and will give you the boost power you need to get going in the morning.
