The perfect summer breakfast...

Yes, this my favorite summer breakfast fare. Nothing fancy, but quick easy, fresh and local. So I pretty much am addicted to Chobani Greek yogurt now and have it for breakfast at least 4-5 times a week. But the summer brings a bounty of fresh local fruit and I snagged my first lot of raspberries. So I snapped a pic, and am sharing this less than 300 calorie sweet and oh so good for you recipe that has endless possibilities.

6 ounces non fat Greek yogurt
(Chobani brand for sure)
2 packets Splenda
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1 tablespoon granola

You can substitute Vanilla yogurt, but use only 1 packet Splenda.
the options are endless with your fruit---always use fresh and local in the summer--can't wait for the local peaches...

Hi Debbi and Happy Summer!
I am with you in gobbling up all the fresh fruits and veggies I can! We have a huge bowl of NW cherries on the counter for our nibbling. I am waiting, patiently, for the Michigan peaches. I have never tasted peaches like they have here.
Our weather has been so wet, chilly and cloudy that our farmers market has not opened and so that means none of their fabulously sweet, sweet corn or their tomatoes! :( I eat their tomatoes like an apple.

I am going to try your recipe, probably with the cherries..

Love your banner!
