Granola, Fruit, and Yogurt Bowl (GF, DF*) + My Top Yogurt Picks

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, but some mornings I find myself in a bit of a pinch when I hit my snooze button one too many times. So here is a super easy and healthy breakfast idea I like to call GFYs (“jiffies”) – granola, fruit, and yogurt bowls – because, well, you can make them in a jiffy.

Packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, GFYs are the perfect way to start off your day. Along with the bowl I made this past week, I’m going to recommend my top yogurt picks.



The components of my latest GFY is strawberry coconut yogurt (dairy-free), a handful of blueberries, a couple strawberries, half a banana, and just a sprinkle of granola. It’s important not to go overboard on the fruit and granola because they can pack in more added sugars and calories than you think.

When selecting yogurts, I look for non-GMO, organic brands with as few ingredients possible. Depending on how my body and GI system is feeling, I may or may not opt for a yogurt with dairy. Coconut milk is used as a base for a tasty non-dairy alternative. There are also soy milk, almond milk, and lactose-free varieties.
