Perfect for breakfast, snacking or dessert this peanut butter yogurt fluff bowl is packed with protein and delightfully fluffy.
I’m a creature of habit so when I find a breakfast item I like that’s healthy and tasty I tend to stick with it. Of course I switch things up every so often but during a typical week I have same meal for breakfast 4-5 times. One nice thing is that most of my favorite breakfast options are quick to prepare and easy to change up with different flavors or toppings.
While working out at the gym this morning I started thinking about what I was going to have for breakfast when I got home. I thought about making a protein pancake for the week but out of no where I decided to have yogurt instead. Normally I save yogurt for snacking but it sounded good for breakfast today so I decided to roll with it.
Things got a little crazy once I was home and showered. I pulled out the yogurt and made a delicious fluffy breakfast bowl with peanut butter, banana and a little grain-free granola.
I’m positive this combo has been done before as many people make yogurt bowls for breakfast and top them with fruit, granola and nut butters but I think this is worth sharing. Especially with the added trick of whipping the yogurt together with peanut butter and stevia. It makes the yogurt extra fluffy and voluminous.
To be honest the main thing I kept thinking while eating this (besides how delicious and fluffy it was) was why the heck yogurt companies haven’t jumped on the peanut butter bandwagon? I know I’ve seen peanut butter frozen yogurt and there are so many different flavors of regular/ Greek yogurt – chocolate, apple pie, cherry cobbler. Where’s the peanut butter flavor? OR the peanut butter BANANA flavor?
Now that I know this little fluffy yogurt hack I’m excited to make other fluff bowl flavors. I think a chocolate version needs to happen next!
Add yogurt, nut butter and stevia into a small mixing bowl and whisk together using a spoon until the yogurt gets a bit fluffy. (I’ve only done it with a spoon but I’m sure it will work with an immersion blender or stand mixer as well!)
Portion yogurt into a bowl and top with granola, fruit and an extra drizzle of nut butter. Enjoy!
Feel free to experiment with non-diary yogurt. I bet it would be delicious with full-fat coconut milk yogurt. You can also try it with peanut flour instead of nut butter for a lower calorie option! And of course you get to decide the toppings. Get creative with them.
It makes perfect sense that I like this combination of flavors considering whenever I get fro yo I always get both tart and peanut butter and put fruit on top. Sounds like an odd mix, but I promise it’s good. If you like yogurt and peanut butter, you HAVE to try this protein-packed bowl.
I’m curious, have you seen any yogurt brands that have a peanut butter flavor? If it’s out there, I want to find it. 🙂
