Yoatgurt? Yes!

I’m officially a yoatgurt fan!

Janetha, you’re a genius :)

I’ve been seeing this breakfast all over the place lately, and I finally bought some more greek yogurt this past weekend just so I could try it.

My first bowl of yoatgurt was pretty simple, but delicious!

  • 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, pinch salt, cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup or so greek yogurt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp *new* almond butter!

I love bananas with greek yogurt, and I love them in oatmeal. This was the perfect mix! I really liked being able to have just cold bites with the yogurt/banana or hot bites with oatmeal – plus, you can mix it all together and it’s even better ;)

My new almond butter is one I’m really excited about. On our way from my parents’ to Nick’s parents’ this weekend, we stopped at the Trader Joe’s in Newport News :)

We were out of Kona coffee anyway, but I got a lot of new stuff, including this almond butter with roasted flaxseeds. It’s so crunchy from the almonds + flaxseeds, and I’ve decided that I like salted almond butter the best. Not too salty, but just a pinch makes a world of difference.

And  did you notice the natural light in these pictures? Spring is coming!!! It’s getting lighter just a little earlier in the morning and that makes me happy.

 

Have you tried yoatgurt yet? What are you waiting for?!?

    I have used yogurt as a frosting on oatmeal, but the idea of a full portion kind of weirds me out–don’t know why.
    I love TJ’s almond butter but crunchy flax seeds always make me go blech. I wish they were ground :-( Then it’d be such a hit with me! Maybe I should throw it in the food proc?

    I just can’t seem to jump on the yoats bandwagon – I find them a bit baby food and a bit blah to be honest. Which is weird because they contain all my favourite foods in the world! I’ll stick to my classic hot oats with almond milk for now!

    (Yours do look beautiful though!!)

    I still don’t get it, what is yoatgurt???? Is it just overnight oats with yogurt stirred in?

    • Brandi replied: — February 24th, 2010 at 1:33 pm

      not overnight oats – HOT oatmeal paired with COLD yogurt. I wasn’t sure how I would like it, but it was tasty! The best of both worlds when I don’t want a totally cold breakfast.

    I love Yoagurt!!!! It’s phenomenal. Your’s looks divine with the AB and banana. I really want to try that TJ’s AB. gonna have to stop by and grab some at some point. I love adding a little protein powder to the oats after they cook. Great staying power!

    That’s my absolute favorite almond butter at the moment! We’ve gone through a jar in about 10 days, which is super fast, considering someone else in our house usually doesnt like almond butter!

    That almond butter and the peanut butter of that kind is awesome, the flax seeds give it the best texture

    That Janetha is a genius right? The Yoatgurt is such a winner!

    Glad you had the chance to hit up a TJ’s. I am planning my trip in a few weeks and have already placed this almond butter on my list. I love a little salt too! :)

    how funny is this, i am eating yoats right NOW! as i read this! i put a little maple syrup in there and i am trying barney butter for my first time! (thanks lauren) your yoats look amaze, loving the natural light. and i WISH i had a TJs just for those flax nut butters! i cant find naturally more almond butter anywhere. i agree, a little salt in my almond butter makes me happy.
