Lon’s mom and brother got us 10 ounce mini trifle dishes. So instead of throwing yogurt and fruit in a bowl, like I’ve been doing most mornings, I decided to make a Breakfast Trifle. Why spend the extra time and effort? Because treating yourself to something special makes you feel good. It’s like wearing sexy underwear, even if no one will see it. Secondly, it looks like a dessert. Not only is that fun, but mental satisfaction allows most people to eat less. Yet, the Breakfast Trifle can be as healthy as you want it to be.

My Breakfast Trifle

  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries, divided
  • scant 1 cup Trader Joe’s 2% Greek Style Plan Yogurt, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped cherries, divided
  • 2 rounded tablespoons of Honey Bunches of Oats

I put 1/4 cup of chopped strawberries on the bottom, then 1/3 of the yogurt, then 1/4 cup of chopped cherries, another 1/3 of the yogurt, then Honey Bunches of Oats, the last of the yogurt, topped with the rest of the strawberries and cherries.

There are SO SO many variations you could make, based on your preferences or whatever you have at home. Use your favorite yogurt. Use chopped peaches. If you don’t want to chop, use blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries. Use granola or another cereal. Use toasted almonds or pecans. Add honey if you’ve got a sweet tooth. You get the idea.

Treat yourself to a sexy breakfast!
