Another big reason to work produce into breakfast: It's rich in fiber. That stuff keeps you full, so you're less likely to feel famished later. For an added shot, sprinkle on chia seeds –they're mini fiber dynamos.
- 4 c. sliced strawberries
- 1/4 c. orange juice
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- 2 1/2 c. plain 2% Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp. matcha (powdered green tea; optional)
- 2 tbsp. granola
- 1 tbsp. toasted unsweetened coconut flakes
- Combine 4 cups sliced strawberries and 1/4 cup orange juice. Let stand until berries release juices and turn a deeper red, about 20 min.
- Stir in 1 Tbsp chia seeds, and let stand until seeds plump, about 5 min.
- Whisk 2 cups plain 2 percent Greek yogurt with 1 tsp matcha (powdered green tea; optional) until smooth.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Spoon about 1/2 cup strawberries into each of 4 tall glasses, followed by 1/4 cup yogurt and 1 Tbsp granola (preferably low sugar). Repeat layers.
- Top each with 1 Tbsp toasted unsweetened coconut flakes.
