The colorful fruits supply healthy doses of vitamin C and antioxidants while the yogurt adds a calcium and protein boost. Unlike presweetened yogurts, we use raw honey (reminder: never feed honey to infants under age 1) for a sweetness that’s not overly cloying.

Try one for breakfast or a healthy snack today.

Ingredients

1 quart plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
1 cup blueberries, rinsed
1 cup fresh strawberries, rinsed and sliced
1 cup jarred cherries
4 teaspoons honey
