How to make tropical yogurt breakfast bowl

To make this Greek yogurt breakfast bowl yogurt, you will need to start by preparing your ingredients.

Begin by dicing up fresh pineapple into bite-sized pieces, and set it aside.

You can also toast some coconut flakes in a dry skillet for a few minutes until they turn golden brown, to add a crunchy texture to your breakfast bowl.

Next, you can prepare the base of your breakfast bowl by combining Greek yogurt and coconut milk in a bowl.

This will create a creamy and rich texture that’s perfect for mixing in other ingredients.

Adjust the ratio of yogurt to coconut milk based on your preference for a thicker or thinner consistency.

Once you have your yogurt mixture ready, you can add a tablespoon or two of chia seeds which will thicken up your breakfast bowl as they absorb the liquid.

Mix the chia seeds into the yogurt mixture and let it sit for a few minutes.

Now it’s time to assemble your breakfast bowl. Spoon the yogurt mixture into a bowl, and add the diced pineapple on top.

Garnish with chopped nuts, such as almonds, cashews, or macadamia nuts, to add some crunch and protein to your breakfast.

Drizzle some honey and fresh orange juice over the top of your breakfast bowl, and sprinkle with the toasted coconut flakes.
