Berry Muesli Yogurt Bowl. A mixed berry and muesli yogurt bowl is a SUPER easy and healthy breakfast idea! I love making these when I have a busy morning.
This mixed berry and muesli yogurt bowl is filled with fiber, antioxidants, and good protein.
What makes this berry and muesli yogurt bowl healthy
- Greek yogurt
- Mixed berries
Greek yogurt is amazing for your gut health! It contains live bacteria that support the healthy gut bugs that help to digest and absorb nutrients into your body. Greek yogurt is also a great source of calcium and vitamin D. It adds about 12 grams of protein to your berry and muesli yogurt bowl!
Muesli is made with whole grain wheat, dates, sunflower seeds, and other high fiber ingredients. Fiber is so important for your gut health and lowering cholesterol!
I am a HUGE fruit fan! It is a misconception that "fruit is high in sugar." The sugars in fruit are bound up in fibers, making them healthy to eat. Plus, fruit is packed with nutrients including disease fighting antioxidants!
What is the difference between muesli and granola?
Both muesli and granola are typically made with oats, nuts, fruits and seeds. However, granola is then mixed with an oil and a sweetener then baked. Muesli remains unbaked and unsweetened without adding any oils.
If you want to make a berry granola yogurt bowl instead, simply replace the muesli in this recipe with your favorite granola!
Health benefits of yogurt

- Contain live bacteria to support digestion
I am a huge yogurt fan! Whether you are eating it on its own for a quick snack, or adding toppings and making it a meal, it is a great part of a healthy diet! Yogurt is a fermented milk product, so it contains healthy bacteria.
While vitamin D does not occur in yogurt naturally, it is added to most yogurt, making yogurt a good source for vitamin D.

How to prepare a berry and muesli yogurt bowl quickly
First, choose the yogurt you like. Add the yogurt to a bowl.
NOTE: if you are vegan or vegetarian, you can substitute a coconut or plant based yogurt. Make sure you add some seeds or nuts to the top to make up for the protein difference.
Next, add the mixed berries. If you are using frozen berries, you can either thaw them the night before or you can thaw them quickly in the microwave.
Finally top your yogurt bowl with muesli!

NOTE: if you don't want your muesli to get soggy, keep it in a small separate container.
Other healthy breakfast recipes:
Is yogurt with berries and granola healthy?
Yes! Yogurt with berries and granola can be healthy! But, there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to sugar content. We should only be eating 25 grams or less of sugar per day. Look for plain or low sugar yogurt. I like to use plain greek yogurt and then add a little honey in to the taste I like. Also, try to buy either unsweetened or low sugar granola. Some granola is made with a TON of sugar.
How do you make a good muesli bowl?
If you don't want your muesli with yogurt, another muesli breakfast idea is to eat it with milk. Add 1 cup muesli to a bowl and add ½-1 cup of milk. You can use any kind of milk that you like. Allow your muesli to soak 30 minutes or overnight. The longer you let muesli soak, the softer they will be. Serve your muesli with fruit, more nuts and seeds, or nut butter.
How do you serve yogurt with muesli?
There are so many ways to eat muesli! You can serve muesli raw with yogurt and berries. Or, you can soak muesli with milk (See above). Another way to serve muesli is cooked over the stove like you would do with oatmeal!
Does muesli reduce weight?
Yes! Muesli can reduce weight. Muesli is made with high fiber ingredients like oats and nuts. When you eat more fiber, you stay full longer. Fiber also helps to reduce cholesterol levels! Just make sure you buy muesli without added sugar!
Which is better muesli or oats?
Muesli is better than oats because it has more variety! Muesli is not just oats, but it is oats with nuts and seeds added in. Make sure you purchase muesli that has no added sugars for the greatest health benefits!
Can I eat muesli everyday?
Yes! You can eat muesli every day for a healthy breakfast. Muesli is super high in fiber, which is excellent for your health in so many ways, namely gut health.
