We just love those ‘sit down and breathe’ moments. You know the ones. It’s just you, and you have, for once, got a minute to yourself.
Those moments are so rare, they’re worth celebrating with a few quick and delicious homemade indulgences.
Whether it’s your mid-morning snack, after dinner treat or part of your lazy Sunday morning routine sitting in the sun with your coffee, these homemade yogurt topping ideas are sure to take you away from your everyday life, and into a peaceful place for your ‘me time’.
We love homemade goodness (yes, it’s kind of our thing), so we’re sharing our top six fresh and delicious homemade topping ideas for your yogurt treats. They are super delicious, and just a little bit indulgent.
This is one of the easiest toppings to make. Maybe its 8pm, the kids have gone to bed and you just want a quick treat. Pop some walnuts in a pan with a little bit of maple syrup and a touch of salt. Cook and stir until the syrup caramelises. Then chop them up and sprinkle them over your favourite EasiYo. That’s it - 3 minutes, and you’re back on the couch, enjoying the moment.
You’ve never made homemade muesli? You have to start! Super easy, super delicious, and so much better when you’ve made it yourself.
You’ll figure out your own favourite recipe, but here’s a quick and easy way to get started. Lay plenty of rolled oats, a nut selection, shredded or desiccated coconut, and a sprinkle of cinnamon onto some baking paper. Bake until it starts to turn golden. Then cool, mix in some dried fruit and store in your favourite jar. Sprinkle it on top of your yogurt, and you’re ready for a crunch explosion.
Rhubarb, apples, plums, peaches? Everyone has their favourite preserved fruit, and their favourite way to add them to a meal or snack. A little sweet and a little sour, they are the perfect match with a dollop or two of yogurt for your after-dinner treat. And the great thing is, it doesn’t matter what the season is, as your preserved fruit will last in your kitchen cupboard across the year.
Ok, this one will definitely be a crowd pleaser. All the goodness of nuts and honey, with a little added chocolate treat. Coconut will take you to the tropics, the nuts add some crunch, and the honey and chocolate, well they will just take you to indulgent heaven with a little added sweetness.
Simply toast the coconut and almonds, drizzle with honey, add those chocolate bits for a little extra indulgence, and serve the lot on a bowl of your favourite yogurt.
If the season is right, fresh berries are always a favourite. In some seasons, you can even pick your own, making it a real ‘home grown’ experience. Out of season, the frozen ones are pretty good now too.
Choose your berry, add some oven-roasted nuts (almonds or walnuts are perfect), chop them up and sprinkle over your favourite yogurt flavour. For a little sweetness, just drizzle with honey. Healthy and delicious.
Most nuts and seeds are high in protein so why not keep a jar of roasted nuts and seeds in your kitchen cupboard to sprinkle over your go-to after gym breakfast, or use as a snack when your tummy is grumbling.
