I'm always looking for quick, easy and healthy options for breakfast. After years of practice, I've finally found my system for making smoothies when I only have a few minutes. However, that can get a little boring, always eating your breakfast through a straw. I wanted to come up with something delicious, healthy, as well as pretty (I find pretty food inspiring). Figs are in season right now, along with pepitas (pumpkin seeds). I decided to find seasonal ingredients that I could mix into my morning yogurt. Also, I love an excuse to photograph figs. Always.
Autumn Yogurt With Figs & Honey | Serves 1
- 1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt Of Your Choice
- Fresh Figs, Halved (1-2)
- 1/2 Tbsp Raw Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- Honey (drizzled to taste)
Pretty straight forward. Scoop your yogurt into a ramekin or bowl of your choice. Add all the indgredients on the top of the yogurt, drizzling the honey to taste. For an extra treat, try roasting the pepitas in the oven with a wee bit of olive oil and salt...just for 5 mins or so, then add to yogurt. Mix it all up (or don't) and enjoy!
As you can see above, my Corgi puppy named Walter got to lick my bowl afterward. He is so cute I couldn't tell him no! I hope you enjoyed the recipe, and will add it to your morning routine every once in awhile...it's really very good and lovely to look at as well.
