Frozen Berries and Yogurt

This post is less of a recipe than (what I think is) a brilliant bring-to-work food idea. Like many of you, I’m sure, I don’t have an easily accessible refrigerator near my office, which means that most of what I bring to eat should taste good at room temp. As hot or cold temperatures can reduce flavors a bit, I happen to love most food in that middle zone. Yogurt, however, is not one of those foods for me, and warm yogurt is something that I just cannot get into… SO, I created this amazing concept of packing yogurt onto frozen berries. The berries keep the yogurt cold but have thawed by the time I’m ready to eat. How great is that?! I toss the berries in salt, cinnamon and/or ground ginger for some extra flavor and top the yogurt with nuts or cereal. To the new breakfast al-desko!

  • 1-2 cups frozen berries (I use a mixture of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 ounces whole or 2% plain greek yogurt
  • Toppings – almond, walnuts, flax seeds, cereal, etc.

In a jar or any container with a lid that seals, shake the berries, salt and spices together. Dollop the yogurt on the berries, and top with nuts, seeds, or cereal. Let the container sit at room temperature for 2-3 hours, then enjoy!
