Freshen up breakfast or snack time with a cantaloupe bowl topped with Greek yogurt, blueberries, granola, and a drizzle of honey.
After going on a hike with a few friends yesterday, I got back to our house and was staaarving. You know what’s better than breakfast? Second breakfast. So, I was committed to throwing something together to satisfy my hunger and also quench my thirst. There’s nothing quite like fresh juicy fruit after spending a couple hours trekking up a mountain in the sun.
Among the many items on my to-make list was the cantaloupe bowl. I’ve seen this a couple times, and it just looks oh-so-beautiful. It was the perfect time to try it out because 1. minimal effort, 2. so refreshing, and 3. healthy. At first the idea of eating an entire half of a cantaloupe seemed excessive, but I really love cantaloupe, so I quickly pushed that absurd thought out of my mind.
After cutting the cantaloupe in half that I picked up, I spooned out the seeds from the middle. Then I added about 3/4 cup of plain Greek yogurt. On top of that, I decided to sprinkle some granola, fresh blueberries, and a drizzle of honey (to combat that sour taste of plain Greek yogurt, bleh). It was seriously the best combination.
I’m in love with this bowl of fruit and yogurt perfection. I plan to try different toppings in the future because the possibilities are endless. Keeping it pretty basic with granola and blueberries was divine though.
- 1/2 cantaloupe, seeds scooped out
- 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 2 Tbs granola
- 8+ fresh blueberries
- 2 tsp pure honey
- Cut small section off bottom of cantaloupe half so it won't roll around. Place core side up on plate.
- Pour yogurt into center. Sprinkle granola and blueberries on top. Drizzle with honey.
If you’re anything like me, don’t violently scoop out the cantaloupe. I may or may not have almost flung a piece at one point. The effort is by far worth the sweet taste of the dish though.
What are your favorite yogurt toppings?
Have you ever made fruit into a bowl of sorts? Matt made me an amazing chicken and rice dish with an Indian sauce and put it in half of a pineapple a few years ago – it was quite impressive. Somehow everything is just better when in a fruit bowl.
