I have to admit that I’ve jumped on board the mason jar craze. I love them!
They are cute and practical and now that you can buy them at Kmart for about $2 a jar they are a total bargain!!
This week I’ve been craving simple, fresh breakfast ideas that I can grab on the go. No matter now organised I try and be the night before, we seem to always be rushing out the door in the morning (I am SO not a morning person).
These little yoghurt pots made in mason jars are the perfect solution. I grab one as we walk out the door and can eat it on the way to school drop off. They are also perfect for a quick snack or cute afternoon treat. I like to combine fruit, yoghurt and a granola based cereal in mine but you could also create ones using fruit puree or nuts.
How to Make Breakfast Mason Jars (Yoghurt Pots)
I haven’t put quantities in the recipe below because it depends on the size of your jar and the ratio or fruit/nut/granola to yoghurt that you prefer.
- Greek or Vanilla yoghurt (pot set and thick is best)
- Frozen or fresh berries/passionfruit puree/kiwi/peach/nectarine
- Granola based cereal or baked muesli/nuts if desired
- Add a few tablespoons of yoghurt to the bottom of your jar.
- Add berries/fruit and then nuts/granola.
- Top with more yoghurt.
- Alternate to the top of the jar.
- Seal and store in the fridge for 2-3 days.
HINT: The granola does loose some of its crunch if you put it directly against the yoghurt overnight but if you sandwich it between fruit it stays crispy.
