When I fall in love with something new, I get the worst kind of tunnel vision… can’t-eat, can’t-sleep, can’t-focus-on-anything-else excitement because this is so amazing! (Just kidding about the can’t-eat part. I can always eat.)

So I disappeared last week because I got so obsessed with something so shiny & new that I just couldn’t make myself sit down and write a post. Doesn’t mean I don’t love you just as much… I just got a little sidetracked for a few days. Oops. Better focus next time?

To make up for it, I’m sharing my new everyday breakfast favorite! Eating ice cream for breakfast and actually feeling great about it is the dream, right? Absolutely yes.

One bowl and less than 5 minutes makes your own bowl of breakfast ice cream. Frozen blueberries thaw and melt into the creamy yogurt, creating a dreamy, beautiful lilac soft-serve. The berries have plenty of natural sweetness, and I love topping my bowl with granola for some crunch!

This is endlessly adaptable to your favorite flavors. Don’t like plain yogurt? Have strawberries in the freezer to use up? Mix ’em in! Larger pieces of frozen fruit will take longer to thaw and thicken the yogurt.

I was craving ice cream the other night after dinner, so I may have thrown a bowl together and topped it with chocolate chips instead of granola… not saying you should, but you definitely could. And it’s crazy delicious.

This can fit right into anyone’s nutrition plan at just 175 calories. The type of granola will have the biggest nutritional impact, so make sure to check it! I love Pumpkin Flax Granola from Nature’s Path; it’s not too sweet and has lots of fiber. The nutrition info below uses this granola and the other ingredients are all Kirkland brand from Costco.
