Breakfast Yoghurt with Banana & Dark Chocolate

Dark Chocolate // Amy Elizabeth

I am bad at eating breakfast. At school and university I was religious in my breakfast-eating, adamant that I couldn’t function in the morning without a bowl of cereal or a slice of toast. However, somewhere in my working life I have got out of the habit and more often than not it will be lunchtime before I eat. It’s not always because I would prefer an extra ten minutes in bed (although I would). It’s more often because I find breakfast foods completely unappetising in the morning. However expensive the granola, it always feels a bit cardboard-y.

That said, I think I have found a solution in this breakfast yoghurt. It’s very much a copy of Leon’s ‘Yoghurt of the Gods’, which I picked up on a trip back from London earlier in the summer. It’s easy to assemble, sweet enough to satisfy and the dark chocolate adds a lovely texture and bitterness to this otherwise unnervingly soft dish. There’s something about being allowed to eat chocolate for breakfast that just makes it appealing – but I can feel vaguely virtuous as it’s dark chocolate and that cures heart attacks, or something. This doesn’t really count as a recipe, but I wanted to share the combination in case there are other breakfast-averse folk like me out there, searching for a solution. 

What do you eat for breakfast? I would love more suggestions!

  • This looks tasty! I definitely eat breakfast out of habit and the need to have enough energy to walk to work, but tend not to actually enjoy it! I always go for porridge with strawberry jam and an apple chopped in, but recently I’ve found a love for wholemeal toast topped with nuttella and a sliced banana 🙂

    • I really want to like porridge – but I just can’t get on board. I used to love it as a kid, maybe it’s time to give it another go. I can never get the texture exactly right, plus I’m pretty sure it’s not healthy with spoonfuls of golden syrup to make it palatable!

    I am terrible at eating breakfast as well! There was a time I would just re-heat the food from yesterday from breakfast (bad huh?). Then during my first two years at uni, I would simply eat chocolate every morning (just when you thought it doesn’t get worse). But lately I have come to the habit of just eating yoghurt with fruits and I really like it 🙂 I cannot stand having bread in the morning (or ever really) so this is right down my aisle and I think I will try it this week! xx
