Lusciously creamy FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt is topped with crumbly, refined sugar free, Blueberry Apricot Granola.
Last night I spent way too much time going through packs of strawberries at the grocery store. Each pack seemed to contain about 50% ripe (yet misshapen) strawberries and another 50% blemished and bruised ones. I know this is terribly wrong, but, I stood there and entertained the idea of trying to switch out the bruised/blemished ones in a pack with the ripe/misshapen ones in another in order to end up with a whole pack of ripe strawberries. I didn’t do it, but if I had telekinesis, I probably would have!
While I might not be able to find a pack of unblemished, unbruised, ripe, regularly shaped strawberries, these days. I know I can always find my favorite Greek Yogurt no matter where I shop.
One of my favorite breakfasts is a bowl of rich and creamy FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt with crunchy, crumbly, granola like this Apple Walnut Granola and this Cranberry Coconut Granola and today’s Blueberry Apricot Granola. I simply love how rich, creamy and tangy all-natural FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt is.
Lately, my daughter has been enjoying gobs of FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt on top of her breakfast tacos. Protein-rich FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt keeps us both fueled and full all morning! Some nights, we enjoy a bowl of FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt with honey for dessert, because, clearly FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt can make #PlainExtraordinary

Getting back to this Blueberry Apricot Granola, this is such a simple granola to whip up. While I grabbed a package of half edible strawberries, I opted to use dried blueberries and dried apricots for a natural sweet kick. Spiked with cardamom and cinnamon, this granola uses the old egg white trick to get those large chunks in it.
