I too has a yoggit

I've been sent some Total Greek Yoghurt to try.  And OHBOY is there a lot of it...

So, this morning, I started the day with some porridge; oats, agave nectar, raisins, strawberries, water and some Greek yoghurt:-

  • 50g large, good quality oats
  • 125ml water
  • 20g raisins
  • 100g chopped strawberries
  • 15g light agave nectar
  • 60g 0% fat Greek Yogurt
Place oats, water, raisins, chopped strawberries and nectar in a bowl and gently mix in a bit.  Microwave on full power for 2 minutes.  Remove from the microwave and stir.  Microwave on high again for a minute, watching out for overflow!  Remove from the microwave and stir in the yoghurt - it helps to cool it down a little from super-heated :o)  Serve and enjoy.  (it's pretty calorific, but all really good (could probably lose the nectar and it'd still be really nice) and a 4:1 ratio protein to carb which is great race fuel - 386 kcals, 17.4g protein, 73.6g carbohydrate, 2.7g fat, 5.7g fibre, 1.7 portions of fruit and veg)

The strawberries and yoghurt bring a summery, creamy lightness to what is usually quite a wintery feeling breakfast.  And the yoghurt brings a huge boost of protein into the mix.  Very happy with this one indeed.

There's going to be a lot more yogurty recipes to come... got lots to get through!


  1. Oooh I want yoggit! that looks lovely and creamy!

  2. Yum! Hope you enjoy that cake recipe, I'll be posting a great muffin recipe later too x

  3. Yummy! It's nearly porridge time again (I tend to have meusli in the summer) and I can't wait. I love your blog by the way :-)

  4. Gonna scoff me that exact same porridge again tomorrow morning for the final triathlon of the year. It sat really well and kept me full for hours, so should be good race fuel :o)
