What to serve Tropical Granola Yoghurt with Fruit in?
We made ours up in a large glass and shared between the 2 of us but you can make them in smaller individual glasses if preferred? Or use a cup, pot, jar or bowl instead.
Is it Yoghurt or Yogurt?
We are in the UK and the correct British way of spelling is Yoghurt….. however, I did notice on the carton (Tesco’s, UK supermarket) that they actually spell it Yogurt, which is the American spelling. Whichever you use, do not worry it is the same thing, different spelling!
Tips to present breakfast yogurt granola neatly in a glass?
No cooking involved in this one, so simple anyone can make it! See the step by step guides below to keep it neat we use a disposable piping bag or simply snip the end of a food bag if you don’t have a piping bag? Fill the bag with your chosen curd flavouring ready to pipe.
Now simply add yoghurt in the base, a layer of granola, then pipe the curd around the edge of the glass, do not pipe a whole layer of curd as it will be too much!
Then repeat the process again, yogurt, granola and curd.
Finally, another layer of yogurt, use the back of the spoon to spread it gently over the curd layer. Now neatly place granola in a crescent moon shape and put your fresh fruit in the space that is left.
Lastly, pop a few more dollops of curd on top to finish off.
The endless options for Granola, Curd and Fruit
We chose tropical granola which has sultanas, dried papaya, pineapple, banana chips and coconut flakes. But you can use any granola or use muesli instead?
We used a fat free Vanilla Yoghurt, but any flavour, or natural, Greek Yoghurt will work as well! You don’t need to use fat free either!
We used Passion fruit curd from Cherry Tree it has a delicious tropical taste, which works great to give a summer feel. They also sell loads of other flavoured curds, choose your favourite? Or you could use Jam, Honey or compete instead!?
Already to go, grab a spoon and tuck in!

Can I make this for breakfast the night before?
This is best served straight away, the granola will go soggy if made the night before. You could cut the fruit and pop the curd in a bag and store sealed in the fridge ready to make it quicker in the morning
