Blackberry Mint Lime Yogurt Bowls! Fresh blackberries tossed with lime juice and mint and served over greek yogurt. A healthy, protein packed breakfast or snack.
Sometimes simple really is better. Case in point- these blackberry yogurt bowls that are so easy, they barely require a recipe. But, I’m providing one anyways because #foodblog.
Fresh berries are such a treat. Maybe one of life’s greatest pleasures? I might roll my eyes at that statement if it weren’t for the fact that I have written “farmers market berries” in my daily gratitude journal at least 15 times this summer. Gah, it’s true.
If I were to rank berries on my list of favorites, I think blackberries would fall to the bottom. BUT (and let me explain myself) it’s only because they are too tart when not in season. I enjoy tart berries, but I can’t eat cup after cup of them. That all changes for one quick month when blackberries are in full-swing-sweetness at the market and I start buying as many as I can get my hands on.
A few weeks ago, I found blackberries for less than $1 a pint, so I scooped up 15. At least. I ate as many as I could, then passed the rest onto the neighbors.
While I loved them straight out of the container, they are completely transformed tossed in a bit of lime juice, zest and fresh mint. I took inspiration from one of my favorite cocktails, the blackberry mojito, and figured if it works with rum, it should work with yogurt. (Um, that logic probably doesn’t work anywhere else but this recipe).
You can enjoy these berries on it’s own, but I like serving them over creamy yogurt. I’ve kinda been getting into yogurt lately (especially this organic, grass-fed variety. The best.) but any kind will do. Soy yogurt, coconut yogurt, plain yogurt, greek yogurt, whole-milk yogurt, it all works.
For a bit of added texture, throw in some chia seeds, chopped walnuts or granola. Then, kick back and relax with this simple breakfast (or snack) all summer long.
