(160 calories | 2 1 1 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
Turn plain yogurt, slices of ripe banana, wheat germ, vanilla and honey into an easy, healthy and delicious banana cream "pie" breakfast!
I've been having fun this summer trying to come up with tasty & delicious ways to enjoy yogurt for breakfast, so imagine my delight when I came across this fun recipe for a banana cream "pie" yogurt on Mireille Guiliano's French Women Don't Get Fat website. (I feel like this brings me full circle since this experiment all began with the discovery of Mireille's Magical Breakfast Cream in her The French Women Don't Get Fat Cookbook.)
Mireille claims to have been served this "banana cream pie" by a French friend who learned of it during a visit to San Francisco. She thought it was "yummy" and intended to recreate it for friends back in New York. (Don't you just love how recipes get passed along?)
Skinny on Banana Cream Pie Breakfast Recipe Notes
Plain yogurt (especially Greek yogurt) seems to really get me off to a nutritious and satisfying start, especially when combined with fruit. And this is a truly yummy way to enjoy it for breakfast or as quick and easy snack or dessert.
With just a few ingredients, you can stir this "banana cream pie" yogurt together in minutes. If you don't like plain Greek yogurt, feel free to substitute whatever kind of yogurt you like best. (Just remember to adjust the Weight Watchers PointsPlus accordingly.)
