Honeyed Blueberry Yogurt

This isn't much of a recipe, just something that I used to eat as a snack a lot when I was pregnant and that Luc now likes. It makes for a healthy and tasty snack, breakfast, or dessert. You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries for this concoction. I used frozen today, which is why the whole thing is so purple. Because of the honey and the nuts, this recipe is only suitable for babies over one year. If you worry that the berries might pose a choking hazard for your little one, if you are using frozen berries, they are easy to mash into the yogurt with a fork once they thaw.

Honeyed Blueberry Yogurt 

- 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt (or use plain and add a dash of vanilla extract)
- 1/4 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
- honey, to taste (you will need a little more with frozen as they tend to be    
 more sour)
- small palmful chopped almonds (if you have a little extra time, toasting the almonds makes it extra  yummy)

Mix yogurt, blueberries, and honey well in a bowl. Sprinkled with almonds. Enjoy! 

Will keep in the refrigerator a couple days minus the almonds (as long as it hasn't been eaten from as saliva breaks down the yogurt).

Variation: Substitute apricot preserves for some or all of the honey. 


  1. Michelle, I think you mean honey as your third ingredient.


    And I didn't know saliva breaks down yogurt! As from now on, I won't be a lazy eater digging directly for the container. Thanks to you.

  2. ooops! Thanks for that, you can tell I was quickly typing while a wild little munchkin was running around!
