Keep your immune system flourishing and get your daily supply of vitamin C on those cold winter days with this amazingly delicious Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl. It is packed with high protein greek yogurt, chia seeds, yummy granola and nutrient dense pomelo and pomegranate winter fruit!
If I am being completely honest, I’m not much of a yogurt person. It needs to be really delicious to entice me into eating a bowl of yogurt versus a nice warm breakfast like this HEIRLOOM TOMATO BOWL WITH GOAT CHEESE GRITS. But – boy did I hit the nail on the head with this healthy greek yogurt breakfast bowl! The sweet, tangy pomelo and pomegranate winter fruits pair perfectly with a crunch of fresh granola and chia seeds. I love adding a slight bit of coconut as well for a little tropical flair on those cold winter days (anyone else dream of the warm sun hitting your face on these frigid winter days?) If that wasn’t enough, you don’t even notice the protein-dense greek yogurt is the base of this delicious yogurt bowl after it is drizzled with a little DULCE DE LECHE caramel sauce. Ahhhh! I am getting hungry just thinking about it!
Pomelos, also known as the pomello, pummelo, pommelo, Pamplemousse, jabong, or shaddock, are a unique citrus fruit that typically light green or yellow in color and primarily harvested in the winter months. Like a large grapefruit, they are becoming a more popular winter fruit, but don’t make an appearance as often as other citrus fruits because their plant takes 8 years to mature before it produces fruit. The pomelo has a thicker rind that most of its cousin winter fruits, making most of it disposable. However, once you get down to the delicious pink fruit, you’ll notice that it doesn’t quite have the same tart mouth puckering tang of a grapefruit. Instead, you’ll find a nice juicy, sweet flavor that is addicting! If you can eat an entire pomelo, it will contain 600% of your daily vitamin C and 25% fiber intake. It also has fat burning enzymes that can aid in weight loss that are not found in many fruits. Check out 7 Impressive Benefits of Pomelos for more info.

Here’s how I cut a pomelo and make a Healthy Greek Yogurt and Winter Fruit Breakfast Bowl:
1) Slice the top off the Pomelo until you see the inner white pith.
2) Cut off the white portion of the fruit.
3) Separate the soft pink fruit from the hard white layer and cut into small pieces.
4) Place yogurt in a bowl and top with pomelo, pomegranate arils, granola, coconut chips, chia seeds and dulce de leche sauce (or maple syrup).
