There are so many ways to use lemon curd, and one of them is to combine it with yogurt. Something about the creamy yogurt with the sweet citrus of the lemon curd is absolutely amazing. Join Apronese to see how to make lemon berry yogurt for breakfast.

Serve Immediately or Store For Later

These lemon berry yogurt breakfast bowls are also tasty when they are refrigerated. If you prefer your oats to be a bit softer, make them ahead of time and give the oats time to absorb moisture from the yogurt and soften up.

What Yogurt Is The Best to Use?

There are plenty of options here. I used a whole milk plain yogurt, which is super rich and gives these bowls a very dessert-like quality.

But you can use a vanilla or strawberry-flavored yogurt if you want things a bit sweeter. Or you can also use Greek yogurt if you want an extra thick bowl. Just about any kind will work.

About The “Berry”

I used strawberries which gave the bowl a sort of strawberry lemonade flavor. Blueberries and raspberries also go great with lemon, and you can use either fresh or frozen berries.

You can add a banana in there, too. Or maybe even some coconut shreds.
