Yogurt Toast Recipe

 

Yogurt Toast

You can’t log onto Instagram for more than 5 minutes without scrolling through a photo of avocado toast. Don’t get me wrong- the discovery of smashed or sliced avocado on my toast has literally changed my life, but when the mornings are super sticky and I want something a little more refreshing, I turn to my other friend: yogurt toast.

I know- I know- yogurt on toast seems weird and downright wrong. But, as my son says to his Mimi anytime she balks at his newest food obsession:  come on, just try it!

The best part of this is that you likely have everything you need in your home: your fave bread (I’m a big fan of nutty multigrain breads), your fave yogurt (this works best with a thick yogurt like greek or skyr), and any toppings you may have around. 

Here are some ideas to get your yogurt toast off on the right foot:

A quick spread of 4% vanilla Siggi’s (my absolute fave) with a seasonal apple, sliced super thinly, a sprinkle of chia seeds and lemon zest to give your morning a little extra love. 

Same with this crusty Italian toast topped with blueberries and chia:

Extra points if they were picked yourself :)

When pomegranates are in season adding some seeds to the top of my yogurt toast is like a delicacy.

For my son and hubby who hate munching on the seeds, I just add a few to my lemon squeezer and top his toast with just the pomegranate juice. Snack heaven!

It even works to make savory toasts a little better. Next time you’re in the mood for Avo toast, spread a thin layer of plain yogurt first. You’ll be thanking me later! Bonus points if you then add a little prosciutto on top:

I served this up as as app at a small dinner party and people could not stop raving! 

Finally, a little spread on your ever so sweet and slightly toasted pound cake is a great way to add fresh fruit to your dessert to lighten it up. This particular pound cake was a meyer lemon poppy seed cake, but any pound cake will do. I topped it with a smear ofstrawberry rhubarb 4% yogurt from Siggis and some fresh seasonal berries.

Doing it for the ‘Gram is always on my mind. Whether a family trip or work event, I am always on the lookout for the perfect location in order to get the perfect shot. That’s why when a family friend told us about this super kitchy Airstream park in Santa Barbara, I couldn’t get to my phone soon enough to book that shit.

I couldn’t wait to get up to this upscale trailer park to get so much great throwback content as well as shoot my post for Lot801. The icing on this cupcake was that they were dog friendly too. Finally, a family trip where I could capture these sweet and brief moments where Annabelle is still small enough to take anywhere and before baby number 2 comes and our lives are turned upside down.

Usually when we go on a trip, the leaving part is the most stressful part of traveling. This time, however, it was earily calm and organized. I should have realized that this was not a good sign, like when they said on Sex & The City “The worse the wedding, the better the marriage”, I should have realized the rest of the trip was going to be a disaster.

But, we packed up the car anyway and headed north to the sleepy beach town of Santa Barbara. After 5 hours of LA traffic, we arrived at our new abode and settled in. All was well, then the evening hit. Annabelle decided sleeping was for rookies and proceeded to have one of the most incredible tantrums I have ever seen.

After she finally settled down and fell asleep, the hubbs and I sat in the dark for a few hours (since there was only one itty bitty bedroom that was now occupied by an even smaller toddler) watching Netflix on my phone.

When we finally decided to go to sleep, the dogs decided to get horrifically ill and have diarrhea every hour on the hour. Along with that, when the dogs weren’t shitting on the astroturf right outside our room, Annabelle was waking up crying because she had developed a cold that inhibited her pacifier from staying in her mouth.

Seriously, just FML.

So after the disastrous night and not being able to leave the trailer for fear of the dogs getting sick all over the faux wood, we decided to cut our losses and head home.

Overall, the trip was an epic fail without even some amazing pics to make everything all better. But you can’t win them all and we will just have to chalk this one up to being just another funny/awful family vacation.
