Homemade Greek Yogurt with Dried Seasonal Fruit and Jam

Figs are not only a delicious fall fruit but loaded with health promoting nutrients, they are also a great source of fiber (a cancer preventative) have lots of potassium (lowers blood pressure), are jam packed with manganese, vitamin B6 and calcium and are only 37 calories…but who’s counting?

  • 6 oz plain Greek yogurt see directions above for making your own
  • 1/4-1/3 cup granola chopped walnuts or a combination
  • 1 T of your favorite jam I used organic low sugar raspberry
  • 2-3 dried figs roughly chopped


  1. I used Udi's gluten free cranberry granola in this recipe...I figured the more seasonal dried fruit the better. But you can use what ever kind you prefer or skip the grains completely and use chopped nuts only (more protein and healthy fats!)
  2. Place half the granola and/or nuts and half the dried figs into a small bowl. Spoon greek yogurt on top. Sprinkle with remaining nuts/granola/figs. Then place a dab of jam on top! That's it my friends. And you won't believe how good it is!
