lunch special: yogurt with fresh fruit, honey + basil

June 20th, 2011

Last week I was looking for something super duper simple for lunch; something that would both feed me and help me cool down. After looking in the fridge, I came out with a handful of strawberries, some yogurt and basil. I also had a mango sitting on the counter, so I cut a few chunks of that to add to the party. Looking for a way to jazz it up a bit, I reached for one of my go-to yogurt accompaniments and added a drizzle of honey. Lunch turned out to be exactly what I needed, a little sweet, a bit tangy and totally cooling.

1 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup mangoes, cut into chunks

place the yogurt in a bowl and top with fresh fruit.
Drizzle the honey over top, then sprinkle the basil slivers.

    I love basil. I’d marry it if I didn’t think my fiance would mind.
