Created March 6, 2017

Up your brunch game with these quick, genius recipes that take yogurt in unexpected directions!

If you’ve been aching to have friends over for a brunch-time chat but keep putting it off because it sounds like too much work, take cheer! Prepping a brunch buffet table of goodies doesn’t have to take all day. And it doesn’t have to take a millionbillion ingredients, either.

It takes just a few quick steps, a few basic ingredients and one delicious yogurt to make 5 eye-poppingly gorgeous recipes.

You ready? Grab yourself a big bowl of Yoplait™ and whip up these tasty A.M. eats. Beautiful, simple and ready to be shared. This is what brunch is all about.


1. Apple Pie Fries with Yogurt Dippers

Back in the 90’s, caramel apple dip was all the rage. Remember how GOOD it was, dipping crisp, tangy apples into gooey, buttery caramel? I do.


We’re doing that goodness one better by adding Apple Pie Fries. Pillsbury™ pie crust makes for super-quick cinnamon-sugar dipper sticks. When stacked with apples and popped into itty bitty shot glasses full of creamy vanilla Yoplait™ and delicious caramel, you’re left with the quickest (and cutest) brunch treat this side of 1999.



2. Granola Cups with Yogurt and Berries

Everyone loves the yogurt parfait. Crunchy granola, creamy yogurt, fresh berries. Such an inspired flavor combo! But let’s be honest. It’s also a huge food investment. Chewing your way through a giant yogurt parfait means 43 spoonfuls of the stuff. By the time you get to the bottom, you’re tired of eating the same flavor combo.


But what if you could take all the goodness of the yogurt parfait and put it into one-bite wonderfulness? Well, yep. Gone done and did that. In these yummy yogurt bites, granola is baked into teensy crunchable cups, topped with vanilla yogurt and finished off with a shiny berry.


Eeets sooo preeetty! Your mouth will thank you.



3. Peach Mimosa Smoothie

What would brunchtime be without a boozy mimosa? After all, it’s like 10am. Time to pull out the sparkly and get your bubbly on.


This quick treat calls for three ingredients: peaches, yogurt and champagne—then turns them into an irresistible smoothie. You can sip on this scrumptious sipper, knowing you’re getting your daily dose of Cascadian Farms™ organic peachware. Plus, also: booze.

Brunchfast is so nice.


4. Overnight Chia Pudding

So you’ve had chia pudding, that 3-ingredient wonder of overnight goodness. It’s usually made with coconut milk, looks like a hunk of polka-dotted health food, and tastes like a dream.


The original version is nice and all, but swap out that coconut milk for creamy yogurt and top with a simple strawberry sauce. As it chills overnight, the chia turns the yogurt into pudding all by itself!



5. Lemon Sugar Shortcake Bites

Quick bites for brunch are half the fun, and this quick and easy recipe makes for superquick snackables. Pillsbury™ biscuits are dredged in lemon sugar, baked until golden, and then stuffed mini sandwich-style with a dollop of yogurt and fresh slices of strawberry.


Skewer and serve! This idea is so easy, so pretty and so cute on a brunch table.
