Coconut Milk Yogurt topped with Dragonfruit, Strawberries, Coconut Flakes, Cocoa Nibs and Carob Chips

This was put together as a breakfast recipe but it could just as easily fall under the dessert category. If you haven't tried coconut yogurt yet please do yourself a favor and try some. I like the plain, unsweetened kind. You can easily add stevia or another sweetener of your choice if you want it a bit sweeter. You can also blend it up with fresh vanilla pods or a few drops of pure vanilla extract to give it a warmer flavor. Moving on to the other star of this recipe... dragonfruit. The flavor is a lot like a kiwi but a little less tart. It is such a pretty fruit to look at though that I think I'd still add it to my recipes even if it didn't have any flavor at all. You can find dragonfruit at a lot of supermarkets these days and they are really don't require any special preparation. Just cut and serve. Feel free to change out your toppings as you please for the recipe. Enjoy! 

the recipe: 

1 cup (or 1 container) coconut milk yogurt

1/4 cup coconut flakes

1/4 dragonfruit, cut as you like 

1 strawberry sliced

Sprinkle on cocoa nibs and carob chips as you like 

the plan: 

Pretty self-explanatory but for consistency's sake... mix in any sweeteners or other additions that you like (stevia, maple syrup, chia seeds, etc). Top with fruit and other toppings of your choice.
