A Greek breakfast bowl is all you need.

Preparation time





240g de yaourt grec

2-3 tablespoons of walnuts

1 apple thinly sliced

1 tablespoon of honey

Greek yogurt with honey and nuts

First of all, we start from a hypothesis that may seem contradictory and even funny, but it is the pure and simple truth. Greeks traditionally don't have breakfast and we're talking about the majority of Greeks!

However, we tend to equate the term Greek breakfast with a hearty breakfast made with natural and healthy ingredients . In fact, these are ingredients that are widely used in the Greek Mediterranean diet and perhaps this is why the Greek breakfast is named. 

We are talking about ingredients and products from the land that the country is rich in. Fresh fruit , dried fruit, honey . All raw materials are widely available in the country at all latitudes. But above all, Greek yogurt , a true image of the quality of production and richness.   

What does the Greek breakfast include? A bowl of yogurt, a handful of nuts, peanuts, walnuts or almonds and pieces of fruit. Seasonal fruits are the best choice: apples and pears in winter, bananas are easy to find all year round, cherries and strawberries in late spring, peaches and apricots in summer.  

The nuts will add an extra note of flavor and if you want a sweetener, natural honey is the safe choice. Greek honey has some amazing varieties, with thyme honey being the most famous. But if you want to make your breakfast more special, why not try a special honey like fir honey or chestnut honey?
