Dragon Fruit & Blueberry Yogurt Bowl

A quick and colorful yogurt bowl. Packed with calcium and vitamins, this tropical breakfast bowl will keep you full till lunch. Guaranteed!

I’ve been raised in a country (Italy, if you didn’t know) where the typical breakfast is a croissant or pastry, coffee, and go. Many people don’t even sit down for breakfast; they literally grab their croissant, have a coffe in 1.5 millisecond (now you know why espresso is such a thing!) and they’re off to the office or school.

Totally fine, except an hour and a half later I’m usually super hungry! I will end up snacking, and not always with healthy choices. Lately I’ve been trying to experiment with different, more filling, types of breakfast, and I found that a yogurt bowl is a winner!

Yogurt bowls are in fact packed with calcium, proteins, and vitamins, plus they keep me satiated thanks to all the healthy grains such as granola and chia seeds. I’ve been trying with different combinations, but this dragon fruit and blueberry yogurt bowl is one of my favorites from when I was based in Chiang Mai, Thailand. I sort of have an addiction to dragon fruit, so I needed to incorporate it in my bowl. The final result looks pretty colorful, doesn’t it?

Yogurt breakfast bowls are also an easy and super fun idea if you have guests. You can place yogurt in a big bowl, and create a breakfast bar that guests can choose from to top their breakfast bowl. Place on your counter granola, nuts, fruit, and any other ingredient you have available at home for the perfect breakfast yogurt bowl.


For this dragon fruit and blueberry yogurt bowl, I used:

  • 1 cup low-sugar blueberry yogurt
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 dragon fruit
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 2 tbsp trail mix (mixed nuts with dried fruit)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut flakes


I’ve made a video of this easy yogurt bowl recipe so you can check out for yourself how quick is to make this. Perfect for those mornings where you literally have 5 minutes to get breakfast ready!


Obviously, this is one of the million combinations you can try for a yogurt bowl. You can mix and match as much as you want. This is a useful list of ingredients you can add.

My go-to mix is usually yogurt + fruit (preferably seasonal, but frozen will do as well) + one or two crunchy ingredients (granola and nuts). You can also add a superfood or dried fruit, and a sweetener if the yogurt is unsweetened.


  • 2% Greek Yogurt (creamier than the Non-Fat version)
  • Low Fat or Non-Fat Vanilla Yogurt
  • Low Sugar Flavored Yogurt
  • Coconut Milk Yogurt for a dairy-free alternative
  • Organic Soy Yogurt for another dairy-free option


  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Orange
  • Pomegranate
  • Pineapple
  • Banana
  • Kiwi
  • Apples
  • Peaches
  • Dragon Fruit
  • Mango
  • Papaya

Crunchy Stuff

  • Granola
  • Almonds
  • Pecans
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Cashews
  • Pistachio

Dried Fruit / Superfoods

  • Chia Seeds
  • Flax Seeds
  • Coconut Flakes or Coconut Chips
  • Dried Berries
  • Other types of dried fruit
  • Dates
  • Chocolate Chips (preferably dark chocolate chips, low sugar)

Sweeteners and Extras

  • Nut Butter
  • Honey
  • Agave Syrup
  • Maple Syrup
  • Brown Sugar
  • Stevia
  • Bee Pollen
  • Cinnamon or Nutmeg


What’s the best fruit for a yogurt bowl?

There’s not a best fruit really. I try and choose fruit in season, so I will go for more berries in the summer and more orange and citrus in the winter. However, totally fine to eat the freezer section for some frozen berries in the winter too. When I’m based in a tropical country, my yogurt bowls look a lot more colorful with plenty of mango, papaya and dragon fruit added to the mix.

What type of yogurt is best to use for a yogurt bowl?

Again, whatever you like best. For a firmer consistency, I suggest Greek yogurt. When using flavored yogurt, make sure to pick a brand with low sugar or an alternative sweetener. Flavored yogurt can pack a lot of unnecessary sugar!
