I've been making an effort to get enough protein for breakfast each day and this recipe is a big help because it is so easy and filling. I like being able to put this together the night before and know the clean-up is easy. I have used fresh and frozen berries, applesauce, fresh and canned peaches and pears. I usually use plain Greek yogurt and change the spices to try different flavors. Sometimes I add chopped nuts or pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
