Ingredients (5)

  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 3/4 cup small-dice pear
  • 3 tablespoons pitted small-dice Medjool dates
  • 1/2 cup fresh pomegranate seeds
  • 3 tablespoons honey


Trade in your tired bowl of cereal for a combination of tart yogurt, juicy pears, sweet dates and honey, and crunchy pomegranate seeds. It’s a simple, inspired breakfast that can be made in 15 minutes or less, and can easily be doubled to serve a brunch crowd. For a fancier presentation, use small glasses for individual servings.
