Day 114 : Tropical Yogurt Swirl

I’ve had this for breakfast/lunch about 4 times now and figured it was time to share!  I came across a recipe that called for mango, and fat free plain yogurt and though the idea was intriguing, the ingredients weren’t so much.  I decided to give it a try though using fat free vanilla greek yogurt and pineapple along with the other ingredients and it is SO good!  The original recipe also calls for protein powder, and I plan to try it that way at some point, but I forgot to pick some up the last time I was at the store.  I’ve been trying to get a bit more lean protein and fruits/veggies in my diet lately so this is a great way to accomplish that.

The recipe calls for shredded coconut, but I first tried it with toasted shredded coconut and really liked it that way.  I ran out of toasted coconut the last time though and it was still really nice with the regular shredded coconut.  I also added about a half of a banana, diced to it the last time and I think that was my favorite yet.  I think this is another one of those great recipes that is versatile and you can add whatever tropical ingredients you like!
