Yogurt bowls are quickly catching fire as a popular meal option, but few realize how easy they are to make at home. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve become chummy with the owner of Yogurt Express because of how many bowls I’ve bought. Although since, I’ve realized how much cheaper and healthier they can be when made at home.

This recipe cuts out unnecessary butter by swapping granola with muesli and has not only acai, but flax, chia, kale, matcha green tea and goji too. So if you want less calories in your mouth and more money in your wallet, you’ve come to the right place.

The best part of this recipe? You can switch up this vegan dish by changing the fruits and smoothie flavor to your liking – it’s impossible to get bored. Plus, you can add honey, almond butter or Nutella to keep things interesting. Did I mention 10 grams of protein too? You’ll leave for class feeling nourished, not stuffed.
