  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup plain, whole milk yogurt No added sugar or flavor. No reduced fat. Just the traditional, plain whole milk yogurt. For this recipe I used Bulgarian yogurt, which is very popular in France. It can be found at Trader Joe's in the US.
  • 1 TSP pomegranate I added this for decoration. Robert's recipe is just the banana and the yogurt.


  • Place the yogurt in a bowl

  • Cut the banana and add to the yogurt. If you'd like, sprinkle a bit of pomegranate or add a couple of berries.

What about drinks for breakfast? Robert sometimes drinks one small coffee. This is the French and Italian cup size, the volume of an espresso. Then he drinks no more coffee or caffeine for the day.
