Ingredients

1/4 cup 100 percent guava or orange juice (no sugar added)

4 dried apricots, diced

1 cup 2 percent Greek yogurt

1/2 medium pink grapefruit, cut into segments

One 4-ounce cup mandarin oranges in 100 percent fruit juice, strained

1/4 cup bran flakes cereal

2 tablespoons toasted or raw pistachios, roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Put the guava juice and apricots in a small bowl, and cover. Microwave until the apricots are tender and the juice reduces to a lighter syrup, 1 to 2 minutes. Let cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally to help cool faster.
  2. Put the yogurt in a cereal bowl. Spoon the apricot-guava compote into the center. Arrange the grapefruit, mandarin oranges, cereal and pistachios in neat piles or rows around the compote. Then take a photo!

Cook’s Note

Orange juice is a great substitute for guava in this recipe, but the total nutrition of the breakfast bowl will alter slightly: Carbohydrates: 56 g, Fiber: 6 g, Sugar: 42 g.
