Passion Fruit Yogurt Bowl with Maple Banana

Passion Fruit Yogurt Bowl with Maple Banana

I’m a huge greek yogurt fan. Yes I know that it’s not vegan and it might upset my sensitive stomach sometimes, so I tend to enjoy this once a week or so. I have yet to find a lactose-free yogurt that I enjoy as much, but you can totally make this with a lactose-free yogurt of your choice.

So I was inspired by Gabriel Cabrera from The Artful Desperado to add tea into my yogurt. At first, I was unsure I was going to like it, but now I can say that yogurt will never be the same without it.  My breakfast just became a gourmet dish. You can get creative with the type of tea you use, but loose leaf is the way to go.  I chose a passion fruit tea from David’s Tea and didn’t have quite enough so added a little black tea into the mix. It was absolutely delicious.

So here’s how it’s made.


Makes 2 bowls

  • 2 tbsp looseleaf tea of choice
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt of your choice
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp chopped pistachios
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp sliced almonds


  1. Put maple syrup into small pan and put heat on medium. While the pan is heating, slice your banana into 4 pieces slicing the width and length. Once the maple syrup starts to bubble, add the banana slices. Let cook about 5 minutes before turning them over to cook on the other side for 5 minutes.
  2. While the banana is cooking, add the tea into a blender and blend for about 2 minutes to turn the tea into powder.  If there are small pieces it doesn’t matter, as long as there aren’t large chunks.
  3. Split yogurt into 2 bowls and blend in the tea by mixing it with a spoon. Add the rest of the ingredients on top of the bowl splitting everything evenly into both bowls.
  4. Top with bananas and remaining syrup.
