The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

I have to say this has been one of the cloudiest springs in recent memory. That’s not to say it actually is the cloudiest – it could be in fact that my memory has selective recall. That’s been known to happen on occasion. Nevertheless it’s cloudy again. We made these quick, healthy breakfast treats earlier this week, but they would be the perfect way to brighten up a cloudy morning. The recipe is adapted from one we came across in the Taste of Home Comfort Food, Diet Cookbook. It’s also a great way to use up some of the leftover phyllo from the baklawa. (I bought several packages just-in-case my attempt at the recipe went horribly array.)

We began by cutting three phyllo sheets into sixths. We then separated the squares out and placed them in muffin tins – 3 per tin.

Both Mr. N and Miss A were surprisingly very good with the delicate phyllo. They gently layered the sheets, rotating the corners by 90 degrees each time.

We then sprayed the phyllo with a little cooking spray and placed them in the oven at 350F for 7 minutes.

While the phyllo cups cooled we mixed a bit of orange juice with a few cups of Chobani Champions Greek Yogurt, honey-nana flavor. Next we scooped a bit of the yogurt into the phyllo cups and topped them with fresh berries and a drizzle of honey. The result:

Fruity Phyllo Florettes. The kids loved them (and so did mom and dad)! They were sweet, fresh and healthy. Not to mention they were a fast way to make a fun new breakfast. Here’s to the sun coming out tomorrow! Happy Memorial weekend!

    These look awesome – incidentally, you probably hear this a lot but it’s so wonderful that you actively have your children helping out and having fun so much. The number of people my age whose idea of “cooking” consists of “lol, boiled pasta with grated cheese” or “frozen meal in the microwave for 3 minutes”. I think food and food preparation is one of the most incredible pleasures in life and hopefully they’ll grow up appreciating this!

      Thank you Charles. That is so sweet. You got me all teary eyed. 🙂 I hope they grow up to have good memories of these times. I know I will. (And it will be a bonus if they learn how to cook for themselves too. LOL)

    Those phyllo fruit cups are a lovely way to start the day. You can also serve cooked pudding with fresh fruit on top in them or bake individual semolina desserts (galactoboureko recipe I mentioned in your baklava post) in muffin tins using the phyllo strips as a base and fold off the overhang to seal in the custard.

    What a simple, yet inventive, idea for a breakfast meal! I can imagine the flavors working really well together, from the tartness of the orange juice to the sweetness of the strawberries to the saltiness of the phyllo cups. YUM!!

      Thanks Caroline! We definitely enjoyed them. And it’s a bonus because it totally tastes like a sinful treat, but is really not bad at all. Love that kind of food!
