Heather Fulbright/CNN

Elevate your breakfast by whipping Greek yogurt with warm cardamom spice. A topping of medjool dates adds sweetness and pistachios lend crunch. Whole-milk Greek yogurt is rich in protein compared to regular yogurt, providing a great boost to your morning meal.

Makes 2 servings


  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 small medjool dates, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon raw pistachios, finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon finely grated orange zest


1. In a medium bowl, add the cardamom, vanilla and maple syrup. Next, add yogurt.

Using a whisk, mix yogurt until whipped to a thick, smooth consistency, about 30 seconds.

2. Divide the yogurt between 2 bowls and top each with half of dates. Sprinkle each serving with half of pistachios and orange zest.

Serve immediately. If desired, drizzle with maple syrup to adjust sweetness to taste and serve with fresh fruit on the side.
