Today was a special day. After a couple of long years I rediscovered a fantastic song written by a friend of mine, Kasandra, who is a great artist and a newly born blogger. She posted her “Don’t wake up choking” song to her Wordfalls blog and I would listen to it throughout the whole day. It’s funny how much you appreciate something once you come across it again …. At the end of the day I shared the song with another friend of mine. Soon after we let ourselves totally enjoy the song’s bluesy feel …. perfect for today’s grey and wet weather.

Even though, I have madly felt in love with Kasandra’s music and its melancholy, at some point I felt an unusual joy. I decided to celebrate Kasandra’s talent, the song of the day and my feel-good mood. For this reason I made a small, luscious granola yogurt dessert.

This super easy meal can be eaten as breakfast, snack or dessert and is easily adjustable – add more or less yogurt, honey and cereals depending on your taste. You can’t go wrong with it!

Enjoy it because it’s healthy and delicious!

4 tablespoons of Greek yogurt

Pour the yogurt into a glass or a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of honey, followed by the granola/cereals/musli. Add the remaining spoon of honey. Chop strawberries. Arrange the fruit on top of the yogurt/honey/cereals layers. Sprinkle everything with some nuts or seeds. Voila! How simple is that?
