This was the perfect breakfast this morning! I used Oregon-made Nancy's brand plain yogurt (in which was added a drop or two of vanilla extract), local wildflower honey, too! Easy and quick to make. Prepared for Make My Recipe Downunder and Recipe Swap #83 in the Australian/NZ forum.
this was good i used almonds. i liked the creaminess of the yogurt with this. sorry im late sweety
I tried unsalted pistachios, as well as pecans and macadamias, and liked all three combinations with the banana. I love plain yogurt, but didn't care for its tang on this. For the semolina/milk ratio, I decided to follow the package instructions, which directed you to use 50% more semolina for the same amount of milk, but stated that it served 2, instead of 4 (and I found out it did indeed serve 2). Thanks for an enjoyable breakfast!
I first have to say that I skipped the honey to lower the sugars (for me 22g's sugar is a LOT) and mixed some Splenda into the cereal. Also, as I'm looking at the recipe right now I totally forgot the yogurt. Still, I enjoyed the banana-nut combo. Personally I think I would like pecans or walnuts better only because of the salt/sweet mix that the pistachios added. I don't dislike a salty/sweet mix but I would prefer not to have it for brekkie. A solid 4 stars from me.
Very nice and easy way to kick up morning semolina! I always cook my semolina on skim milk - so that was nothing new - but I loved the addition of bananas, honey, and pistachios - they blended so well together. I skipped on the yogurt since anything more on top of the semolina would be too too filling. Thanks for a great treat!
