In today’s post I’m serving up a healthy breakfast charcuterie board with yogurt, granola, and fresh fruit. I’m also sharing how to make your own board in minutes.
Traditionally, charcuterie is the art of arranging cured meats along with cheeses, bread, fruit, and nuts artfully on a serving board. Lately, however, people are adding a different perspective to grazing boards. From waffle breakfast boards to candy boards, there’s a fresh take on the meaning on the phrase “charcuterie board.” (Just don’t tell the French. 😊)
Breakfast boards are an easy way to jazz up any weekend meal. They’re also a delightful offering for any brunch or holiday get together so that your guests can grab what they want, family style. People love grazing boards, so you may as well give them what they want!
How to Make a Healthy Breakfast Charcuterie Board
First, make sure you have a large board as your base. Obviously, the more people you’re entertaining, the larger the board.
I prefer a wood or marble board, but any surface will work. The round board you see here is from Target; it’s good for serving 2-3 people.
Here are some additional serving board ideas:
Ingredients for Your Board
For this breakfast charcuterie board, I’m keeping things light and healthy with yogurt, granola, and fresh fruit.
I chose plain Greek and strawberry yogurts as the stars of my board. Everything else on the board. Are accompaniments and toppings. I have apples, kiwi, and banana slices, along with raspberries and blackberries. For added crunch, I also put some granola in a small bowl (I am OBSESSED with this chocolate peanut butter granola) and sliced almonds off to the side.
The beauty of this board (and any board, really) is that you can pile on whatever is in your fridge or your favorite flavors.
Other ingredients to add to the yogurt and granola:
- Grapefruit slices
- Honey for drizzling
Assembling Your Healthy Breakfast Charcuterie Board
- Start with you base, then place bowls of yogurt and granola to anchor your board. Everything else will go around these anchors.
- Then, place the bigger supporting items first, like the apple and kiwi slices.
- After that, fill in any gaps with smaller foods like berries and almond slices.
- Finally, garnish your health breakfast charcuterie board with mint for a touch of greenery (that you can also eat!)
