Ingredients

Like any toast recipe, the ingredients needed are minimal here, so choose good ones! The most important thing is to use a yogurt you like the taste of.

Ingredient Notes and Substitutions

  • Bread: use a soft, enriched white bread. It should be the kind of toast that's just a bit crunchy on the outside, then pillowy and soft when you bite into it.
  • Yogurt: the thicker, the better. Think Greek-style or thick coconut yogurt. If you eat dairy or can find a good vegan substitute, ricotta is excellent.
  • Blueberries: use fresh or frozen, wild or cultivated.

How to Make Yogurt Toast

The most time-consuming element is making the blueberry topping, and that doesn't take much longer than it does to toast the bread.

Blueberry toast steps 1 to 4, making topping and assembly.

Step 1: add the berries, sugar, and lemon juice to a saucepan and cook until warmed through.

Step 2: toast the bread and add a thick layer of yogurt.

Step 3: spoon the berry mixture over the yogurt.

Step 4: swirl the berries and top with lemon zest, then serve.

Top Tips

  • Strain your yogurt: most vegan yogurts won't be thick enough for this recipe, but you can strain the yogurt through a couple layers of cheesecloth or in a nut milk bag overnight in the fridge to thicken it.
  • Sweeten to taste: adjust the amount of sugar to your personal preference. If you find it's not sweet enough after assembling, add a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
  • Use an unwaxed lemon: since you're adding zest, an unwaxed, organic lemon is best to use here. Wash it well in warm water before zesting.

FAQ

Is yogurt on toast good?

It's thick and creamy, a great alternative to butter or peanut butter. A good thick yogurt is a lot like sweet quark, a popular bread topping in Germany and other European countries.

Which bread makes the best toast?

This is up to you, but I recommend using a soft white bread for this recipe, the same type you would use to make French toast. Think brioche.
