This refreshing fruit plate is a dream to wake up to: slices of blood oranges topped with pistachio, drizzled with honey, and served with a side of yogurt. Have this for a quick and healthy breakfast!
Yes please, I’d love a juicy slice of blood orange for breakfast! Especially ones that are topped with crushed pistachios and honey. Oh, and to even make it more drool-icious, a side spoonful of yogurt. Pass me the dish, already!
The biggest breakfast appetite killer for me is drinking orange juice right after brushing my teeth. Not only does it ruin the fresh minty taste in my mouth, it makes a sweet orange juice taste bitter! Once I get that taste in my mouth, I can never seem to get it out! Anyone else in the same boat?
So if you’re like me, make sure you brush your teeth well before having this Blood Orange Pistachio Dream, or save the toothbrush for afterwards! Don’t you dare ruin this breakfast with a long-lasting minty fresh taste.
Also, I feel like I don’t need to state the obvious that this is a light refreshing breakfast, but if you love hearty savory breakfast dishes, don’t fret. This Blood Orange Pistachio Dream can also serve as a delicious breakfast dessert! A dessert course in the morning can be a heavenly treat, and this Blood Orange Pistachio Dream is so healthy there’s no excuse to skip dessert. Enjoy it after a hearty savory main course to wrap up your morning meal.
Get on it already, it’s a super quick and easy recipe, and you can whip this up in no time. Enjoy!
- 2 blood oranges
- ¼ cup pistachios, chopped
- 2 spoonfuls of plain yogurt
- honey, for serving
- Cut a small slice off the ends of the orange. Stand the orange up on one end, and carefully, following the contour of the orange, cut down to remove the peel and the pith. Slice the oranges crosswise into about 6-8 pieces each. Using the tip of the knife, carefully pick out any seeds. Evenly divide and place the oranges onto two plates.
- Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of chopped pistachio on each plate. Add a spoonful of yogurt on the side of the oranges. Drizzle about 1 tablespoon of honey over each serving.
- Serve immediately.
