Ok, I know. Prunes are good for constipation AND this Stewed Prunes with Greek Yogurt and Cinnamon recipe is an amazing Mediterranean Diet Breakfast. This recipe is super helpful in “getting things moving” as it not only has prunes, but it has Greek yogurt which is also great for constipation. But, don’t eat this recipe because you have to, eat it because it’s delicious!
This is a great breakfast that can be made ahead. The stewed prunes can be eaten warm or cold. If you have time to warm them up in the morning, I would recommend that. There is something very soothing about warm prunes with yogurt. Comforting to the digestion and to the soul.

Stewed Prunes with Greek Yogurt and Cinnamon
- 1 cup pitted prunes
- 2 cups water
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 thin slice lemon with rind, halved
- 1 cup Greek yogurt, plain
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Add all stewed prune ingredients to a small pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer on a low boil, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Continue to simmer, covered, for 10 more minutes.
- Fill two bowls with ½ cup of yogurt each. Make a well in the yogurt and then add prunes and syrup. Sprinkle cinnamon on top. Add half lemon slice from prunes for garnish.
So good! Way better than it sounds. :) I have been making a double batch and portioning out into jars. After it cools I top with the yogurt and cinnamon. It is a wonderful, easy breakfast during the week. Just grab a jar and go!
This is really yummy
