On my Instagram account, I usually end up sharing the random breakfasts and lunch I throw together while simultaneously trying to do a million other things. Oftentimes it seems that yogurt — and more often than not higher-protein Greek yogurt — tends to be at the center of or at least plays some part in those meals. Here are a few of my favorites from the last few months, rounded up with (semi) recipes to help you make them yourself at home.
Strawberry Frozen Yogurt (for Breakfast OR Dessert)
2 parts Greek yogurt (I used 2% plain Chobani) + 1 part fresh berries + 1 proportionate drizzle of sweetener, like agave
Combine, blend (in a food processor or with a stick blender), freeze, stir every hour until mostly frozen. Scoop.
Greek Yogurt with Berries and Graham Cracker
1 serving Greek yogurt (I used 2% plain Chobani) + 1 cup berries of choice + 2 graham crackers, crumbled (I used Shar gluten-free honeygrams)
Scoop. Top. Crumble.
Coconut Greek Yogurt with Berries and Granola
1 6oz container coconut Greek yogurt (I used 2% coconut Chobani) + 1/2 cup blueberries + 1/4 cup raspberries + 1/4 cup granola (I used vanilla Udi’s granola)
Key Lime Pie for Cheaters
1/2 6oz container key lime Greek yogurt + 2 graham crackers, crumbled (I used Sharr gluten-free graham crackers)
Just crumble the crackers over the yogurt.
Creamy Pesto Dipping Sauce
2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt + 1 tablespoon pesto (homemade or store bought)
Mix until smooth. Dip whatever you want — I went with a veggie “quesadilla.”
Creamy Smoothie Bowl
1 thick fruit-only smoothie of your choice + 1 scoop plain Greek yogurt + chia seeds, honey/agave, cinnamon, any other toppings you want
Blend, swirl, sprinkle. Eat from a bowl.
Key Lime-Banana-Blueberry Waffle
1 frozen waffle, toasted + 1/2 cup blueberries + 1/2 banana, sliced + 1/2 6oz container key lime Greek yogurt (I used 2% Chobani)
Berry-Coconut Breakfast Waffle
1 frozen waffle, toasted + 1 scoop yogurt (Greek or regular work, any flavor or brand) + 1 cup blueberries + 1/2 banana, sliced + 2 tablespoons toasted coconut
Toast, top, sprinkle.
Oat-Yogurt Mess Bowl
1 cup yogurt + 1/4 cup raw plain quick oats + 1 banana, sliced + cinnamon + peanut butter + agave/honey (optional)
Mix it all together, or make it pretty like this! (Yogurt on the bottom, oats in the middle, banana around the sides, cinnamon and PB all over.)
Dilly Veggie Dip
1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt + 1 teaspoon lemon juice + 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
Mix, eat with veggies.
