3 Greek Yogurt Bowl Ideas

3 delicious yogurt bowl ideas: tropical, granola, and chocolate!

Three ideas for yogurt bowls: granola, chocolate, and tropical!

Here’s a little secret: yogurt bowls are nearly as easy as cold cereal and much healthier. You can literally scoop some yogurt up, sprinkle on some fruit and nuts, and call it breakfast.

My kids eat it for breakfast ALL the time. They never seem to tire of it, which makes my life easier!

Today I’m sharing three yummy yogurt bowl ideas so you can rotate through them all week! Each one only requires 6 or less ingredients, putting them low on the hassle scale.

To make yogurt bowls a truly healthy breakfast, it’s important to choose good quality yogurt. If you can, buy yogurt that isn’t made from milk from cows raised in confinement. Kalona SuperNatural organic Greek yogurt is top notch stuff. It’s made with pasture-grazed, certified organic milk that’s minimally processed.

What does minimally processed mean?

  • The milk is non-homogenized.
  • It’s Pasteurized to just 161°F.
  • The milk is then cultured for 24 hours and strained using a special piece of equipment.

Did you know that Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt? Straining the whey out of the yogurt makes it more concentrated, resulting in more protein per serving! If increasing your or your kids’ protein intake is a goal, Greek yogurt is an awesome choice.

Bonus: Greek yogurt is also creamier than regular yogurt!

Okay, let’s make some breakfast bowls with it!

Tropical Yogurt Bowl:

Ingredients for a tropical yogurt bowl laid out on a marble surface.

First of all, we have a tropical flavored yogurt bowl.

You’ll need:

  • Greek yogurt
  • Mangoes
  • Kiwis
  • Chia Seeds
  • Maple syrup
  • Dried coconut

 

Mixing maple syrup into Greek yogurt.

Quick tip: I like to buy plain Greek yogurt so I can control the sweetness. One tablespoon of maple syrup per cup of yogurt is just right for me. But you can adjust to your personal tastes. You can leave out the sweetener completely, or use stevia or Munkfruit instead. I’m not a fan of low-calorie sweeteners, so I go for maple syrup or honey.

Mix your sweetener in before adding the other ingredients.

Adding mangoes, kiwi, coconut, and chia seeds.

Then top the sweetened yogurt with mangoes, kiwi, chia seeds, and dried coconut.

I love the mix of the sweet mangoes, tart kiwis, chewy coconut, and the crunchy pop of the chia seeds.

Granola Yogurt Bowl:

Up next we have a classic granola yogurt bowl!

You’ll need:

  • Greek yogurt
  • Granola
  • Almond butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Blueberries
  • Bananas

Drizzling almond butter over the yogurt, bananas, blueberries, and granola.

First, mix the syrup into the yogurt as before. Then top with the granola, fruit, and a drizzle of almond butter.

Quick tip: it’s easier to drizzle almond butter if you warm it up a bit first.

This one’s a classic for a reason: it’s scrumptious! I love the sweet, crunchy granola mixed with the fresh fruit and creamy almond butter.

 

Chocolate Yogurt Bowl:

Lastly, a chocolate flavored yogurt bowl!

You’ll Need:

  • Greek yogurt
  • Cocoa powder
  • Maple syrup
  • Strawberries
  • Sliced almonds

Adding the cocoa powder.

Start by adding the cocoa powder to the yogurt.

Whisking the cocoa powder into the yogurt.

Then whisk it in until completely smooth.

Whisking the maple syrup into the chocolate.

Next, add the maple syrup and whisk again until smooth. You may find that you want more maple syrup since the chocolate adds a bitter flavor note.

Adding the strawberries and almonds.

Lastly, top with the strawberries and almonds.

Chocolate and yogurt might seem like a different flavor combination, but it works! You could totally do raspberries or pomegranate seeds instead of the strawberries as well.
