If you follow me on Instagram, you've already been subjected to hefty amount of greek yogurt pictures over the past couple of years. I am a big, big fan of greek yogurt. It's one of my go-to quick breakfast favorites, and I use it often in baking or in soup (instead of sour cream). As with anything you eat often, sometimes it can get boring. Having options to change up the flavor is a must. Here are a few of my personal favorites.1. Banana Bread Greek Yogurt:
You'll need one ripe banana, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, 7 oz. greek yogurt (one small container), and a few walnuts or banana chips. Mash up the banana and stir into the yogurt. Stir in the extract, and top with nuts or banana chips. This one is awesome for breakfast.2. Chocolate Pudding Greek Yogurt:
You'll need 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons instant chocolate pudding and 7 oz. greek yogurt. Stir together. Stir well; you don't want any clumps of powder. This one is probably my favorite because as you stir, the yogurt will begin to thicken—like chocolate mousse. Top with fresh fruit. I personally think this makes a better afternoon snack or light dessert than a breakfast because it feels so decadent, even though it's pretty healthy. You could also freeze this and have a really great frozen yogurt treat!
3. Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt:
This one is another almost dessert. I first saw cookie dough greek yogurt here. To make this, you'll need 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter, 1 tablespoon honey, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract, and a few mini chocolate chips. Mix together and enjoy this treat!
4. Lemon Meringue Greek Yogurt:
I discovered this combination last week while making Citrus Tarts. To make lemon meringue greek yogurt, you'll need 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon curd (homemade or store bought is fine) and 7 oz. greek yogurt. Stir together and top with granola. I love this for breakfast because the citrus really wakes you up. Yum!
What about you? Do you have any favorite ways to enjoy greek yogurt? xo. Emma
