Greek Yogurt Bowls Recipe (Yogurt Breakfast Bowl)

Greek Yogurt Bowls are packed with calcium, protein & vitamins. They’re the perfect healthy breakfast or snack.

Now that the New Year is here, it’s time to start thinking nutrition again.

One of my worst habits is not eating breakfast in the morning.

Most days, I’ll drink a cup of coffee and call it good until lunchtime.

But my resolution for the New Year is to make more of an effort to start the day off with a healthy meal.

These simple, healthy Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowls are my new favorite way to start the day, and I’m sharing my five favorite topping ideas. They’re quick and easy to throw together with simple toppings and Greek yogurt and they’re high in calcium, protein and fiber.

My favorite Greek yogurt to use in these breakfast bowls is nonfat Greek yogurt. I love that you can buy it in a large size so that you can create different Greek yogurt bowls each day. You can also use flavored yogurts like vanilla, strawberry, cherry, etc.

For a dairy-free, vegan option you can use a plant based yogurt like almond milk yogurt, cashew milk yogurt, or coconut blend yogurt.

Recipe tips

  • Look for your crunchy bits in the bulk section of your grocery store. It’s a great place to find add-ins like coconut flakes, granola, chia seeds and nuts and you don’t have to buy a large amount at once. That way you can have fun switching up your combinations from day to day.
  • This time of year, it can be difficult to find fresh fruit. No worries! You can also use frozen fruit to top your breakfast bowls!
  • These breakfast bowls are great when you’re entertaining. You can set out lots of different toppings and your guests can customize their bowls.

      I haven’t had yogurt for breakfast in a long time as I prefer warm breakfasts during this time of the year, but your photos make me wanna go pick up some vegan yogurt from the store ASAP. So many yummy ways to dress up yogurt!
