Delectable Greek Yogurt Mix-Ins

Yogurt with Chocolate on Top

We’ve all drizzled honey over Greek yogurt, or added granola for crunch. As delicious as these combinations are, getting more creative with your greek yogurt mix-ins can be a great way to keep you excited about healthy eating.

Below are some delicious, less traditional topping and ideas that you can add for your greek yogurt mix-ins.

Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans

I love vanilla flavored Greek yogurt, and when I need an extra pick-me-up or want a little crunch, I add a few chocolate-covered espresso beans. It’s the perfect energy-packed treat for the late afternoon lull!

Yogurt with Nuts on Top

Peanut Butter and Jelly

You can’t go wrong with the classic PB & J, in any context, including Greek yogurt! I often stir in creamy or crunchy peanut butter with my favorite fruit preserves for a creamy, high-protein snack. A fun twist on this is adding jelly with roasted peanuts – which tastes about the same but offers more of a crunch.

Graham Cracker Crumbles

Craving pie but want to indulge your craving with something healthier? Try crumbling some fresh graham crackers over your favorite Greek yogurt flavor for a pie-like treat that packs a lot more energy and nutrients.

Yogurt with a Chocolate Heart on Top

Cocoa Powder and Dried Cranberries

If you want a chocolatey treat that’s not too sweet, you’ll love a teaspoon of cocoa powder and a sprinkling of dried cranberries mixed into plain Greek yogurt. This combination offers chocolate flavor and chewy texture without masking the tang of the yogurt. Like sweeter tastes? Add a few chocolate covered almonds, cranberries or cherries.
