2 weeks ago I started a fun hashtag on Instagram called #DailyYogurt. It’s my way to get creative with snacking while (hopefully) inspiring you to think outside the typical yogurt box.

As I said in my post, Tubs of Greek Yogurt and Bags of Kale Don’t Lie, my journey to eating plain greek yogurt instead of artificially sweetened pre-made cups was a long one, but now, I’m hooked!

I love using creamy yogurt as basis for fun flavor combinations. It gets me eating other healthy things like fruits, nuts and seeds, and really, you can never get bored! I’m NOT saying I’ll never eat another flavored yogurt cup again, but when I’m home and have my pantry at my disposal, I’m a topped plain greek yogurt girl all the way!

Here are 14 of my latest creations starting with a special one for today, Valentine’s Day. :)

As you can see, the possibilities are endless! I’m seriously thinking of starting dailyYogurt.com just for fun. Then I remember how many blogs I have. Doh! Maybe, just maybe someone will sponsor me to do it. *wink* *wink*

Until then (like it will ever happen,) follow along on instagram. I hope to share an idea most days I’m home (i.e. not traveling.) You can also see how much of each ingredient I use if you follow me on MyFitnessPal. Most fall in the 130-200 calories range. Yes, even the chocolate ones! It’s actually pretty easy to do. 1/4 oz of nuts adds just the right crunch when chopped up and drizzling 1/2 tbsp or less of honey ads just the right sweetness.

Have a favorite yogurt topping? Please share! I love getting new ideas.

Happy Yogurt Eating!  :)

    You’re so inspiring! But I have a question…I’m still starting out my journey so maybe it’s a thing that happens with time, but how do you not eat the entire bag of chocolate chips, instead of just adding a couple to your yogurt??? Same thing with nuts…how do you do it!? I know there’s no magic or secret trick but I’m having one heck of a time! Thanks!

      I think it does come with time and the more you weigh and measure and know what a serving is, the easier it gets. I really think controlling your environment at first is very important. I used to pre-portion things out so I couldn’t just grab the bag. Sure there were still some days I’d have more than 1 serving but it stopped that mindless munch action of just grabbing something out of the pantry.

    OK, you’ve convinced me to try Greek Yogurt. My daughter loves it. Can’t wait to try some of these combinations and create some of my own.

    WOW!!!! I am hungry now! ;)

  • Fiona Jesse Giffords

    Seriously you have so many topping ideas with one is simply different from other one. The ideas are outstanding; there are no special items we can easily get it. I like more the honey and apple one.

  • RG

    love it! Yogurt has so much more nutrition than bread, but it can be the same offsetting bland for sweets. Lemon curd on yogurt instead of pie? sugared ginger or toffee bits?

    I was thinking of doing something similar with omelet cut up into triangles like chips, as flavor delivery device for savory foods, like dipping sour cream and onion?

  • micki

  • Shan
