Greek Yogurt in 7 Ways

Excited to announce a new series on The Chriselle Factor, and it’s all about HEALTH & FOOD! Not sure why it took me this long to come around to this subject, but I guess there’s no better timing as my pregnancy is about to end, and my new journey as a mother is about to begin. I’ve always been health conscious, but never did I believe in sacrificing all the yummy things out there just to watch my “diet”. It was when my sister Jane temporarily moved to LA where I discovered the beauty of not only eating healthy, but also having FUN with it. I’m definitely not one who is capable of whipping up a gourmet dinner, I mean….I can barely make a pancake without burning the whole house down! (I’m sure this will have to change once Chloe arrives.)  All these recipes and food related articles will be incredibly easy, and I promise if I can do it you can too (with your eyes closed).

I wanted to kick off this series with one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast- Greek yogurt! Besides the thick consistency and yummy taste, I could go on and on with the benefit of Greek yogurt- it’s packed with probiotics, a great source of protein, packed with B12, etc etc. But besides that it is incredibly versatile and makes for a heavenly, creamy treat! Since I’ve been pregnant, greek yogurt has been more than just a grab-and-go snack to default to when nothing is in reaching-distance. Now that I’m homebound more, I’ve had a lot more time to think of creative ways to add to my yogurt. Here are 7 ways to add a little more flavor to your greek yogurt in the morning, one for each day of the week!

PS. You might noticed my recommended fruit measurements are a bit higher (1 cup vs 1/4 cup) and that’s because I like to have my yogurt with a side of fruit! If you guys are only looking to add fruit into your yogurt, then feel free to substitute 1 cup for 1/4 cup.

    They all look good and I can’t wait to try each of them. But why don’t you learn to cook, it’s not like you have an excuse not learning it. You have money and there are classes. Just feel like it’s a vital part of life to know how to cook. I learned it from my mom and I hope you teach Chloe to cook, it’s a big part of survival.

  • AC says:

  • Antonia says:

    Hey Chriselle, huge fan here. I just wanted to say that the bacteria they use for yogurt is called Lactobacilus Bulgaricus – as in – it comes from Bulgaria. Yogurt is a word from old bulgarian that is used all over the world yet people still say “greek yogurt” that sort of pains me a lot :(

    Good post though
    Much love from me
    Toni :)

    I just watched FED UP, the documentary about how unhealthy Americans are eating and we wondering what we could possibly eat for breakfast that didn’t taste awful? Eggs and bacon were out and cereals, even cereals we think of as healthy were packed with sugar. These greek yogurt confections are a great idea – so easy and fresh

  • I’m also obsessed with greek yougurt and it’s one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast! Thanks for sharing these options, should definitely try them! My first one probably would be ‘Cookie Dough’ (yep, it’s all my sweet tooth!).

    Here’s another variation, that I’ve been enjoying recently: greek yogurt + honey + cinnamon + dates <3 Yum!

    All of these look delicious.

    I do have to point out though that your chocolate pudding one has a misprint. You listed cocoa butter as an ingredient, but I think you meant cocoa powder.

  • Katherine says:

    Oh I love them all! But if I had to choose only one, I think I would go with the “Strawberry shortcake” yogurt. But more than Greek yogurt, I like the Turkish version, it’s a bit tastier to me.

    Sending you love from Scandinavia!
