Greek yogurt is a well-known and loved snack that is widely available. It’s packed with healthy fats and protein and is perfect for satisfying your sugar cravings throughout the day. However, plain Greek yogurt could use some help to taste even better. Here are a few easy ways to add flavor to your snack, particularly if you want to try something different or are up for a little change from the norm.

Different Types and Dips

From nonfat and low-fat to full-fat products, there are many options at the supermarket. If you have been sticking to a particular type of Greek yogurt, you might want to switch things up a little. The full-fat option will make you feel fuller for longer and is the perfect base for savory and sweet add-ins.

You can also try a yogurt dip! The combination of potato chips and yogurt will pleasantly surprise you. Mix Greek yogurt with sour cream or mayo and fresh or dried herbs. You can also add lemon juice, black pepper, or other seasonings. Once your dip is ready, take a bag of your favorite chips and enjoy a movie night with your friends.

Add Some Crunch or Fruit

Many people have added granola or muesli to their yogurt before. However, that’s not the only option you have. Why not get creative and add some nuts or different types of seeds? They’re crunchy and add a lot of fiber to your snack. If you want something savory, you can scoop with chips or chopped veggies.

Mixing Greek yogurt with fruit is another classic move. If you’ve already tried this combination with bananas and berries, you can try it with tropical fruits like pineapple, watermelon, and mango. If you can’t find any fresh fruit, frozen or canned fruits work well.

Try Out the Popular “Sundae” Trick

Take some inspiration from TikTok and make your own “sundae.” Add peanut butter to a cup of plain yogurt, drizzle melted chocolate on top and add whole or chopped peanuts. Leave in the freezer to chill and enjoy your ice cream-like snack!

You might find it odd, but adding a pinch of salt to your yogurt can make it taste even better. Even if you’ve gone for sweet toppings, salt will help combine all the flavors by taking out the bitter taste you often find in higher fat content.
