Coming up with new and breakfast ideas every day can be hard especially now that I’m making breakfast day in and out for the whole family.  I try to get everyone fed with food that tastes good and is good for us.  As you can imagine, it’s a harder task than it sounds.

If you need breakfast or a fast and nutritious snack idea… look no further than Two Good™ Greek Low Fat yogurt. Yogurt bowls with lots of fun toppings are one thing we all can agree on including the twins!

Breakfast dilemma solved!

Which yogurt do you use for these Greek yogurt bowl ideas?

Today I’m sharing that breakfast idea which starts with a bowl of rich and creamy Greek yogurt topped with fun toppings like fruit, granola, coconut, and nuts!  You are going to love these greek yogurt bowl ideas.

I recently started buying a new type of Greek yogurt, Two Good™, to make with my bowls.  It has a delightfully creamy taste and luxurious texture.  I also feel good buying and serving it because it is LOW FAT, LOW SUGAR, AND LOW CARB!  It’s the perfect base for my yogurt bowls.

Two Good™ actually has 80% less sugar than another Greek yogurt because it’s made with a unique straining process that removes sugar from the milk leaving only 2 grams of sugar in each 5.3-ounce cup.

The individually portioned cups come in convenient four-packs with flavors like strawberry, mango hibiscus, raspberry, blueberry, vanilla, peach, mixed berry, coconut, black cherry, and plain.

For my Greek yogurt bowl ideas, I used the quart-sized container which comes in vanilla or plain.  Each 3/4 cup serving has 90 calories, a mighty 13 grams of protein, 4 carbs and 0 added sugar.

Now that we have our yogurt let’s dive into those greek yogurt bowl ideas!

 

4 Dessert Inspired Greek Yogurt Bowl Ideas

The best way to make a Greek yogurt bowl is to start with a great CREAMY and flavorful yogurt-like Two Good™ and add nutritious toppings like fruit and something with a crunch like granola or nuts.  You need both to get the best flavor and texture.

Any combination of those two things is great BUT I like to add some punch to my Greek yogurt bowl ideas making them dessert-inspired featuring flavors like Chunky Monkey, Strawberry Shortcake, Apple Pie, and Blueberry Muffin. I’m using the vanilla flavor for my bowls because I feel like it gives them that freshly baked flavor you need for a sweeter snack or breakfast.

How to Make the Yogurt Bowls…

  1. Put the yogurt in a small bowl.
  2. Carefully put the toppings on.  To get the nut butter drizzle microwave the nut butter for 15 seconds to loosen it up.
  3. Serve immediately for breakfast or a snack.

These dessert-inspired yogurt bowl ideas are a great option when you start with low sugar, low fat, and low carb greek yogurt like Two Good™.

Two Good™ Yogurt

I picked up my Two Good™ yogurt at Walmart.  You can get it in-store or do curbside pickup or delivery.  I was able to snag a curbside pickup time and it was super easy and efficient.

    I hadn’t heard of Two Good yogurt before and am going to share your post with my daughter-in-law, who is lactose-intolerant, to see if it will work for her. We always love a yogurt bowl and we have to try the chunky monkey, mmm.

    All these bowls look fantastic. Toppings are amazing. Yogurt cups are definitely one of my favorite on-to-go breakfast option. I need to check this low-sugar greek yogurt. Sounds delicious and healthy.
