Greek Yogurt - 6 Protein Packed Breakfast Recipes

Greek Yogurt is a quick, protein packed breakfast. I like to add my own mix-ins and create my own flavors versus buying the flavored kind. I like to know what is in it and coming up with my own flavors is fun! Here's a few Greek Yogurt creations I've made recently...


Shelly's Coffee Caramel Nut Greek Yogurt Parfait - a few Tablespoons of Coffee Protein (I used Chike High Protein Iced Coffee,) a squirt to taste of Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Caramel,) a drizzle of SF Caramel Sauce and a few Blue Diamond Almonds.


Shelly's Chocolate Cherry Jubilee Greek Yogurt Parfait - a few Tablespoons of Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Celebrate Vitamins Chocolate Milk ENS,) a squirt to taste of Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Black Cherry,) a few SF Chocolate Chips and frozen, defrosted Cherries.


Shelly's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Greek Yogurt Parfait - a Tablespoon or 2 of Powdered Peanut Butter (I used Chike PB,) a squirt to taste of Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla,) and a few SF Chocolate Chips.


Shelly's Pina Colada Greek Yogurt Parfait - a few Tablespoons of Vanilla Protein Powder (I used Labrada Nutrition Lean Body for Her Natural Vanilla,) a squirt to taste of Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Coconut,) a sprinkle of unsweetened Toasted Coconut, a couple of Blue Diamond Toasted Coconut Almonds, a Tablespoon of Pineapple Tidbits (packed in juice.)


Shelly's Chocolate Mint Greek Yogurt Parfait - a few Tablespoons of Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Celebrate Vitamins Chocolate Milk ENS,) a squirt to taste of Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla,) and a hunk of crumbled Premiere Protein Chocolate Mint Protein Crisp Bar.


Shelly's Almond Joy Greek Yogurt Parfait - a few Tablespoons of Chocolate Protein Powder (I used Celebrate Vitamins Chocolate Milk ENS,) a squirt to taste of Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Vanilla,) and a few SF Chocolate Chips, a sprinkle of unsweetened Toasted Coconut, a couple of Blue Diamond Toasted Coconut Almonds.


Mix in Sugar Free Torani Syrups or sweetener of choice (agave, honey, none), defrosted frozen fruit, fresh fruit, powdered peanut butter, powdered SF pudding or Jello mix, SF drink mix, protein powder, unsweetened cocoa. Add a few goodies (watch the calories) nuts, SF chocolate chips, unsweetened toasted coconut, ground flax, etc. With school starting soon, make a few Yogurt Parfaits on Sunday for an easier week.

Freeze any leftover yogurt in ice cube trays like this or make bite size drops.



Use cubes in Make Ahead Protein Smoothie Bags (another great time saver) or pop out one or 2 when you want a cool treat.


Greek Yogurt is strained to remove liquid whey and lactose and the result is a thicker and tangy product similar in consistency to sour cream with generally higher protein, lower carbs and lower sodium than regular yogurt. I use Greek Yogurt in both sweet and savory ways (dips, salads) on the blog.
