Yogurt recipes aren’t an actual thing for most people.

Usually, the recipe is “buy a yogurt” and the directions are “open the yogurt and eat it.”

And that’s a beautiful thing when you need a quick healthy breakfast or some portable healthy snacks. The problem is that not everyone buys a plain Greek yogurt.

They usually grab the ones that have fruit on the bottom or some sugary deliciousness in the side pocket or some processed crunchiness packaged on top.

Look, I respect that plain jane yogurt isn’t for everyone, and the world needs a little does of flavor at snacktime.

But there are easy ways to dress up a plain yogurt into the dairy version of Cinderella and not feed yourself the added sugar that isn’t fit for fancy.

Here are 5 ridiculously easy yogurt recipes to get you out of your yogurt rut and into some yogurt glass slippers.

5 Yogurt Recipes to Get You Out Of Your Yogurt Rut:

Coconut Cinnamon Yogurt

Before you dash out of the house, channel your inner tropical vacation self, slow down, and grab the jar of coconut butter.

Filled with delicious healthy fats and fiber, coconut butter will help fill you up and give you the energy you need to get through your commute.

And it smells like beaches and bikinis. Add some cinnamon, which may even help reduce stress! Just the smell of this heavenly spice is enough to curb fatigue, ease frustration, and increase alertness.

Can you think of a better way to start your day when you aren’t actually able to climb into a hammock and feel a breeze?


 Peanut Butter Berry Yogurt

Love pb + j? Who knew you could eat it with a spoon! Here’s a healthy twist on this childhood fave, minus all that sugary jelly.

All berries are great for you, but blueberries are all-stars, bursting with antioxidants linked to boosting memory and reducing the normal effects of aging.

The protein and healthy fat in peanut butter will keep you full and satisfied, too, so you won’t be ready to munch again as soon as you get to the bottom of the bowl.


Green Tea Yogurt

Have your tea, and eat it too? Maybe you don’t have time to brew up a cup, but still want to reap the benefits of these green leaves. Here’s a fun way to add another serving of megastar green tea to your day.

By sprinkling matcha powder or green tea on your yogurt, you’ll add a dose of antioxidant power that just may protect your heart, reduce your risk of various cancers, and protect your smile. Say cheese!


Pomegranate Sunflower Yogurt

There’s nothing like the sweet little jewels found inside a pomegranate. Adding the small – but mighty! – seeds of the pomegranate will make any meal a treat.

They’re brimming with polyphenols, which function as antioxidants to fight free radicals and can reduce the risks of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and signs of aging.

Combined with the hunger quenching healthy-fats contained in sunflower seeds,  you’re looking at a bowl of some serious crunchy and creamy deliciousness.


 Avocado Greek Yogurt

Greek yogurt doesn’t have to just be for breakfast! Take yogurt from sweet to savory by whipping in this delicious green fruit.

Avocados contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, fiber, and loads of healthy monounsaturated fats, making them an amazing nutrient-dense addition to any meal.

I love to spread this mix on a fiber cracker when I want to bite into something, or when I don’t have any clean spoons left :).
