    It is no secret that I love yogurt. I use it in everyday cooking and baking, dollop it on tacos and also use it in traditional ways, like making delicious and easy yogurt bowls for breakfast.

     Many folks are surprised to hear about my obsession with yogurt. Not just any yogurt. FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek Yogurt. FAGE is thick, creamy, nutritious and naturally delicious. Not every yogurt can say that.

    A cool, creamy bowl of plain yogurt is like a blank canvas waiting to be painted. It can handle virtually any flavor profile, making it the most versatile ingredient in the whole kitchen.

    Its uses are endless and can be traditional or outside of the box, like using it in baking, for thickening and to add the creaminess factor to sauces. I even use it as a salad dressing, marinade base and to replace sour cream.

    The trick is not using just any plain yogurt, it needs to be FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek Yogurt. Beyond taste and texture, I feel good about feeding FAGE to my family. It is Non-GMO Project Verified, rich in protein, a good source of calcium and has no added sugars.

    FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek Yogurt doesn’t have to be part of a recipe or used as a condiment either. It is fabulous for breakfast, lunch or as a snack seeing it pairs perfectly with nearly any topping.

    So while you are transforming into the new you this year, think about reaching for a yogurt bowl instead of those leftover goodies to help you stay on track.

    Here are my favorite yogurt bowl topping combinations. I hope you love them too!

    Pomegranate Cacao Nib Bowl

    My Pomegranate Cacao Nib Bowl satisfies several cravings for me. I love the juicy, sweet pomegranate seeds, also known as jewels or arils. They literally pop in your mouth! I buy them already seeded from the fruit to make my life a little easier.

    To add even more textural variety, I add cacao nibs. Cacao nibs are minimally processed products from the cocoa bean. With no sugar added, you get all the benefits of dark chocolate without added sugar.

    In addition to a rich chocolatey flavor, they are also crunchy and pair well with slightly acidic undertones of yogurt and the sweet juiciness of pomegranate.

    Lastly, I added fresh mint. Mint is often thought of as a garnish, but edible and adds a fresh and refreshing quality to this type of dish.

      Citrus Bowl

      Citrus fruits hold a myriad of health benefits, therefore making them the perfect pairing for an all-natural Greek yogurt. While I don’t enjoy the mother of all citrus by itself, grapefruit is an excellent addition to a yogurt bowl.

      While many believe that grapefruit and orange have the same taste, they do not. Juicy and acidic, they complement each other perfectly.

      You can probably start to see a trend here. I like to have a lot of texture and color in my yogurt bowls, so I added pistachios my citrus bowl. Vibrant green and slightly salty, the salt accentuates the other flavors in the bowl.

      Lastly, I top with light agave nectar. A light natural sweetener that is low on the glycemic index. You can also use an amber agave for a slightly maple or molasses flavor.

      Banana Kiwi Bowl

      I also like to refer to my Banana Kiwi yogurt bowl as my tropical bowl. The flavors bring me back to laying on a beach with teal waters lapping at my ankles.

      Thinly sliced kiwi and banana slices are the base fruit, but this time dried strawberries bring the texture. Toasted coconut is the last element to bring the islands to your kitchen.

      Don’t skip the toasted coconut. Toasting not only brings out the aromatics, but also heightens the flavor of your flaked coconut.

      My last bowl is for when I need a break from fruit. It is my protein-packed peanut butter yogurt bowl.

      The creaminess of peanut butter pairs perfectly with FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek Yogurt. Top with lightly salted roasted almonds and a little honey, and you have a flavor balanced breakfast or snack sure to keep your energy levels on point.
