Plain greek yogurt is one of the best foods that you can eat to improve your health. It’s loaded with gut friendly bacteria and high in protein. But plain greek yogurt can be a little boring if you try to eat it several times a week.
Try mixing it up by adding a little flavor with these 5 two ingredient ideas:
Cinnamon + honey (pictured above) – A sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey is just what you need to satisfy your sweet tooth. High protein greek yogurt and blood sugar stabilizing cinnamon are the perfect match for the sweetness of honey because they both work to counteract the potential blood sugar spike that honey causes by itself.
Herbs + garlic – Add a little garlic powder and chopped fresh herbs (your choice) for an easy take on classic tzatziki dip.
Fruit + nuts – Instead of adding sugary granola, try adding fresh fruit like blueberries and a small handful of walnuts. The fruit will add fiber, healthy carbs, and vitamin C to your diet. Walnuts will add healthy fats and nutrients like manganese, omega 3 fatty acids, and vitamin E.
Roasted pumpkin seeds + allspice – Add a little spicy and savory flavors to your yogurt. Roasted pumpkin seeds are high in zinc, magnesium, and manganese. Allspice is anti-inflammatory. Together, the flavors of allspice and the pumpkin seeds have a wonderful spicy fall flavor.
Coconut flakes + pineapple – This is a like a (healthy) pina colada in a bowl. The coconut adds texture to the creaminess of the yogurt, and the pineapple adds a sweet a juicy kick. This is a perfect hot weather ice cream alternative.
