I am thrilled to be partnering with one of my favorite brands to bring you some healthy meal and snack ideas!
I keep a container of FAGE Total 5% Greek yogurt in my fridge at all times. It is hands-down my favorite Greek yogurt and ever since I switched to 5% several years ago, I haven’t looked back. It’s insanely creamy and delicious. I’m not lying to you when I say that I can eat this yogurt straight up with no sweeteners or toppings. It’s that good!
For today’s post, I am going to share some yogurt bowl ideas that are NOT the standard Greek yogurt + granola combo but first…let’s cover some of the highlights of FAGE Total.
- All-natural greek yogurt
- Non-GMO Project Verified
- No added sugar (it contains only 7 grams of naturally occurring milk sugar per serving)
- Protein-rich with 20 grams of protein in each serving
- Made with only milk and live active cultures
FAGE Total 5% is the perfect Greek yogurt for a healthy meal or snack. Thanks to its protein punch and fat content, FAGE Total 5% is so satisfying and truly keeps me satiated for hours.
It’s most fun to eat this yogurt with yummy toppings give it even more of a nutrition punch. I have come up five creative combinations that will get you out of the yogurt and granola rut and on your way to a delicious meal or snack!
5 WAYS TO FAGE
1. Sweet Beets
What: FAGE Total 5% topped with honey, pecans, roasted beets and roasted sweet potatoes.
Why: Because we can all appreciate a change from fruity toppings, and the beets, sweet potatoes and pecans are nutritional powerhouses!
2. Chocolate Covered Cherry
What: FAGE Total 5% with honey and unsweetened dark cocoa powder stirred in. Topped with cacao nibs, unsweetened coconut flakes, and cherries.
Why: Because chocolate in all forms is always a good ideas. Cherries, cocoa powder and cacao nibs are all packed with antioxidants!
3. Carrot Cake
WHAT: FAGE Total 5% topped with maple syrup, shredded carrots, raisins, walnuts and hemp hearts.
WHY: Because you knew I had to do a take on my favorite dessert carrot cake, right!? 😉 This mix of protein, healthy fats, fiber and carbs will keep you going all morning long!
4. PB + B
WHAT: FAGE Total 5% with peanut butter and honey mixed in. Topped with diced banana, roasted peanuts, cocoa nibs and a drizzle of honey.
WHY: I turned one of my favorite sandwich combos into a yogurt bowl…peanut butter and banana! Adding nut butters to my yogurt bowls is one of my favorite ways to ensure that it’s both delicious and filling! Also, the salty peanuts with the sweet honey is kind of to die for!
5. Tropical Power C
WHAT: FAGE Total 5% topped with honey, kiwi, banana, chia seeds and orange segments.
WHY: Because kiwi and oranges are both packed with Vitamin C and chia seeds have you covered on omega-3s!
First, I truly hope that you will try FAGE Total 5%. I don’t know if I could be any more of a fan of a food product. I literally always have a tub of this in my fridge and I use it for everything from yogurt bowls to smoothies to aiolis/sauces to a sub for sour cream and MORE! It’s so good and so versatile! And if you want more recipe inspiration, you must visit FAGE’s recipe page where you can find tons of delicious recipe incorporating Greek yogurt!
Second, the next time you find yourself reaching for the granola, I hope you’ll try one of these combos instead! There are so many ways to mix up your meals and snacks to make them interesting and fun to eat…and to keep you on track with making healthy choices!
