Where are all my Greek yogurt fans? Chances are the majority of you stick to the same ‘ol toppings on your Greek yogurt, but I’m all about stirring things up with FAGE Total Plain Greek yogurt. I could never eat the same thing over and over again, so I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy this protein-rich healthy snack. I’ve been really loving savory Greek yogurt toppings, but my kiddos prefer the sweeter ones, so here are 3 unique Greek yogurt toppings that my family enjoys to help you stir things up a bit (while still keeping it healthy).
For all of these Greek yogurt bowl recipes, it’s important to go with FAGE Total 2% Plain Greek yogurt because it contains no added sugar, is Non-GMO Project Verified, and it’s made with only milk and live active yogurt cultures. These live cultures are so great for your gut health and are the perfect match for all of the recipes below.
The reason I prefer FAGE Total over other yogurts is because I love the creamy texture and the rich flavor of their yogurt. What’s the point of eating if you’re not going to enjoy the flavors, right?

Technically Tzatziki is more of a dip or sauce, but I give you permission to eat it right out of the yogurt cup. You’re welcome!
- Fresh lemon juice
- Fresh chopped garlic (optional)
- Fresh or dried dill
- Diced cucumber (with or without seeds)
Start with a full cup of FAGE Total 2% Greek yogurt. Top with as much fresh lemon juice, dill, garlic and cucumber as you like. Stir. Enjoy!
Two. Cherry Lemonade
Lemon and cherry are two great flavors that work well with Greek yogurt. I prefer to use dried cherries because fresh cherries are a little harder to find year-round, but you can use whichever you prefer. I also found a really great local honey producer that offers whipped flavored honey including lemon and pumpkin.
My kids absolutely love this yogurt bowl recipe and beg for it after school.
- 1 Meyer lemon
- 1 tbsp honey (I used lemon flavored honey)
- fresh or dried cherries
Add as much fresh lemon juice and cherries as you’d like, and stir in the honey to sweeten up the overall flavor. If you don’t have lemon flavored honey, you can just use plain honey and add more Meyer lemon juice to the yogurt. Meyer lemons are a little sweeter than traditional lemons, but if you like that tart taste of regular lemons, feel free to use those.
Three. Everything Bagel
This one is like an everything bagel in a bowl and is my absolute favorite.
You can do a couple of things with these ingredients:
- You can top your bagel with Greek yogurt and sprinkle it with the everything bagel seasoning and enjoy it like a bagel with cream cheese.
- You can make your own bagel croutons and add them to your bowl of yogurt along with the everything bagel seasoning.
This flavor combination is a favorite of mine and I’ve shared it a couple of times over the last few months on my blogs and social pages.
As we are heading into our second month of the year, it’s important to provide yourself with the tools necessary to be as productive as you can. When it’s colder outside, I tend to hide in my cave and not move around as much as I do during the warmer months. Making sure my food habits are healthy ones is so important because the second my blood sugar crashes, it’s like I freeze in my tracks and can’t be productive. And since I work from home, I have to stick to my schedule with little to no snags. Greek yogurt is a great source of protein and is always a great snack choice for me throughout the day.
I hope some of these FAGE Greek yogurt bowl recipes inspire you to try something new. Do you have any great topping recommendations? Let me know in the comments below!
