Greek Yogurt ~ my new favorite breakfast

Greek Yogurt & Chocolate PB2 ~ WOW!!  It's like eating a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup - without the guilt!  Thick, rich chocolaty-peanuty taste ~ perfect!

I'm a recent convert to Greek yogurt.  I've always liked yogurt, especially when I would strain it overnight & it would become so rich & thick tasting ~ I've been making it that way for years.  I guess I was making 'Greek-style' yogurt before it was cool.  Now, Greek yogurt has become the golden child of the yogurt aisle & it seems every manufacturer is on the bandwagon.  It's more expensive then regular yogurt, but it's also much higher in protein.  It's a condensed form of yogurt & since it takes more milk to create this extra thick yogurt, I do understand the price difference ~ I just wasn't willing to pay extra for it ~ except for a small container, here & there, if a special recipe called for it.  But, then...

Greek Yogurt, Raw Oats, Fresh Fruit & Nuts ~ the peaches came from a neighbors tree.  They're smaller than what you get in the markets, but they more than make up for it in their sweet, ripened-on-the-tree, taste.

On a recent trip to Sam's Club, I noticed that they carried the large container size of ~ Fage brand of Greek yogurt ~ for substantially less than my local market, so I decided to get some.  So glad I did!  Now I can use it everyday, in whatever way I like ~ eating it in a bowl for breakfast, as a snack, cooking with it in recipes, in desserts or in smoothies.  It's now my go-to stand in for sour cream; when sweetened & mixed with a bit of fat-free cream cheese, I use it in place of mascarpone cheese; & when hand whipped, I use it in place of thick whipped cream in some cold desserts.  I like to get the non-fat variety, so it's a guiltless pleasure we can all enjoy ~ I like the sound of that. 



  1. Looks like a great idea! Curious, how much of the PP2 do you add? Do you also add an additional sweetener? Thanks!

    1. Hi Trixie!
      I usually add 2 heaping spoonfuls of PB2, but sometimes I'll add a bit more, depending on my mood. I will occasionally bump up the chocolate flavor with some unsweetened cocoa powder too, stirred in at the same time. I add a packet (or 2) of Equal, or sometimes honey/maple syrup. It all really depends on how strong my sweet tooth/chocolate craving is that day. :)
      Thanks so much for stopping by & commenting ~ Cheers!
