Snack Attack: Yogurt Experiments

Yogurt was one of the surprises in my eating journey; I’ve learned the value of knowing the difference between “Greek” yogurt and “Greek-Style” yogurt (key lesson: “Greek”-filled with protein and helpful bacteria/cultures and “Greek-Style” full of sugar and little to no protein). I’ve also learned that Greek and Natural yogurt are very versatile foods, you can make anything from pancakes to savoury dips and of course lots of lovely flavoured snacks!

Today’s happy experiment is Cinnamon Maple Crunchy Protein Yogurt!
170g serving: Cals:220 Protein:41.8g Fat:0.6g Carbs:12.8g

It tastes pretty good although I would be tempted to use 1/2 scoop whey isolate to reduce the whey flavour or if you don’t want the added protein switch up the whey for a teaspoon of maple syrup (remember that’s extra sugar calories though). I think the maple syrup/ground cinnamon combo would make a a nicer (& less artificial) flavour so ill definitely be trying it next time!

Also to make it all natural and get some extra protein, try switching the maple pecan crunchies for a handful of walnuts or pecans!

Make it yourself:

  • 170g greek/natural yogurt (I used Fage 0%)
  • Mix in 1 scoop myprotein Cinnamon Danish Whey Isolate (blend may make a smoother mixture but i just mixed by hand)
  • Dash of ground cinnamon
  • top with about 10g crushed Musclefood “Maple Pecan Crunchies”
