Greek Yogurt Mix-Ins Jars for Snacking or Breakfast
This post is sponsored by FAGE; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
February is American Heart Month. This is a month of reflection for me since my dad died so young of heart-related causes. It makes me want to be as healthy as possible to be able to hopefully live a long life.
One of the best ways you can live your best life is to eat nutritious foods, exercise, and make smart decisions with your lifestyle. For me, living my best life is eating foods I might love in moderation and getting daily exercise.
The Best Greek Yogurt Brand
Eating nutrient-packed foods like FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt with wholesome toppings is also super important. I love
FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt because it is protein- rich, super thick & creamy, and all-natural.
FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt is perfect for a lower carb lifestyle because it contains no added sugar, and is made with only milk and live, active yogurt cultures. It is also an excellent source of calcium making it my choice for snacking or breakfast.
Greek Yogurt Mix Ins
While FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt is perfect for smoothies, and as a sour cream substitute it is also yummy with mix ins! Today, I wanted to share how I prepare some weekday snacks using wholesome mix ins and Greek yogurt.
Fresh Fruit & Greek Yogurt
The naturally sweet, fresh fruit pairs so well with the FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt. Fruits like grapes, berries, cantaloupe, and melon are ideal choices.
Raw Cacao Powder, Dark Chocolate & Almond
A fun idea that my husband actually inspired me to try is unsweetened Cacao powder, and paired with some dark chocolate chips and almond slivers. This is super heart-health friendly too (be sure to read up on it) and it makes for a tasty “dessert-like” treat.
Blueberries & Hemp Seeds
My new favorite pantry-must is hemp seeds. These little powder house seeds have so many benefits, and a light, nutty flavor. They go so well with blueberries and FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt.
Apples & Cinnamon
If you love the flavors of apple & cinnamon, this Greek yogurt mix in is for you! Simply mix the FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt with cinnamon, and serve with green apple chunks, and a little more cinnamon on top!
How to Store your Greek Yogurt Mix Ins
I like to make my mix ins ahead of time (about a day in advance when I have time), so I use little 8-ounce mini glass canning jars to store my snacks. When we are hungry, we simply head to the fridge to grab a creation!
If you are ready to make your own Greek Yogurt Mix Ins Mini Jars simply start with the best yogurt base– FAGE Total 2 % Plain Greek Yogurt. You can find it in 3 sizes at your local market. Get inspired with some recipes using Greek yogurt on the FAGE site.
These are all such fun ideas. I love to mix in different things with my yogurt. I keep it healthy, but I also go for the tasty stuff like fruit and dark chocolate. Never milk chocolate. If I have chocolate, I have to at least have the super healthy kind.

I eat fruit and yogurt as a snack while watching TV almost every night. I cannot wait to try FAGE and your tasty combination ideas!
I’m obsessed – the cute little jars! My son might actually eat more yogurt if he could customize it like this.
What a wonderful day starter! My whole family will love this! Looks divine and so easy!

I do not always eat yogurt but I would love to try this with the chocolate. I think it will be just right for my taste. Yes to healthy food!
I love mixing fruit and granola into my morning Greek yogurt! It tastes so good!
