Greek yogurt is such an underrated kitchen staple! This rich, thick, and creamy yogurt is an extremely versatile ingredient that can add just the right amount of tang to both savory and sweet dishes. My sweet potato tacos with spicy yogurt sauce, acorn squash bisque with Greek yogurt, and these peanut butter yogurt bowls are all extremely delicious, satisfying, and filling meals that wouldn’t be possible without yogurt!

🥘 Ingredients

ingredients for peanut butter yogurt bowl recipe
  • Plain Greek Yogurt: This high-protein milk yogurt is ultra-strained, making it thicker and richer than regular yogurt. Vanilla yogurt would also work well. I like using organic yogurt because the cows it comes from are free of antibiotics and hormones. Stonyfield and Organic Valley are two brands I love.
  • Powdered Peanut Butter: This low-calorie alternative to regular nut butter brings a ton of salty, nutty flavor without adding too many calories.
  • Nut Butter: I like using natural peanut butter because it’s so high in healthy fats, but any creamy nut butter (like almond butter or cashew butter) will work.
  • Stevia: This natural sweetener is derived from plants and is extremely low carb. You can also use monk fruit, or a traditional sweetener like coconut sugar or maple syrup, or leave it out altogether.
  • Toppings: Strawberries, raspberries, banana slices, extra nut butter, cacao nibs, unsweetened cocoa powder, granola, and puffed quinoa are a few of my favorites for this easy peanut butter yogurt recipe.

📖 Variations

This yogurt bowl with peanut butter is a perfect healthy treat that can easily be altered to reflect your own tastes or include ingredients you have on hand! Below are a few of my favorite recipe variations. 

  • Make an ultra-chocolatey banana peanut butter Greek yogurt bowl by adding cocoa powder, ripe banana slices, cacao nibs, and dark chocolate chips. 
  • Yogurt Dip: Replace the nut butter with strawberry jam and use it as a yummy fresh fruit dip
  • Blueberry Pie: Use cashew butter as your nut butter, and add in granola, a dash of vanilla extract, blueberries and chia seeds.
  • Make this dish even healthier by topping your yogurt and peanut butter bowl with chia seeds, unsweetened coconut, hemp seeds, puffed quinoa, almonds, and fresh berries. 
  • Vegan Version: Just switch out the Greek yogurt for your favorite vegan yogurt!
  • Pina Colada Blend: Try adding in coconut shavings, pineapple, sliced banana, mango and a dash of honey!
  • Try blending your peanut butter and yogurt mixture with a frozen banana to create a version that’s a twist on nice cream and has a frozen-yogurt-like consistency

🔪 Instructions

In a large bowl, combine your plain Greek yogurt, powdered peanut butter, creamy peanut butter, and stevia. Mix with a spoon or a whisk until smooth. If you want your yogurt to be super fluffy, use a stand mixer to blend the ingredients.

❓Recipe FAQs

Is Greek yogurt and peanut butter healthy?

While not all combinations of yogurt + toppings are healthy, these peanut butter and Greek yogurt bowls are super healthy for you!

Here’s why:

1) They’re an excellent source of protein (17 g per serving)
2) They’re low calorie (you can enjoy one huge portion for under 200 calories!)
3) They’re low sugar, and low carb (6 grams natural sugar, 8 grams net carbohydrates) – which means that not only do they taste amazing, but they have no added sugar!
4) They’re packed with healthy fats, nutrients, and live cultures that are extremely good for you. The probiotics (good bacteria) in yogurt help boost your immune system and important for a healthy gut.

What goes well with yogurt?

Tangy yogurt is a healthy breakfast base that pairs well with a variety of flavors. I like topping these yogurt bowls with everything from mango chunks to granola to honey! Fresh fruits, nuts, and seeds are always great options.

What happens if you whip yogurt?

When whipped on its own, Greek yogurt doesn’t do much. However, if you add a small amount of heavy cream to your yogurt and peanut butter mixture before whipping, the result will be a light and airy, mousse-like yogurt bowl.

Can you freeze peanut butter yogurt?

Unfortunately, no – freezing this yogurt bowl doesn’t give you frozen yogurt in the way you’re used to eating it! While you can technically freeze Greek yogurt, it will turn into more of an icy popsicle and will become completely hard in the freezer vs. an ice cream or fro-yo consistency (this is due to the water content of the yogurt). Additionally when you defrost or thaw it, it will have a grainy texture vs. the creamy yogurt texture you’re used to. If you want to turn this into frozen yogurt, you’ll need an ice cream maker.

However, you can store any leftovers in the fridge! Just transfer it into an airtight container, place plastic wrap over the yogurt (touching the yogurt so no air can get in), put the lid on, and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.

👨‍👩‍👧 How To Serve

This recipe is totally filling enough to be a meal on its own. However, you can also serve it alongside other breakfast staples like my sweet potato breakfast hash, toasted gluten free bread, and eggs in a basket for a complete breakfast smorgasbord!

💭 Expert Tips

  • For a lower calorie version of this healthy snack, omit the nut butter, double the amount of powdered peanut butter, and top with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
  • For the strongest peanut butter flavor possible, be sure to use plain yogurt. Flavored yogurts tend to dampen the natural flavors in the nut butter.
  • Try enjoying this dish as an after-school snack, filling breakfast, or healthy dessert!
  • Note: Nutritional data does not include toppings.
