These Mediterranean diet inspired Greek Yogurt Bowls take a simple ingredient and use a variety of fresh fruits, assorted nuts, and drizzles of peanut butter and honey to create a delicious and healthy breakfast or snack idea.
Please note, this recipe was originally published to The Domestic Dietitian in 2018, but the pictures and recipes have been updated and reshaped.
Greek Yogurt – A Most Memorable Meal
Years ago, my husband and I took an epic vacation to France, Italy and Greece. It was my first time in Europe and let me just tell you that I ate my way through each country we visited! Not to mention that this trip was the reason we changed the focus of The Domestic Dietitian to a Mediterranean Diet website.
Aside from the greek salads and fresh calamari, one of my favorite foods while traveling in Greece was actually a simple breakfast dish. A bowl of deliciously creamy and tart greek yogurt, topped with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey.
Nothing fancy or complicated but one of the most memorable dishes on my trip.

A Simple Mediterranean Diet Breakfast
These Greek yogurt bowls make the perfect breakfast (or even afternoon snack) because they are simple and completely customizable, not to mention a healthy choice.
The creamy, tangy Greek yogurt is the base of this recipe. I prefer full fat Greek yogurt because I think it has a better consistency and flavor, which means I am more satisfied with less of it because it’s richer.

Then it’s simply a matter of choosing your toppings…which is my favorite part!
6 Greek Yogurt Bowl Recipe Ideas
There are endless possibilities for creating a breakfast bowl with yogurt and fruit. Some of my favorites include –
Strawberry Banana Yogurt Bowl with Peanut Butter and Almonds
This is the bowl I choose when I’m hungry or need extra fuel after a workout. The recipe is simple:
- Greek yogurt (plain)
- Sliced Strawberries
- Sliced Banana
- Sliced almonds
- Drizzle of peanut butter (or nut/seed butter of your choice)
- Dash of cinnamon
Blackberry and Granola Yogurt Bowl
When blackberries are in season, this is a great use for those plump, delicious berries. I love pairing them with this KIND Peanut Butter Granola, but any kind of nut would work just as well.
Pomegranate and Honey Yogurt Bowl
I used pomegranate seeds when they are in season and I love the little crunch that they add! Plus they are a nutritional powerhouse!

Blueberry and Walnut Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bowl
Probably one of our most eaten flavor combinations. Simple but satisfying. Simply add fresh blueberries and handful of chopped walnuts to a bowl of Greek yogurt and dig in!
Pineapple & Coconut Chia Seed Bowl
A taste of the tropics, right at home! I actually prefer using frozen pineapple in this recipe because sometimes fresh pineapple is just too juicy that it thins out the yogurt.
Simply thaw a little bit of frozen pineapple and add on top of greek yogurt. Sprinkle on a little bit of shredded coconut flakes and then a little bit of chia seeds and pretend you on in the tropics!
Greek Yogurt with Raspberries & Pecans
Yet another fruit and nut variation…see what I mean when I say they are super customizable? Juicy raspberries and hearty pecans compliment each other so well in this recipe. If you prefer a little sweetness, consider a drizzle of honey to bring everything together.
My Tips for Making it at Home
- Use seasonal fruit whenever possible
- Plain Greek Yogurt lets the fruit shine without adding extra sweetness from flavored yogurt
- A drizzle of honey is all you need
- Add chopped almonds, pistachios, walnuts or pecans if you want a little extra crunch
- A dash of cinnamon or sprinkle of chia seeds add a bit of extra warmth/spice
- Frozen fruit works well too, just be sure to fully thaw before using
- If you are using peanut butter (or nut/seed butter) place in microwave for 10 seconds to warm it up a little, it drizzles much better
