3 great ways to make high-protein yogurt snacks

Did you know greek yogurt could be one of the best healthy protein-packed snack options?

If you have a hard time reaching your protein goal, consider greek yogurt as a snack option for sure. It is not only high in protein but also has many other benefits:

  • Calcium (improves bone health)
  • High protein (reduces appetite & hunger + builds muscle mass)
  • Probiotics (improving gut health)
  • Iodine & vitamin B-12
  • Boosts metabolism when combined with the (fibrous) carbs & (healthful) fat.

That's why I'm excited to share 3 greek yogurt recipes for a high-protein, low-calorie snack option.
