3 yogurt bowls with various toppings

What Yogurt Can You Use for Yogurt Bowls?

Greek Yogurt – Greek yogurt is known for it’s thicker, creamy texture and high protein content. Depending on your diet preferences, you can use a full-fat or low-fat version.

Plain / Regular Yogurt –This is the most common kind of yogurt found in grocery stores. There are various flavors available, but it’s recommended to stick to plain yogurt for the lowest sugar content.

Coconut Yogurt – Coconut yogurt is a great dairy-free option. It’s not as thick as Greek yogurt, but it will provide a unique, tropical flavor.

Soy Yogurt – Soy yogurt is another excellent dairy-free, vegan option.

Icelandic Yogurt – This type of yogurt also has a high protein content and has a slightly tangy flavor. It also has a thicker consistency, like Greek yogurt.
