3 Health Benefits of Greek Yogurt + Delicious Recipes

Greek yogurt has various health benefits, for one who was never a fan of yogurts I have been converted to a believer by my darling sister who is an avid healthy eater and certified Greek yogurt lover.

Greek Yogurt

She loves it so much she makes her own yogurt. Greek yogurt isn’t like your other frozen treats such as ice cream or jello, this is low key while I wasn’t really a fan at first. However, I finally gave it a chance and found myself enjoying it way more than I expected. Now I enjoy it, not only because I have figured out delicious ways to enjoy it but I love that it’s a healthy and guilt-free treat that is filled with all the good stuff and I honestly can’t get enough.

Some health benefits of Greek Yogurt:

First off, Greek yogurt goes through a straining process, this process removes the whey which is a liquid containing lactose (natural sugar found in milk).

I’m not an expert but from my research and experience I have found Greek yogurt to be:

1. Filled with nutrients such as protein, probiotics, calcium, vitamins and so on which is generally great for us.

2. Improves gut health and metabolism as the probiotics help restore bacterial balance within the gut, which is a good thing by the way.

Pin it!

3. It also aids digestion and some studies say it is great for lowering blood pressure. It has been also said to have some mental health benefits. Some studies claim it helps reduce depression and anxiety.

While the benefits of Greek yogurt is an established fact, having ways to enjoy it is paramount as Greek yogurt usually tastes like sour cream. Not to worry though because here are some delicious ways to enjoy Greek yogurt:

A few Delicious ways to enjoy Greek yogurt:

  • Eat it as a breakfast or dessert bowl with banana, blueberries or even strawberries.  These are my personal favorites.
  • You can also use it to make healthy parfaits my second favorite.

  1. I always have mine with a blend of fruits; strawberries and bananas actually. Now I’m thinking maybe I should try pineapple too… I also use it as a spread for bread but I add a little bit of sugar just to kill the sour taste. I didn’t even know they contained probiotics. thanks for sharing dear
