These Protein Yogurt Bowls are the easiest, protein-packed breakfast. They’re fun to customize with different flavors and toppings, and are great to meal prep, too!
Are these protein yogurt bowls basically just Greek yogurt and granola? Yes (well, amped up a bit). Is it so easy they really don’t need a recipe? Yup! But I wanted to give this meal a home here on Nutrition to Fit, because it’s worth it!
Not every meal has to be complicated or time-consuming to be healthy, balanced, delicious, and helping you work towards your goals. This high protein Greek yogurt is the perfect example of a realistically balanced, convenient breakfast that absolutely can work for you!
Protein Yogurt Bowls Ingredients
For a full ingredient list with quantities, please check out the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Greek Yogurt: any brand, flavor, or type of Greek yogurt will work. I personally prefer brands with low or no added sugar. You also can use Icelandic yogurts (also higher protein) or quark, too!
- Protein Powder: Again – any brand or flavor you like works here! I often use Optimum Nutrition because they’re a third party-tested, accessible, affordable option that offers whey and plant-based proteins alike. (My personal favorite is their Double Rich Chocolate!) You can also use Naked Whey for an unflavored option, or even Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, too. (These are great as like a blank slate option, because they don’t have any flavors that take away from the other flavors in your protein yogurt bowl.)
- Granola: Granola, cereal, your choice! Target has their Good & Gather brand that has some delicious options, like my favorite Double Chocolate Granola. You can also use protein granola, homemade granola, keto granola, or any of your favorite cereals around the house.
- Fruit: Anything goes! Fresh, frozen, dried – whatever you have or prefer! Note that generally, because dried fruit has been dehydrated, the portion size is typically about half that of fresh or frozen fruit.
- Healthy Fats: Optional, but I love adding some healthy fats for a nutrition boost and to give these Greek yogurt and granola bowls more staying power. Think almonds, walnuts, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, hemp hearts, chia seeds, flax seeds, or even a drizzle of peanut butter.
For complete instructions, please check out the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
- Whisk protein powder into Greek yogurt.

Protein Yogurt Meal Prep
To keep the toppings fresh, I recommend prepping the protein yogurt component ahead of time and keeping the fruit and granola toppings on the side.
You can use any containers you have, but I love these glass 3-compartment meal prep containers from Amazon!
Once prepped, the protein yogurt bowls can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
