Try these Easy High Protein Yogurt Toppings to boost the protein content of your plant-based or traditional yogurt for a more satisfying snack!
There’s no question that yogurt is a convenient and nutritious snack option. Nutritionally speaking, yogurt is a source of calcium, vitamin B12, and Vitamin A (note: nutrient content of different types/brands of yogurt will vary). Some types of yogurt, such as Skyr and Greek yogurt, are also an excellent source of protein, with ~13 and ~11g per 1/2 cup serving, respectively.
Other types of yogurt, such as traditional yogurt or most plant-based yogurt options, are lower in protein, with <4g per serving. While these are still highly nutritious options, we recommend pairing them with a protein source to help make them more satisfying.
