I first came up with this chia yogurt power bowl recipe years ago when I was teaching yoga sculpt. It was a breakfast favorite of mine because of how much protein and fiber is packed into one bowl. It’s truly the perfect healthy bowl to start your day off with. Plus, it only takes 5 minutes to make, perfect for busy people trying to eat more whole foods but don’t have a ton of time!

“This recipe is outstanding. I am enjoying my second bowl today! I am following a low carb high protein diet and this power bowl is perfect for breakfast or a healthy (sweet snack). I topped my bowl with fresh berries, cinnamon and some grain free granola. I am happy to have found this recipe and your website. Thank you!”Kristin

This chia yogurt power bowl recipe is one of our favorite things to prep at the beginning of the week (along with our overnight oats). We love having this healthy, fibrous, nutrient-dense snack on hand at all times. The consistency is similar to chia seed pudding, but it tastes more like yogurt, and we’re obsessed. Plus, you can customize it with your favorite toppings and truly make it your own!

What You Need for this Chia Seed Yogurt Recipe

  • Non-fat plain Greek yogurt: We added non-fat plain Greek yogurt to our power bowls for extra protein and a creamy texture. You can use any fat percentage you like for these bowls. 
  • Chia seeds: Chia seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition and are packed with fiber and healthy fats. 
  • Vanilla extract: Adds a slight vanilla flavor. 
  • Milk: Any kind of milk will work for this recipe! Some great options would be almond milk or coconut milk!
  • Honey: We love using honey as a natural sweetener! It’s just a hint of sweetness without any refined sugar.

here’s a tip!

Make sure your chia seeds are fresh, as old chia seeds may not soak up the milk as much, resulting in a super watery yogurt bowl.

Make It Your Own

You can, of course, use any kind of milk you want and the same as the sweetener. Maple syrup or agave would work perfectly in place of the honey. As for the toppings, that’s where this bowl can get super “powerful.” We like to top ours with our favoritegranola along with some blueberries, raw pecans, chia seeds, and fresh lemon zest. MMMMM. If you want to add some healthy fats, drizzle a little almond butter or all-natural peanut butter on top!

How do I store this Chia Greek Yogurt Bowl?

We like to make our yogurt chia seed pudding at the beginning of the week and store them in single-serve airtight containers or glass jars. They’ll last in the fridge for up to 5 days!

Serving Suggestions

  • Scrambled Eggs: A simple combo that packs a protein punch!
  • Avocado Baked Eggs: The creamy richness of the avocado baked eggs complements the lightness of the yogurt chia bowl, giving you a satisfying and nutritious start to your day.
  • Turkey Fajita Egg Cups: Try turkey fajita egg cups with yogurt chia seed bowl for a protein-packed breakfast.

Hi Emma! You can keep this in the fridge for up to 5 days if it is sealed in an air tight container. I would just make sure that you don’t store it with any fruit in it or it will get funky!
