Best Toppings For Yogurt

Ah, yogurt. Terry loves it (IYKYK), Greece loves it, my mom loves it, so it’s basically universal—we all love yogurt. But while yogurt on its own is always a win, sometimes spicing up your yogurt a bit with some cheeky little toppings can turn a run-of-the-mill morning into Flavortown, population: you. So let’s all get cultured (because yogurt) and check out this list of the best toppings for yogurt.

Purely Elizabeth Original Ancient Grain Granola

I know, I know. A seemingly boring choice, but granola is an integral part of any good yogurt parfait and in the words of a certain wise Donkey “ain’t nobody don’t love a parfait.” There is just something so satisfying about the sweetness and crunch a solid granola brings to literally any yogurt flavor. Plus, this granola is fancy. Sporked managing editor Gwynedd Stuart called it the “best granola if you want to replicate what you’d get in a fruit-scattered parfait at a nice breakfast spot.” Trust us, this granola is ripe for the brunchin’.

St. Dalfour Strawberry Fruit Spread

You know those fruit-on-the bottom yogurts? You ever wish they’d just put the fruit on top like normal people so you don’t have to dig for it? Well don’t fret my flustered, fruit-on-the-bottom-hating friend, you can, in fact, just buy plain yogurt and slap some delicious strawberry jam on top. And if you choose to do that, we highly recommend St. Dalfour strawberry jam, which looks and tastes “like it was made from fresh strawberries.” Add some strawberries and cream to your mornings. Go on. We dare you.

Local Hive Raw & Unfiltered Honey, SoCal

Yogurt and honey is a classic combo for a classic so-and-so just like yourself. If you are someone who likes their Greek yogurt to be a little sweetened and not just “milk and bacteria” flavored with no sugar involved, then let this honey be your sweet lil pal. Sporked editor-in-chief Justine Sterling described this honey as “incredibly versatile, balancing sweetness with floral notes and herbal notes.” It’s just a super solid honey and you should definitely add it to your arsenal of yogurt toppings.

Everything But the Bagel Seasoning

I know what you are thinking: “But Jessica, I eat strawberry yogurt on the reg and I don’t think this would go together at all!” Okay man, calm down and hear me out: Your strawberry yogurt is safe. But plain Greek yogurt? That stuff is savory as heck. It just is. Dump some of this seasoning from Trader Joe’s in there and you essentially have an onion and garlic dip that is perfect for cucumber dipping or just eating with a spoon. You can apply the same seasoning to cottage cheese and it is FIRE. Just try it. For me. Please?

Fruity Pebbles

There is no way this could possibly taste bad. Ever. With any yogurt pairing. I am a child of the Pebble and the Pebble is king.

TRUFF Black Truffle Infused Hot Sauce, Scallion, Poached Egg, Toast

This probably looks like a strange combo to you, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Plain Greek yogurt is a savory affair. So, why not spice it up with some delicious, complex, flavorful truffle hot sauce and some scallions, and dip a toasty loaf into it?! Truff is a gosh darn delight with its almost BBQ sauce-like level of flavor intensity. Add some browned butter and this is essentially that Turkish dish that was going viral on TikTok a couple years ago. You could also use chili crisp (find our favorites here) instead of Truff. Honestly, you can’t go wrong.
