High-protein foods are more popular than ever, and consumers who seek a wholesome, meatless meal option are increasingly choosing yogurt-based entrées. In fact, Bulk Yogurt sales have grown 10% in the last year1.

Non-commercial operators have been leveraging the healthy reputation of yogurt to keep patients and patrons satisfied. New options with yogurt as a main ingredient include:

Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie Bowls

Everything seems more fun when it’s eaten out of a bowl. Smoothie bowls turn a sippable beverage into a spoonable dish that’s perfect for breakfast. Start by mixing up your favorite smoothie, then topping with fruit, granola or nuts. There are endless possibilities!

Overnight oats

Overnight oats

This breakfast dish requires just a bit of mixing the night before, and is ready to go for a no-cook option at the breakfast rush. Just stir bulk yogurt and rolled oats together, spoon into serving containers, and refrigerate overnight.

Blenderless smoothies

Blenderless smoothies

Keep the blender in storage. Now you can deliver smoothie-machine results in a fast, consistent method, using just bulk yogurt, applesauce and fruit juice. Delicious, refreshing and a great way to provide much-needed nutrition to your patients.

Flat parfaits

Flat parfaits

Take your parfait business in a new direction and try this “flattened option”. A small to-go container allows you to assemble parfait ingredients. Then patients and patrons can create their own individual spoonfuls of fruit, granola, and creamy yogurt. The best part is that you can customize with on-hand ingredients.
