I was having issues with my YouTube account and the video didn’t upload in time for my blogpost. Nevertheless here’s the tutorial.

DIY Yogurt Bar

The natural probiotics that occur in the finest Greek Yogurt is amazing, but finding a good one isn’t so amazing. Unfortunately almost anyone can add Greek in front of their yogurt label. Since there aren’t regulations regarding this ancient food it can be a sketchy marketplace. That’s why I’m writing this FOOD & FITNESS post.

Apparently even Abraham enjoyed the benefits of yogurt; according to Persian traditions.

I did a previous YouTube video that addressed this issue. Basically it’s all about the first two ingredients. [You can learn more here and forward to 2:05 in the video]


Luckily there’s Ellenos Greek Yogurt from Seattle’s Pikes Place Market. And you can tast the quality. 😉

For my yogurt bar I used:

  • 3 Fruits – Frozen organic blueberries, dried mangos, local strawberries. 
  • 3 Toppings – Hemp hearts (hemp seeds), walnuts, mango & guava purée (jam). 
  • 2 Yogurt Flavors – Lemon Curd & Marionberry.  
  • 5 oz Mason jars – to hold this delicious treat.


Making your own yogurt parfait is healthier because you control the ingredients. This idea is perfect for  summer time gatherings or snacks-on-the-go. In fact it’s also cheaper. The last time I bought a Greek yogurt parfait, for an after workout snack, I spent $5.85, not including tax. The issue I had was the quality, it definitely wasn’t Greek yogurt! However a 16oz tub of Ellenos is about $6.00 and I can make about 2-3 parfaits. 


The 5oz Mason jar is the perfect portion control. Adding the frozen berries gave it a refreshing taste. Along with the dried mangoes that was a fun chewy texture. And topping it off with strawberry chunks was the perfect combination.

I actually did a YouTube video about all the ingredients. Unfortunately it’s taking longer to upload than I expected. So stay tuned. 

Update since the original post. Here’s the tutorial post
