Yogurt isn’t a popular choice when thinking about desserts. And to be honest, I wasn’t crazy about the flavor during my younger years. 

Yogurt Parfait with Berries

But as I grew older (and more health conscious), I became fond of the nutrient-packed yogurt.

I like to include it not just in my breakfast meals, but also in desserts!

Making yogurt desserts is a wonderful way to enjoy sweets with less guilt. Using full-fat Greek yogurt equals more flavor.

Here are 24 of the most delectable yogurt desserts that prove just how delicious healthy treats can be.    

1. Greek Yogurt Cheesecake

Creamy, delicious, and healthy, having this Greek yogurt cheesecake seems like a dream!

There are no eggs or cream cheese, but you’ll still get that irresistible creaminess and custardy texture.

Plus, the dessert is high in protein, thanks to Greek yogurt.

This cheesecake needs to be refrigerated for at least 8 hours. The wait is totally worth it because by then, it will be perfectly firm and more flavorful!

2. Yogurt Parfaits

The French word “parfait” literally translates to “perfect,” which is the best word to describe this layered dessert!

Classic ingredients from American parfaits are included in this recipe, such as granola and yogurt.

The granola mixture offers a lovely crunch, while the strawberries and bananas bring a refreshing sweetness.

3. Greek Yogurt Brownies

These guilt-free brownies are made with Greek yogurt, unsweetened almond milk, chocolate, and pantry staples.

And no, you won’t taste the tangy yogurt in these chewy, ooey-gooey brownies. The yogurt is just there to replace the oil and butter!

Want a healthier dessert? Make these brownies vegan by using soy yogurt and a dairy-free chocolate bar and chips.

4. Greek Yogurt Chocolate Pudding

Looking for a yummy, easy, and chocolatey dessert? This recipe is your ticket. No stovetop is required, and all the ingredients might just be in your pantry right now.

This pudding is light yet creamy with a heavenly choco taste from cocoa. Meanwhile, the full-fat Greek yogurt adds a subtle tangy flavor.

The best part is it magically turns into a mousse if you keep it in the fridge for a few minutes! 

5. Greek Yogurt Mini-Chocolate Chip Cookies

This dessert is a healthier take on classic chocolate chip cookies. There are no trade-offs because you’ll still get the soft and oh-so-chewy texture!

Full-fat yogurt is the ideal ingredient for cake-like mini-cookies. You can reduce the calories further by using a natural sweetener.

6. Lemon Berry Yogurt Cake

Among all the yogurt desserts on this list, this cake reigns supreme when it comes to fruity flavors and decadent moistness! 

The freshness of lemon and berries team up for a summery, slightly sweet taste. And thanks to yogurt, you’ll devour a super soft cake with creamy moisture.

7. Yogurt Jello Fluff

Sweet but low in calories, this yogurt Jello fluff only needs two ingredients. It’s one of the easiest yogurt desserts out there!

Just blend sugar-free gelatin and yogurt for a couple of minutes, and you’re done. For added flavors, feel free to top the yogurt fluff with your favorite fruits.

8. Yogurt Donuts

These yogurt donuts are a wonderful dessert for breakfast, especially when paired with a cup of coffee or milk.

Drop, fry, and sprinkle with powdered sugar — that’s all you’ll need to remember when making this dessert. You’ll be done in less than 45 minutes!  

9. Frozen Yogurt Bark

This frozen yogurt dessert is a nice change from the usual chocolate bark. 

Topped with chopped strawberries, desiccated coconut, and chocolate chips, this yogurt bark is truly a crowd-pleaser.

It’s as lovely as it’s delicious, so you may have trouble choosing whether to take a bite or a picture first!

10. Frozen Yogurt

WARNING: You might not look back to the store-bought version upon learning this recipe for homemade frozen yogurt.

You’ll only need three ingredients, a mixer, and of course, patience if you’re making it for the first time. 

If you always keep a stock of Greek yogurt, you can make this dessert anytime. Simply mix with raw honey and vanilla, and freeze for 2 hours!

11. Blueberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles

These popsicles are such a delight to eat with their creamy texture, bright flavors, and charming, swirly look! 

They’re perfect as a summer treat, but of course, you can make them any time you need an easy fix for your sweet cravings.

Any yogurt works well for this recipe. Although you may want to get a blueberry-flavored one for extra oomph! 

12. Baked Yogurt

Yes, you can bake yogurt, and it creates an incredibly creamy dessert that melts in your mouth. The thicker the yogurt, the creamier the dessert! 

This Indian-style dessert is flavored with jaggery and cardamom. Feel free to add in fresh fruit pulps for a refreshing baked yogurt.

Enjoy the moist texture from Greek yogurt, the extra citrusy flavor from lemon glaze, and the heavenly smell that’ll fill your entire home.

Sweet, buttery vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting — aren’t they a fantastic treat?

The frosting is light and creamy, garnished with fresh slices of strawberries.

15. No-Bake Greek Yogurt Tart

Meanwhile, the filling includes plain Greek yogurt and fresh fruit slices. Drizzle with honey on top for extra sweetness!

16. Greek Yogurt Chocolate Mousse

Put a healthy spin on a quintessential dessert using Greek yogurt. This recipe creates something that tastes just like chocolate mousse with a yogurt-like texture.

The chocolate mixture is already flavored with honey and vanilla, but you can take it up a notch by using raspberries and extra yogurt for toppings.

17. Yogurt Fruit Salad

This salad is chock full of fruity flavors from apples, bananas, grapes, raspberries, and so much more! You can add or remove fruits depending on your taste.

The dressing is simply a non-fat Greek yogurt with honey, but you’ll get a dessert that’s deliciously creamy and healthy. 

18. Cookie Dough Dip

This single-serving cookie dough dip will satisfy your cravings and amp up your protein intake!

These oatmeal bars take things to the next level. Their chewy banana-oat base pairs well with the creamy yogurt filling flavored with coconut, vanilla, and more bananas!

21. Caramel Apple Crumb Bars

Layers of flavors unfold when you take a bite. Plus, the dulce de leche on top makes these bars the ultimate sweet treat!

22. Yogurt Coffee Cake

This cake pairs perfectly with a hot cup of joe!

It’s made with typical cake ingredients joined by Greek yogurt for a moist texture. 

This coffee cake also has a coarse streusel topping and vanilla glaze, creating a meld of delectable flavors and textures.
