Hi friends!

As you guys know, I’m teaming up with my friends at siggi’s dairy this year to share some delicious ways to eat their yogurt. I’ve already shared these Berry Farro Breakfast Bowls and these Small Batch Cinnamon Roll Scones. Go check them out if you missed them! Today I’m back with a simple snack idea for you! It’s perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up OR a post-workout snack.

If you’re wondering about the flavor combo, you’re just gonna have to trust me. Sweet potatoes, blueberries and apples are all great with peanut butter so it works well. But if you’re not a blueberry fan, you could use siggi’s vanilla or coconut flavors!

A few more added bonuses? You can make it right in the yogurt container so you don’t actually have to dirty a bowl. And you can prep the sweet potato and apple mixture ahead of time so it’s super easy to throw together in a hurry.

So let’s talk about why this is a great post-workout snack.

I chose siggi’s yogurt because it’s packed with protein which is important for helping muscles repair themselves. Each container of 4% blueberry has 12 gram of protein! Plus it’s made with simple ingredients and not a lot of sugar (the 4% blueberry contains only 8 grams in each cup, which is much lower than other greek yogurts on the market). Also, dairy products like milk and yogurt also contains leucine, an amino acid that can help with muscle recovery. Side note- I love this little graphic to help show why I love siggi’s:

So back to our snack: The sweet potatoes and apples are tossed in cinnamon and roasted to make them extra sweet and they provide carbohydrates which are also important post-workout. Top it all off with a drizzle of peanut butter (each teaspoon will add another gram of protein) a few chocolate chips (if desired)! You’ll get another gram of protein per 1/2 cup sweet potato so your snack could easily have 14-15 grams of protein!

Here’s how you make it:

You could obviously put this in a separate bowl, but added the sweet potatoes right to the yogurt container worked well for me! If you want to add more of the sweet potato mixture – ie more like 1 cup vs half a cup, you’ll probably need a separate bowl. Just depends how hungry you are! This would also be good for breakfast!
