Let me start with information about creamy and healthy Greek yogurt:

Greek yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, which can help improve bone health. It also contains probiotics, which support a healthy bacterial balance in the gut. Eating Greek yogurt may be associated with lower blood pressure and a lower risk of type 2 diabetes.

What is the difference between Greek yogurt and regular yogurt?

Greek yogurt is yogurt that has been strained to remove its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency than that of unstrained yogurt, while preserving yogurt’s distinctive sour taste.

Since Greek yogurt bars are so cute with daisies, I would recommend you garnish any shape  of your yogurt pie with them since the flowers are edible:

The ordinary daisy (Bellis perennis) that you see in lawns is an edible flower. Flower buds and young leaves can be added to salads or eaten in sandwiches. They can be used as an ingredient of soups, pickled as a susbstitute for capers and used to make wine.

Daisies have a beautiful name on Latin: Bellis Perennis, translated to English it is Beauty Everlasting.
