I like yogurt, but I am definitely not a fan of the way plain yogurt tastes. Does anyone have any recipes or suggestions conducive with Phase 1 to spice up this bland breakfast item? Thanks! :rolleyes:

I like to add cinnamon and Splenda to it. You can also add SF syrups such as DaVinci or Torani.

Here's something I posted in the desserts section. It is phase one and when made it has the consistency of yogurt, flavoured with yummy fruit flavoured crystals. Let me know what you think.

yes this is phase one and so amazingly quick and simple and great for anyone missing this fabulous combination of fruit. i'm usually really lazy after i get home from work and don't even think about food until 8 pm so when i've already hassled with a meal i don't want to take the time to fix a dessert. today i just got a little crazy and came up with this great thing.

tastes a bit like those minigo or whatever they're called... those fruited cheese things. feedback would be appreciated.

Orange Banana Strawberry Blend

2 cups cottage cheese
1/4 packat of crystal light orange banana strawberry blend
1/4 c. skim milk.

blend together

I tried the Orange Banana Strawberry Blend and LOVED it - it tasted EXACTLY like fruit yogurt! Thank you! Breakfast has been saved :)

Can't remember where I got this recipe but I now use it all the time. Mix a package of your favorite s/f, f/f jell-o with 1 quart of plain, fat free or low fat yogurt in a microwaveable bowl. Stir to mix well, microwave for 1 minute, stir well again, microwave for another minute. chill and serve ( I put it into individual containers to make it more convenient.)

I have a friend who actually puts the sugar-free Crystal Lite packets, like the ones for 16.9 oz water bottle, into her plain FF yogurt. I haven't tried it, but she likes it

I tried the plain yogurt with some sf jello and a little splenda. It was really good. I was soooo suprised!

I'm into decadent - I like a small spoon of crunchy peanut butter, some agave, & a generous amount of unsweetened chocolate. Stir until it's mixed well.

Okay, I am a peanut butter and jelly fanatic, but it isn't happening on this diet, soooo, my substitute for PB&J is to take a container of ff fruit flavored yogurt (I like strawberry or blackberry best)and add about 1-2 tsp of PB and stir well. Sometimes I also add a tsp or two of ground flax seed or even whole flaxseed for crunch. I used to wake up during the night with cravings, but, I eat this at beditme and this cured that "night eating". Also, as an FYI, I saw on a morning show recently that low-fat or fat free yogurt is a way to cut your peanut butter calories. You can take up to equal ratios of peanut butter and yogurt and stir vigorously (or you can choose 1/4 yogurt and 3/4 PB)--cuts the peanut butter calories and essentially tastes the same--only drawback here is that, once you add the yogurt, the PB has to be refrigerated.

The best thing that happened to me with plain yogurt was trying Greek yogurt. Less sour. I actually found the Trader Joe brand to be less sour compared to Fage, but others think the opposite.

I use 1 packet of splenda and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Tastes like regular french vanilla yogurt!

A couple of things
I know I don't always like the sharp taste of some yogurts, but since I have been making them myself, I control how much tang is in it. One of my favorites is to make a copycat Activia by using a container of it as the culture. And it only takes 5 hours to firm up. Siggis, OTOH, takes only 3 hours to firm up and is tang free at that point... the longer you culture the product, the sharper it gets.

add a tsp of Sugar Free Jam (I like the high fiber one), it makes it sweet, I also like this for dessert

I like to take a box of ff sf lemon jello and mix it with a little bit of splenda (probably 5 or 6 packets) and mix . then i top it off with a little ff cool whip and mix around. VERY GOOD b/c I cannot do the plain either.

I buy bottles of sugar free syrup at Starbucks. I add a few spoons to my cup of yogurt. Last night I tried adding unsweetened cocoa powder in as well. Great idea. It was delicious.

Here's a better idea. I mixed it with splenda and vanilla bean and put it through my ice cream maker that's been collecting dust in my basement for months. YUM! (I know it's not really breakfast, but yum!)

I don't use artificial sweeteners, so I have been playing around with spices to add to the yogurt to make a little more tasty without using sugar...

yesterday I used vanilla extract and cinnamon (lots of cinnamon!)
today I used a bit of vanilla extract and ground ginger - the vanilla smooths the tang, and the ginger is quite spicy! Totally different than the sweet yogurts we all usually eat, but tasty!

Great idea! I don't use artificial sweeteners either, so I've been either eating it plain or with cinnamon. I'll have to try the van/ginger combo. Love, love anything with some kick! I did try unsweetened cocoa powder - YUM!
