Default Just Yogurt and Fruit

I really love yogurt. But the packaged kinds are filled with corn syrup and/or artificial sweeteners, and nasty dyes and chemicals. Bleck. So I made my own concoction with just yogurt and fruit and it's so yummy!

Just Yogurt and Fruit (2 servings)
6 oz. Chobani plain Greek yogurt
1/2 6-inch banana, cut into chunks
4 large strawberries, sliced
1/4 C. fresh blueberries

Whir it all up in a food processor until it's blended but still a little chunky. Eat immediately or freeze for 30-45 minutes until slightly frozen but not solid.

Per serving:
Calories 94; Carbs 14; Fat 0; Protein 10

I have the same thing except no blender, I don't prefer that. And toasted almonds stirred in

For years, I've been making my own yogurt cups. I use soy yogurt now but just buy any frozen fruit (berries work best I think), use 1 cup tupperwares, spoon in some plain unsweetened yogurt and fruit of your choice. Best to let it sit overnight in the fridge to allow fruit to melt.

I guess I didn't have a revolutionary idea. But the reason I was excited is because it tasted like packaged kinds. I've been trying to do the "stir fruit into yogurt" thing for a couple weeks, but it just never seemed blended and the plain yogurt still seemed too obvious (and I think it's got a weird tangy/bland flavor).

I have a new yogurt love, too!

Prepare the night before:

1/2c blueberries
cinnamon to taste
freshly grated lemon zest to taste + 1tsp-1Tbs lemon juice if you like it lemony (I do!)
Honey or sweetner to taste (I add 1 pkt splenda)

Microwave all on high for 1-2 minutes & mash with a fork or the back of a spoon. Cover & chill in the fridge overnight.


Fold in your plain, 0% fat greek yogurt the next morning & VOILA! some of the best tasting fruit-based yogurt I've ever eaten. I am addicted to this!!!

my yogurt & fruit favorite (I'm on the F Factor diet and working with a nutritionist at Tanya Zuckerbrot nutrition)

0% greek yogurt
frozen berries (blueberries, rasp or black) heated for a minute or until warm in the microwave. Mix stir in a little Spenda for sweetness
and if you're doing carbs: 1/2 cub of Fiber 1
