Default Plain non-fat Greek Yogurt, it tastes weird!

Please help. I bought a whole tub of plain greek yogurt and it tastes weird. What can I add to it to make it a little sweeter??? It's low carb and high protein. Any suggestions? Thanks

Honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, fruit... the list is endless!

You can add fruit (e.g. bananas, blueberries, mango). I wouldn't recommend adding other sweeteners.

You can also add nuts (it won't make it sweeter but it might make it taste better).

Your tastes will change after not eating garbage for a while, just add some fruit that you like in it and you will be fine

Thank you! I'll experiment with different fruits I tried as a dip with my apple slices... the apples helped. Maybe I'll try mashing blueberries and mixing it in.

That sounds delicious! I have to throw in a second voice on the tastes changing thing too--I used to hate, hate plain Greek yogurt, but the other week I put some raspberries in it and actually didn't mind it. It doesn't seem so non-sweet once your taste buds are used to good food.

Princessroja, I had it again today, and it tasted better. I guess it's an acquired taste.

I sometimes sprinkle trail mix in yogurt as a quick work breakfast.

You should be careful with trail mix and check the ingredients, because some of them have added sugar.

I buy Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt. I add Sugar Free Powdered Flavored Coffee Creamer to mine, but also like it plain. I also use it as sour cream and sometimes add some dry spices to it to make it like dip.

I'm aware of that.

If you want a better than ice cream treat mix it with some part skim ricotta cheese and some berries. No sugar needed.

I use greek yogurt both ways. Sweet and savory. I like to put honey on my GY or for you low carbers probably stick to berries and no calorie sweetener. As for savory, I buy these "Fiesta Ranch" Packets from Hidden Valley. They are a powder mix you use with sour cream...but since greek yogurt tastes nearly the same as sour cream it is perfect! I add some chipotle hot sauce too for extra spice. There's also regular ranch packets you can add if you're not into spicy. Talk about a GREAT condiment to have in your fridge! Works with sandwiches, veggies, and more!
