Default Ideas to make plain yogurt taste better

I can't get used to fat free plain yogurt. Any ideas on how to make it taste better? I tried searching the threads for recipes but had no luck.

Hi

Of course, honey doesn't work for P1. I used the yogurt jello recipe and it suited me fine. Maybe someone else will come up with an idea.

I love the Fage Greek yogurt - I mix in a fruit and an ounce of shredded wheat or all bran.

It is my favorite breakfast!

Add frozen fruit and whip it up in a blender. Use an artificial sweetner is you can/want to.

I like cutting up an apple and sprinkling cinnamon over the top.

Cinnamon and banana is really nice too (and the banana is sweeter).

Oh--sorry, I just realised this is South Beach. I have no idea what would be allowed and what isn't. Anyway. Hope this helps.

I love Fage Greek yogurt with Equal and different flavored extracts, particularly almond and vanilla.

I sometimes mix in some Crystal Lite powder. For hot days I make cacik, a chilled dip or soup.
You can also drain it through a coffee filter in the fridge overnight and blend in onions and herbs to make a "cream cheese" spread.

good ideas! I didn't even think about the SF Maple Syrup! Crystal light and the extracts are perfect too!

Thanks guys!

soften a spoonful of PB (I prefer crunchy) and mix some cocoa powder with that. Add the mess to the yogurt with the allowed sweetener of your choice. I'm in P2 and use agave. Any allowable liquid sweetener will work. I always feel completely decadent when I eat this. It's like a rich, thick pudding.

Should I be looking at specific ingredients that I DON'T want in my plain yogurt? Some of the ingredients in some yogurt is stuff that I have no clue about.

Also, it looks like fat free cream cheese has sugar in its ingredients. Is it not ideal to buy fat free cream cheese?

Check the ingredients on your cc. If there is added sugar, then it's not okay. But I have never seen sugar added to ff cc, unless it's flavored (strawberry,etc.). If you see sugar grams in the nutrition information, but not in the ingredients, then that is the lactose, or natural sugars from the milk, and that's perfectly fine.

Your plain yogurt should only have milk and live cultures as ingredients. Once you are off of Ph1, (fruit and artificial sweeteners) are okay too. What you need to check is if they have added thickeners - corn starch or other. We should not have those.

Hehe, I know of one exception, and it is so weird to me. Trader Joe's has a "Plain Nonfat Frozen Yogurt." I thought, hmm, what an interesting idea. You guessed it, there is added sugar in this plain yogurt! Craziness.
