Stir in some vanilla flavoring and a little splenda.

Stir in some cocoa powder and a little splenda.

On Phase 2, stir in some fruits.

my favorite on p1 -- and still to this day, actually -- was plain, fat-free greek yogurt (but regular works fine too), cinnamon and splenda. I still eat it all the time and I'm far beyond p1.

I usually eat non-fat plain greek yogurt daily, now. Sometimes, if I have it for breakfast, I'll add a handful of blueberries and a few chopped almonds. If it is a snack, I'll usually just stick with cinnamon and sweetener.

I am using fat-free Greek yogurt and it is wonderful & creamy. I just started using it for the first time a few days ago and I'm very pleased with it. I mixed in purple/red grapes and it's a delicious sweet treat. I did mix in a bit of vanilla and a tiny bit of splenda yesterday. It was "OMG" good, seriously.

I like mine mixed with any crystal lite flavour (tho lemon is my fav.)
as for how much, my suggestion is add a little at a time, and taste as you go (especially since if you add to much, its a tad nasty.... but the right amount is perfectly delish!)

Hi Lindsay if you think its "bitter" (i think you mean tangy/tart) maybe you can try to find Chobani Brand of Fat free greek yogurt. It's pretty bland on the scale of plain yogurts as far as I'm concerned. I happen to love the tang of true yogurt myself

I have found wonderful extracts/aromas to make my plain yogurt more interesting.
Chocolate extract
Orange extract
Coconut extract (my favorite)
Imitation Rum (added with sprinkes of cinnamon/ginger)
Almond Extract
Strawberry extract
Sprinkle of Cardamom (it's strong like ginger)
I could go on...extracts can be really helpful and they don't add dreaded calories.

All of these I add a sprinkle of stevia/splenda too to sweeten.
