Plain Yogurt Never Tasted So Good

3 ways to spice up that plain yogurt

Make Your Own Yummy Yogurt

  • Yogurt parfait. Layer plain yogurt with fresh or frozen fruit and a spoon of crunchy high-fiber cereal, such as reduced fat granola or Grape-Nuts.

  • Homemade flavored yogurt. Sweeten plain yogurt at home with your favorite flavors. It's much lower in sugar than store-bought flavors. Just stir in fresh or frozen fruit (like frozen blueberries) and a dash (about 5 drops) of vanilla extract (or other extract) or a sprinkle of ground cinnamon. For example, you can make your own pina colada yogurt by mixing 1/8 cup of crushed pineapple (canned in its own juice) and a dash of coconut extract into 1/2 cup of plain yogurt.

  • Nutty toppings. I like to have a nice, nutty, and sweet trail mix in my kitchen at all times. Almonds, pecans, dried fruits, raisins, coconut, and other trail mix favorites come in handy as a topping for yogurt. Choose whichever trail mix suits your taste.
