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
- 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.
