I used to add 1 T. of honey to 0% non-fat Greek yogurt, but have learned to eat it without. I add cinnamon, nutmeg, ground flax seeds, chia seeds and fresh fruit to it, and it becomes a satisfying meal or snack. Love the amount of protein in it!

I've tried the Greek Fage 0% as well as other Fages. Eventually decided (or convinced myself) that I preferred the 2% fat version. Both the texture and flavor are more "yogurt-like".

With the Fage 0%, I felt obliged to stir in a packet of Splenda to make it taste good. However, with the 2%, I don't add any sweetener.

And yes, I tried Fage's whole milk version as well. It doesn't taste any better than the 2%.

Curiously, the 2% has more protein than either Fage's 0% or the whole milk version. That's a nice bonus.

I use Greek Fage 0% fat. Love it with a little honey and fruit, plus I can add it to lots of thing instead of sour cream or cream cheese.

I eat my yoghurt plain as well since Dannon, Yoplait and any others I have tried go overboard with the sugar or additives.

I usually get the plain yoghurt with the lowest concentration of sugar I can find with the least amount of junk in it. I just use fresh fruit and a smidge of splenda if I need it a little sweeter.

I don't have the patience or time to make my own yoghurt. I've tried non dairy yoghurt and haven't found one yet that I can get used to or tolerate. I avoid meat and most dairy~

I have been eating 2 containers of Light&Fit every day for years, so when I started a Clean eating challenge this month, I made it as my "exception". It only took about 2 weeks of reading labels to realized I should consider changing out my yogurt routine.

I also do NOT want to make my own yogurt.

So I have been working on plain greek, or stoneyfield lowfat vanilla. I have been adding frozen blueberries and a tsp of raw honey. It is really quite good.

This week, I plan to skip buying the traditional, and go with my own combo for the week. I'm looking forward to it!

I agree with you, Pam. I like to have more fruit in my yogurt than is provided with the fruit/yogurt prcessed containers. Thanks also for sharing the great serving suggestions :)

When I first started re educating myself about food and calories I started using the plain, non-fat yogurt or Greek yogurt -- mostly because it is so versatile and the lowest in calories.

I discovered quickly that every 'brand' has different additives. I have also discovered I prefer a heavier concentration of fruit with my yogurt than the pre-mixed fruit versions.

I also make my own sauces, gravies, salad dressings, spreads, and dips which are, many times, yogurt based. I add it to my re-structured apple cake or banana bread recipes too. I especially LOVE frozen blackberries and yogurt with honey or other sweetener. I do about 1/2 berries and 1/2 yogurt, blend well and put in the freezer for a few hours. Yummy!

ALL of which I control the sweetening, amount, type and calories.

Update! NO MORE Wiggle room on my weight! Still figuring out how to keep balance and stay in charge. Staying active but could step it up again.

I agree with this totally. All the yogurts I found were too sweet and had too much sugar also. I've been making and eating kefir for the last year and will stick with that. I grabbed a couple greek yogurts with fruit at the store a few weeks ago because I hadn't had a chance to make another batch of kefir. Needless to say, I couldn't even finish one. Next time I will definitely grab a plain greek yogurt.

It's so funny that you should mention it, because yogurt was the foodstuff that got me into eating clean in the first place! Years ago, I gave up sugar for Lent, and I looked at brand after brand of yogurt to find just one that did not contain high fructose corn syrup or sugar in other forms. There were none, except for plain old plain. Like you, I add my own fruit and honey and it's way more enjoyable than the sugary stuff.

Isn't it SCARY how much sugar manufacturers can manage to cram into an otherwise healthy food?! Soooo much better your way!

Just used Google - there are 17grams of sugar in one Tablespoon of sugar and there are three teaspoons in one Tablespoon. So....the yogurt had three times as much sugar as I am used to eating. I guess I learned something new today.

Wow oh wow! I was so excited to see that Chobani now has a greek yogurt with fruit and steel-cut oats added to it. I thought I would give it a try. Now, I have been eating plain yogurt where I add fruit, some whole oats and 1 teaspoon (yes, I measure) of honey. The Chobani packaged read 17 grams of sugar which I didn't think was that much, but I have no idea how many grams of sugar fit into one tsp. Well........it was so sweet I could barely eat it!

I don't know if I have cleansed my palate recently or my sinuses finally opened and I am actually tasting things for the first time!
