Yogurt is a favorite for breakfast and snacks. But instead of going for the pre-sweetened ones, add your own fruit and flavors to plain whole yogurt for a healthier version.

Flavor-your-own Yogurt

Try this instead of pre-sweetened yogurt.

  • ¾ cup plain whole yogurt, or Greek, if you prefer (Whole yogurt is much less tart than the low- or non-fat varieties so it doesn’t demand extra sweeteners.)
  • ½ cup sliced or chopped fresh or defrosted frozen fruit (bananas, berries, peaches or apples)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon—adds sweetness without sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons sliced, slivered, or chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans or nuts of your choice)
  • 2 Tablespoons plain, unsweetened (or very lightly sweetened), crunchy cereal, such as Grape Nuts. (unsweetened (or very lightly sweetened).)
  1. In serving bowl, mix yogurt with cinnamon.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and stir.
