Hi,

I use honey and strawberries or just honey on its own.

Berries. I have Strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. About 100g of each and I sometimes top with a few chopped nuts - about 10g that I get from the baking section. Or I might have about 50g of granola but that is quite high cal so it's less often. It's like eating pudding. :)

Agave Nectar....

Or, a small amount of one of those crystal light packets you add to a bottle of water

I've been having the same problem! There is a low sugar granola that I tried...but it still didn't give any flavor to the yogurt. Blueberries worked well...but again made the sugar content too high. Hope to find something soon!

I sometimes add 1/4 scoop vanilla protein powder to 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt. This gives it a hint of vanilla flavour and adds another 6 grams of protein.

I like to mix it with Kashi Go Lean Crunch cereal...it tastes like granola with a good hit of fiber and protein.

I add 1 pack of Stevia and a fruit to a 1/2 cup yogurt. SOemtimes I add to packs. It tastes really good, even better if I let it sit in the refrigerator all day before I eat it. : ) Cinnamon is really good also with Stevia!

granola and berries, blueberries are the best antioxdants and are sweet/tasty. get granola from the health food section and watch the carbs.

I also have problems with my sweet tooth, If I have a serious sugar craving I buy sugar free hard handies, they are easy to manage as far as calories/sugar/portion. My personal favourite, Werthers sugar free toffee hard candies....yum.

I add frozen mixed berries, and sometimes I add 1/2 cup of Kashi Honey Flax Cereal

I use greek yogurt to make my ranch dressing for my salads! 1 cup container of greek yogurt, 1 packet Ranch dressing mix and use 2% milk to thin it out to the consistency I like (add the milk by the tablespoon, a little goes a long way). An amazing substitute for the high fat, high calorie stuff you get in the bottle and tastes fantastic, not icky like the 'light or low fat' versions on the market, very tasty and satisfying and the ENTIRE recipe has less calories than just 5 or 6 tablespoons of the bottled brands. Then, I cut up broccoli, cauliflower and add little cheddar cheese cubes to make a REALLY satisfying and healthy salad. Yummy!

I know this doesn't quite answer your question, but nobody said you HAD to just eat greek yogurt plain out of the container... LOL

PS~ I use the 2% milk because that is what the family will drink and no point in buying skim if noone is going to use it (I don't drink milk so I let them have what they want. You can make it with skim too.)

Mix some almond butter or peanutbutter in there. It tastes like a dessert!

I like 1tbs flax meal, honey or agave, walnuts, and cranberries! I've done blueberries and honey too though. That's good!

I've done this with chocolate and mocha too. It's delish!

Thanks everyone!! I was trying to eat the yogurt with just blueberries in it.. Not very good :)

Xasper good idea for ranch dressing!! I never thought of that actually I was craving ranch dressing yesterday with my salad but even the light ones have so much fat in it i passed it up.

I just finished 1 cup ff Greek yoghurt, 1/2 cup skim milk, tspn cocoa, cinnamon, scoop vanilla protein and choc fudge sf jello. Unbelievably tasty!

I usually just add fruit to my greek yogurt in the morning, but I like the tart taste of the yogurt. Someone on here (I think in a different post) suggested vanilla extract. I haven't tried that yet, but it sounds like a good idea!

For a yummy treat when I'm craving something sweet and decadent and have calories left over at the end of the day, I mix greek yogurt with a tablespoon of peanut butter (melt it a bit in the microwave first) and a bit of honey. It's delicious! And if I'm really feeling decadent, I crumble a couple graham crackers on top. It's sweet because of the honey and graham crackers, but the peanut butter gives an even thicker consistency...it's delicious!

I like Fage 2% just plain! It's not as tart as the 0% ... and I just add berries and a little honey if I think it needs it.

That being said, I think I'd like to try out the protien powder mixed in.
