Yogurt – Flavour ideas for plain yogurt

Yogurt is a very healthy food to include in our regular diet.   It is an excellent source ofprotein, calcium and other nutrients.   Most brands are fortified with Vitamin D and contain probiotics ; friendly bacteria which benefit the digestive tract.  

 

I recommend buying unsweetened yogurt that is 2% MF (Milk Fat) or lower, either as regular yogurt or greek yogurt.   Greek yogurt has more protein and has a richer creamier taste as it is more concentrated.   Not everyone enjoys plain yogurt and need something adding in to balance the tangy taste.   Here are some ideas to add flavours while keeping the amount of sugar in balance.

 

Fresh Fruit

Fruit Sauce or Compote – (sugar content will vary by product. PC Organics unsweetened apple sauce has 6 grams per 1/4 cup)

Jam of fruit spread – (sugar content varies by product, check thelabel.   Crofters Premium Fruit Spread has less than 3 grams of sugar per teaspoon)

Maple syrup (4 grams of sugar per teaspoon)

Honey (5 grams of sugar per teaspoon)

Cinnamon

Vanilla

Granola

Seeds

Nuts
