Plain yogurt = *gag*... Help!



Recommended Posts

I have to get some plain yogurt today. Either kind (Greek or regular) will definitely make me gag, and mixing in baby food fruits or applesauce doesn't help. Has anyone ever mixed in flavored Protein powder? I'm nervous it will be some gross consistency? I don't want to test it out and pitentially waste it all.

How do you spice up your yogurts? NUT said extracts are ok as well. Anyone use those?

I like plain greek yogurt with one Splenda packet mixed in. I would say it is definitely an acquired taste. Do you have to have plain? There are lots of flavors of light greek yogurts available.

My way is probably not the best way but it worked really well for me. I put in some sugar free jello!!

It was the only way I could eat it without putting fruit in it.

It is weird the way different clinics require differnt things. I was allowed a light blended yogurt. They were flavored, sugar free and NO fruit pieces in them. I used Yoplaits thick and creamy light.

My fav is to mix flavored grrek yogurt with oatmeal. Reminds me of cake frosting. One needs to mix it in the night before eat so that it can absorb the moisture.

You could mix in unsweetened cocoa powder. Or they have these packets at the store in the baking isle they use to flavor frosting (Duncan Haines brand I believe) which you can add to the yogurt, there is very little sugar in the Packets because they are supposed to be added to frosting which has a lot of sugar. Good luck :)

I have mixed plain greek nonfat yogurt with just about everything. SF hot chocolate, Protein powders, SF puddings. It'll be fine. Just add a little at a time so you don't overdo it.

Good ideas everyone!!!

My office has GB patients start two weeks prior to surgery eat like they will have to post-op for 3-4 months, to get us ready. That's why the no sugars low fat :)

I have never been a fan of yogurt period. And it sucks now cause the greek yogurt has so much Protein but no matter what brand I buy it's a no go. My husband and daughter LOVE yogurt, I just have never been a fan.

In fact just the other day I tried another brand, and was like nope. I figure I can eat only such little amounts that I am going to eat food I enjoy. I am almost 11 weeks out and I think I have done pretty good so far without the yogurt. Grant it it would be nice because of the smooth consistency and high Protein, but I just can't.

Good Luck with your yogurt, I hope you find something that works, there are a lot of great suggestions on this thread already!! :)

I bought some sugar free Torani syrups because I've seen it suggested a lot, I haven't tried it in yogurt yet but they are good in plain Protein powder. But in the past I have flavored the yogurt with extracts as well and it is good, you can find a lot of flavors usually on the baking aisle, orange, lemon, mint, vanilla, coffee. I hit them up when they are on bogo haha.

I've added SF pudding mix to my plain yogurt and it's pretty good. Just a little goes along way.

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.
