I am not post-op yet, but I am preparing :) I got a Dannon Light & FIT yogurt today to see what it was like. I am used to full-fat, regular sugar yogurts, which I enjoy. THIS, however, was WAY too sweet (I assume the artificial sweetener makes it that way.) Has anyone put some type of flavoring (SF syrups in small amounts or something similar) into plain yogurt, and is it palatable for someone who *doesn't* generally like plain yogurt? I dunno if I will be able to choke down the pre-made SF yogurts :( Especially when I see most folks think things are too sweet post-op. I think it is too sweet NOW.

Months before surgery then one month after surgery, I found Walmart's Great Value nonfat yogurts to be very satisfying. I have at least one per day. They have a little fruit stirred in and do have a little sugar. I'm a picky eater. I tried plain yogurt but would rather not eat than have plain or greek yogurt.

LOL I'm hugely picky as well. I'm fine with the nonfat yogurts, but this sugar-free stuff is 🤢 I just am not sure I should be eating the kind with actual sugar. I'll talk to the dietician.

A lot of foods are just too sweet for me since surgery. (A bonus.) I eat Danone YoPro yoghurt - don’t know if it’s available in the US. A 160g tub of passion fruit yogurt has 15g Protein, 94 cal, 0.5g fat & 5.8g sugar. I don’t find it overly sweet. It has a slightly denser texture - not silky smooth.Their drinking yoghurt has 30g protein in a 350ml bottle & similar ration s if fat, sugar, calories. My dietician initially suggested Chobani but that was really too sweet.

You could always purée fruits you enjoy & add them to plain yogurt. You’ll get the sweetness from the fruit & not from the sugar/sweetners in syrups.

I gurgle terribly when I have yogurt but it’s a good source of protein for me each day so I put up with the growls, whines, moans & gurgles. 😁

Good luck with your surgery.

I often used sugar free Torani syrups or a little sugar free Water Enhancer powder (like crystal light or true lemon) into plain fat free greek yogurt. It was amazing to create so many fun flavors and fine tune them to my tastes.

I love yogurt and have tried close to every brand out there. My favorite is Two Good yogurt. They are only 80 calories per cup, 2 grams of sugar, and 12 grams of Protein so they are very filling. They are not as sweet as Chobani and not as bitter as plain non-fat Greek yogurt. Its a nice in-between. I highly recommend you check it out.

Sometimes I’ll mix in-

Peanut Butter powder
vanilla Protein Powder
matcha powder
frozen fruit
Fiber one cereal
couple tbsp granola
sunflower seeds
a pinch of Monkfruit sweetener

It really all depends on how I’m feeling that day.

I have seen it in Walmart and wondered about it. From what I remember, it was kinda pricey for yogurt, but since there's no way I'd be able to eat the entire container in one sitting post-op, it may be worth it. I will buy one as a sample next time I go to the store. Thanks!

I like Oikos Triple Zero yogurt. I usually buy vanilla, but they make plain, too. Post-op, it is really hard to get enough Protein, so I mix Protein Powder into my yogurt. I like the vanilla yogurt with chocolate protein powder and powdered Peanut Butter. That may be too sweet for your taste (since there is also sweetener in protein powder), but you could try it with the plain yogurt.

I like Siggis brand. High Protein and low carb. Not full of fake sweeteners. I like vanilla and cinnamon the best

I like the Oikos triple zero too! Coconut, vanilla or Key Lime. I find them to be less sweet than the light n fit, which I do not care for. Also better texture.
