How do you flavor plain greek yogurt? I just put mixed berries (blue, black, straw and rasp) in it with 3 packets of sugar (in a two-cup container, so 6 grams of sugar per serving/cup). But I really don’t like chunks in my yogurt. And my blender is broken.

Why not try flavored greek yogurt?

I just get the flavored kind. I find that even if I try to flavor the plain, I still get that “sour cream” taste..blech!

I love adding a teaspoon of honey and a sprinkle of cinnamon and giving it a good mix.
Another is mash up a banana, sprinkle either with brown sugar, or honey and eat straight away. One more way is to sprinkle brown sugar onto the yoghurt and leave it over night – the sugar “melts” and becomes a tasty caramel.

I put onion soup mix in it and it makes an awesome dip…for chips, bread, veggies. Yum! So easy and delicious!

A dollop of pretty much any jam and mix. My Future Mother-In-Law makes a rasberry jam that is unbelievably good, so I usually use that.

My favourite is slice strawberries and bananas, a generous sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of honey.

When I want sweet/dessert – honey
When I want savory – a spice mixture called zaatar (sumac, sesame seeds, thyme, and more — sold at middle eastern grocery stores). It’s also tart but it somehow balances the strong yogurt taste. This is my everyday breakfast.

I absolutely use it instead of sour cream all the time! My favorite flavor is TACO UNDERNEATH! Anyway, the flavored ones have wayyy too much sugar in them, plus it’s cheaper to buy the big container of plain, so that’s what I’m trying. If I use honey, will it taste like honey or just taste sweet? I don’t like the flavor of honey.

I use honey, I do not think it has a honey flavor to it, but i also use honey from a farm not processed stuff, so much better. I also add jam insteadnon days I want it sweeter.

@pharmy: I agree! I’ve never tried jam though, when I have some plain around (I use it in place of sour cream) it might be worth a try when I want something that tastes more like ‘yogurt’ (or how I associate it as a fruit flavoured food!).

@redheadem: If you don’t like honey, I would suggest using just half a teaspoon, and choosing a clear, runny honey. After writing here, I had the biggest urge for yoghurt so had with half a teaspoon of honey and Tahini for experimental purposes – I loved it!

I use agave nectar and fruit…strawberries are my favorite, but I also use those frozen tri-berries.
