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 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.
