Sweeten and flavor your own yogurt…for more nutrition and frugality!

                        Sprinkle it on top       or            mix it in! 🙂

Here’s a little tip for today!

Buy or Make Plain Yogurt (stay tuned for a recipe soon about how to make your own) and sprinkle it with fruit. Mix it in or just eat it as is. You can also add a little honey and or stevia.

*For those who are dairy-free, try this with soy or coconut milk yogurt.

Other combinations I have mixed with my yogurt are:

  • vanilla extract and stevia…
  • applesauce
  • cranberry sauce (homemade)
  • fresh/frozen berries of any kind
  • frozen fruit concentrates
  • juice

 

These ideas will save you money because you can buy plain yogurt in bulk and not spend money on all that sugar and get more yogurt for your money! Also, this is much more nutritious to use fruit! plus no sugar (and even if you use honey, you need just a tiny bit and will save yourself calories and be a lot healthier!)

 

And it is customizable every day! Never have the same yogurt again if you so desire! Also, no fighting between kiddos who gets the blueberry yogurt…you can make everyone’s the same or customize it for different tastes!

Any other ideas? What do you put on your yogurt? 🙂
