You got problems. We've got strategies!
Here are a few tips to get your fruit/yogurt love thang happening without all the unnecessary sugar.
- Sugar-free preserves: I do this a lot. I nuke the preserves for about 10 seconds to soften them, then stir into my yogurt. NUMMY!
- Frozen fruit: this works best for you 9-5 lunch packers. Put some yogurt (we like the Greek variety) in a container and toss some berries in there along with a packet or two of your favorite sweetener (trust us, you don't need much!). Carry it to work, put in the fridge. This works especially well as an afternoon snack. The yogurt and the fruit get together and do the magical mambo (yeah...ok...I'm in the gutter with you...it happens...) and your yogurt becomes INTENSELY flavorful. And it has the added benefit of having pretty swirly flavors.
- For those of you who aren't DIY'ers, we like several brands of no-sugar added varieties: Publix makes a no-sugar added fruity-on-the bottom. And if you just plain like flavored yogurt, we keep hearing about this Carbmaster stuff and are endeavoring to get to a state where we can buy it!
