Smile Ways To Liven Up Natural Yogurt

Hey guys,

We love flavoured yoghurt, but there is so much sugar in it that we thought of maybe having natural yoghurt instead but need some ideas of what to put in it to make it a bit sweeter, but not as sweet as the flavoured ones, or maybe some crunchy textures?

I have heard of honey being stirred through and jam...

Any ideas would be great, thanks guys!

In Turkey, we had really wonderful yogurt with dried fruit, sliced almonds and honey in it. So good.

i like to add a sweet granola to yoghurt for both texture and taste.

Tzatziki! Of course you need a dish to accompany. I usually like a little moussaka to go with my tzatziki.

We love tzatziki as a dip with pita chips and fresh veggies, as well as with all kinds of Greek dishes.

Kylie have you tried sweetening with a non-sugar sweetener like splenda?

I like berries for sweetening too.

Yogourt Paradiso: take some canned fruit, top with some yogourt, then sprinkle granola. Of course, you could use fresh fruit or reconstituted dried fruit. Homemade yogourt is particularly good with this.

Higher butterfat yogourts tend to be less sour.

When I regularly made yogourt, I found that after several generations, my yogourt was much less sour.

Yogourt makes an interesting substitute for cream in pasta carbonara.

Thank you so much everyone, some lovely ideas there

Frank, that is a good idea, maybe a sweetener rather than sugar and Tom I like the sound of the granola, I have seen Jamie make that

I may make our own granola, that would be nice

Cheers everyone

I actually meant homemade granola. It's easy and you get it just the way you want it. The only tricky part is making sure to keep an eye on it in the oven so it doesn't get burnt.

There are so many different variety of granola that I have seen online, it will be hard to choose just one

We have never actually had it before

Yes, we will be sure to keep checking it whilst in the oven, burnt would be no good at all
