We used to buy Yoplait with fruit. Not anymore. I'd frozen a bunch of whole peaches, dug them out and made a sauce of them. Stirred some of the sauce into Greek yogurt, and it was outstanding! Ran out of peach sauce, so I stirred some Smuckers plain strawberry preserves into more Greek yogurt, and it was also fantastic! No more store-bought pre-fruited yogurt for us, this is just too good.

Sometimes simpler is better!

That sounds like a good idea. I've always hated yogurt. But I've recently started trying to eat it since I'm trying to lose weight definitely will try doing this instead of paying extra for the yoplait yogurt.

Thanks, Jessica. It tastes like a decadent dessert! Just make sure you use Greek yogurt, we had Oikos.

I like using sweetened fruit, too. I can control the sugar content that way.

Oh yeah .. it's much better than already put in that you get in the store. And doubly so when fruits are fresh in season .. yummy stuff !

I made the peach sauce with agave nectar. I agree, the sweetened fruit tastes so good when mixed in! I like that if I don't have any fresh fruit, jam works great, and you don't need a whole lot of it. And I can't wait for berry season!

Oh no! Hope they don't file an assault report! I can just see the headlines: Crazy Montana Nurse Pelts Elderly Patients with Seasonal Fruit. News at 10.
