I don't see why not if you like yoghourt. I use it for all sorts of things, both sweet and savoury.
One of my tricks is to mix fat-free yoghourt with mayo to make a lower calorie mayo type dressing when I'm trying to lose weight.
I love layering Greek yoghourt, sliced strawberries (or any soft fruit) and crumbled ginger nut cookies in a glass for a quick dessert. Looks pretty and tastes divine.
Personally I don't like store bought sweetened, flavoured yoghourt but if you like it you could use it in the way you describe.
