Best Yogurt Toppings - How to Add Flavor

By Sarah S – Jenny Craig

Plain yogurt is a good source of protein and calcium, but you may get tired of eating yogurt regularly without any flavor. Whether you’re in the mood for something sweet or savory, here are four ways to spice up your serving of plain yogurt. Jenny Craig members: remember, one serving of plain yogurt is 6 oz or ⅔ of a cup and counts as 1 Milk Choice. When selecting your yogurt, look for fat-free, low-fat or light and grab one that contains approximately 100 calories, 12 grams of carbohydrate, 8 or more grams of protein and less than 3 grams of fat per serving.


1. Fruit
Whether you like them fresh or frozen, a mix of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries can sweeten up a cup of plain yogurt. Berries are a good source of antioxidants and fiber so you will be getting a boost of other nutrients with this snack. Or, mash up your favorite fruit to mix with plain yogurt instead. Use a mortar and pestle to mash up bananas, peaches, kiwi, or pineapple for a refreshing twist. Play with different fruit combinations to really make it your own! Enjoy this blend first thing in the morning or after a workout to satisfy your sweet tooth and keep hunger at bay.


2. Special Spices
Spices add an interesting pop of flavor to your yogurt. Try cinnamon, ginger and clove for a spicy treat. Or, mix cinnamon and apple slices into your yogurt for a creamy, apple-pie inspired dessert. A dash of pumpkin pie spice will transport you to your favorite fall holiday in a snap!


3. Cucumbers & Dill
Craving something savory? Mix diced cucumbers and dill into yogurt and enjoy it like a dip with carrot sticks, celery, and other raw vegetables. Dill has a very strong flavor and adding cucumber to the mix can add texture to your healthy dip.
