Now, if you have been shopping around in the grocery store looking for low fat, sugar free or low sugar yogurt you may have been disappointed in the selection. Here's a better way to get your yogurt diet fix and enjoy a sweet treat.
Purchase plain fat free yogurt, such as the Daisy brand, and try these sugar free suggestions to add to make your yogurt sweet
and every bit as good as the ones with sugar in them.
Add to one serving of plain fat free yogurt:
Crystal Light On the Go Sugar free drink mixes
1/2 packet of sugar free Crystal light on the go drink mix- These little packets pack a lot of flavor, have no fat,sugar/carbs and only 5 calories per packet. You're only using 1/2 a packet so 2.5 calories are
all that you are adding to this recipe. Not to mention it has 100 % of your daily requirement of vitamin C. The flavors available are: Classic Orange, Raspberry ice, and Raspberry Lemonade to name a few.
Hershey's Sugar Free Chocolate or Strawberry flavored Syrup
Got a chocolate craving? Try Hershey's Sugar-Free Syrup, add this to your plain fat free yogurt and you will only be adding 5 carbs per serving to your yogurt and a mere 15 calories extra. Did I mention this product
is fat free as well? Oh, and did I mention it also comes in Strawberry flavor?
Maxwell House International Coffee Decaf Sugar Free French Vanilla Café
Adding a little of this to your plain fat free yogurt will give it a wonderful flavor and if you use half the recommended dosage you only add 25 calories to the yogurt.
Nuts for nuts?
Give these and other ideas a try including
things like a table spoon or two of almond slivers, crushed walnuts etc. and you will wonder why you haven't thought of this sooner.
