Dasani Water Enhancer in greek yogurt
 
I really struggle getting all my water in while I'm work. I don't like to buy bottled water, but our water locally is just AWFUL tasting - so water enhancers like Mio are my saving grace. Yesterday I was at Publix and found a Dasani brand. I really didn't need another kind - but Dasani brand has a pineapple coconut flavor. I've been jonesing for my pina colada yogurt recently -but I'm out of pineapple Davinci until Netrition starts shipping glass again. So I grabbed this on the off chance that it might taste okay in my greek yogurt.

You guys!!! It was fantastic!!! Just a little squirt in a 1/2 cup of yogurt and it tasted just like pina colada yogurt. So yummy!!! I'd honestly never even thought about adding water enhancers to yogurt... but now I'm going to try my other Mio flavors for some variety (I'm down to just vanilla and caramel Davinci - winter needs to end pronto!!!)

I bought some chobani plain greek yogurt at homeland the other day!! It only had 7 carbs per serving and it was a pretty big container!! So I thought it would be good to try for breakfast!! It was horrible!! Until I took one more bit and realized it tasted more like sour cream!! Not even that good!! Is this the kind of yogurt you put your water inhancer into? If so I might give it a try tomorrow morning!! I have a cherry limemade generic one!! It's clover valley Ennergy liquid water enhancer!! What do you think? 0 cal, 0 carb, 0 sodium per serving.... Advice?

Yum. I have put the berry Mios in yogurt before.

Just be careful how forcefully you squirt it. It can bounce off the top of your yogurt onto your clothes, desk and computer. Ask me how I know. :p

LOL! That just happened to me! I was packing my lunch for tomorrow and preparing my little yogurt cup and I squirted and it splashed right back out.

Yeah... I'm not a big fan of the taste of plain yogurt. I can eat it... but if I'm going to enjoy it I have to flavor it with Davinci or apparently a water enhancer. There will still be that tang - but once it's blended with a bit of flavored 0 carb sweetener, it's more palatable to me.
