What do you mix in Greek yogurt???

I'm curious what people mix in with their Greek Yogurt? Yesterday my 5 yr old saw it in the fridge and wanted some. I knew he wouldn't like it, so I mixed in some instant pudding mix, and slenda, hopefully to taste like chocolate to him. He said it was bad and couldn't eat it. I tried it and it had a really strong tangy taste. I bought it for mixing into things I bake. I'd love to eat yogurt again though. Help me with ideas please!

I will put some Waldens Farm sugar free caramel dip and cinnamon in mine - sometimes add a tbsp of pumpkin to it as well.

I do like plain yogurt, but sometimes I mix in about 6 plain unsweetened raspberries that were frozen; I thaw them, mash them up, and mix the yogurt in with the berries and their juice, and stir it up well.

My favorite is a tablespoon of peanutbutter and two drops of liquid splenda.

I add about 6 drops of Nu Naturals Liquid Stevia to 1/2 cup and then crush blackberries and add. I don't like the taste of splenda in yogurt. The longer you let the fruit sit in it it gets better.

why do you want to eat it if you don't like it? there are so many nutritious foods you probably like better...

I like it plain. Sometimes I mix in cocoa or strawberries or blueberries.
It is only recently that I can eat it plain.

I like some chopped walnuts and a drizzle of SF honey on top of my Greek yogurt. Sometimes if I'm feeling really decadent I add a sprinkle of Vietnamese cinnamon too.

Hmm, sometimes unfrozen strawberries or blueberries and Splenda, lately it's been some DaVinci Lemon and once in awhile with that some Vanilla. DV Lemon has been the favorite for awhile.

Thanks for all the great ideas! I will try them.

And Raven, it's because of the benefits from eating it. And, I like yogurt, but all the ones I've found are high in sugar.

for kids-mix it with applesauce or no sugar added fruit preserves. Mine love it.

I eat it plain or with berries. I sometimes add LC jam or a sprinkle of jello powder. I often use greek yogurt to make ranch dressing or put it plain on fajitas like sour cream.

These are great ideas too. Thanks!
Cindy, I originally bought it, to try as a dip. Found them at the 98 cent store. Couldn't pass that deal up!

Just curious, but which one do you buy? I don't think they all taste the same.
