Sansie - I'm going to try it with the same amount of brownie mix. It's just 1 or 2 more calories than the Funfetti mix!
Tip: I portioned the entire box into the appropriate amounts and put each serving into its own baggie. That way I won't do a "whoops, I 'accidentally' dumped too mix mix into my yogurt; oh well!" Sometimes I have to be awfully clever in order to outsmart myself!
Oh wow. I've never considered mixing cake mix and greek yogurt. I like to add all sorts for stuff sweets to my yogurt to have a dessert. I have a lot of good looking cake mixes that I don't want to whip into a whole cake. I wonder if other flavors will taste good?
Disclaimer - Yes yes, I am perfectly aware that this isn't exactly healthy. If you're into super healthy/sugar free, then don't read this. However, if you're on the verge of a PMS sweets binge (ahem...those are the circumstances under which I came up with this), then read on.
The first time I was on SP, I lost 42 lbs by totally cutting out sweets. It was all fine and good until 3 months into maintaining my goal weight, and then my sugar ban lost all semblance of order and I went nuts for anything sweet. Oops. 15 lbs later, my lesson has been learned. Small, semi-infrequent sweet treats it is!
1/4 c dry Funfetti cake mix 1 c plain fat free Greek yogurt (I like Fage, as it has less tang than Chobani) 1/2 - 1 tsp vanilla extract, to taste
Mix everything together well, and you end up with Funfetti batter-flavored Greek yogurt. Here's the nutritional breakdown. It actually has less sugar (15g) than a 6-oz single serve cup of flavored Greek yogurt (19g), even though it's more yogurt than comes in the 6-oz single serve cup. You could use vanilla flavored Greek yogurt instead of adding vanilla extract, but it will increase the total amount of sugar you're eating.
