I would put some fruit and granola in it or use it in a recipe. If you don't like it though, don't eat it and just toss it. It's only one thing of yogurt.

Put in a little spiced pumpkin mix, but beware of the calories! You can put in plain pumpkin and spice it up yourself with a little splenda or truvia.

I also love lemon curd in my plain yogurt. Delish!

Try honey or vanilla. Or eat it with a healthy cereal like Kashi!

If you're planning to eat it straight from the container - kind of thing. Something sweet, like fruit.

But plain yoghurt have so many more uses. Season it up, with for example some horseradish / curry / garlic / herbs / mustard / etc. or a combination there-of. Then thin it out a little with water.
And there you have a nice salad dressing.

Mix it with a bit of grated sharp cheese, season with some salt and pepper.
And it's a dip for your raw vegetables of choice. An alternative to the hummus.

Nuke some cauliflower, add a dollop of plain yoghurt, mash.
And now it's a healthy vegetable side dish to go with pretty much anything...

There's more to yoghurt than eating it with a spoon as a breakfast or snack item. :)

I have just discovered nutella+greek yogurt and it changed my life (ok, fine, slight exaggeration) BUT it is delicious. Other stuff I have added includes honey, preserves, frozen fruit, maple syrup, and granola. All totally yummy.

Thaw some frozen fruit and stir it in. Very low-calorie.
Honey and low-fat granola also work.

I have the same problem!!! Someone suggest mixing it half yogurt, half apple sauce. I tried that and it is much more bearable now.

I love Greek Yogurt, but I have to sweeten it with a little Splenda and a very small drizzle of honey. I love to add granola on top too.

Someone gave me a container of plain yogurt, but I don't know what to do with it. I refuse to eat it straight out of the jar because I've done that before, and it was DISGUSTING.

What items can I add to it for a healthy flavor boost?
