Combine some plain yogurt with the flavoured kind. I hate artificial sweeteners, so I usually buy the kind that has sugar. But it is too sweet. I find that if I cut it with plain yogurt such as activia, it actually tastes much better and it is less sugary. I divide the yog into two portions.
cutting the sugar in yogurt to make a healthier snack
Yogurt on fruits & Crackers instead of empty calorie fruit dips
So i stopped buying expensive fruit dips and cheeses for my crackers and fruits. I wait for great sales on healthy yogurts like Chobani (10 for 10 at Shoprite), Greek, or Oikos and I use them as my dips. Try Chobani on honey graham crackers when you so badly want that snack and its yummmy!! If you prefer plain yogurts for your fruits awesome coz this saves some extra calories. I know some Yogurts are cheaper but its at the expense of your waistline due to the amount of sugar and carbs.
