Do you have a favorite brand of fat free yogurt? I’ve been buying Horizon’s Organic Fat Free yogurt at Costco. My family is a big fan of their low fat blended yogurts. It’s the closest thing to full fat European-style yogurt that we’ve found here in the States.
I could do a Five Things/Way post just about plain fat free yogurt because it’s so versatile. You can use it as a substitute for sour cream. You can make a smoothie out of it. Combine it with fruit and freeze as a homemade frozen yogurt. Use it to make Greek Feta Chicken. I like it with Kashi puff cereal and fruit for breakfast, too.
Here are a couple of ways I’ve been enjoying it on the Extreme Fat Smash Diet:
Breakfast Yogurt with Apple
I made this recipes up myself one morning since I was given a breakfast choice of a bowl of yogurt and a fruit.
- 1 cup no fat plain yogurt
- 1 small apple shredded
- 1 packet Equal or other sugar substitute
Combine ingredients and serve.
You could also add a dash of cinnamon. I like the apples uncooked since they’re crunchy and an interesting combination with the creamy texture of the yogurt. But you could bake/steam the apples before adding them to the yogurt, too.
