I bought some Greek yogurt the other day and tried one out. Yuck. Could barely stomach without gaging. I even cut up my strawberries and put it in it to help...didn't help much. I wanted to try it for a different type of dairy. Does any one have a suggestion of how to make it a little more tasty? Maybe there is someone out there who like me didn't like yogurt but found a way to eat it. Any suggestions would be helpful...

Your question was: How to make Nutrisystem Greek Yogurt taste better?.

I'm a huge fan of adding the SF/FF pudding mix to the greek yogurt (I like Fage brand). I think 1/4 of the package is 20-25 calories (depending on the flavor), so I try to use 1/4 pkg or less with a serving of the greek yogurt , as a free food. My favorite flavors to add are lemon, cheesecake, chocolate, vanilla and pistachio..

Alternatively, you could add a bit of splenda or SF syrups like Torani or DaVinci with your fruit to sweeten it up a bit..

Greek yogurt is also great as a Sour Cream swap (Better than FF sour cream, IMO, and counts toward a protein serving for the day)...

Those are some great ideas. I am not very creative when it comes to adding things to food. I like most things plain (if I am cooking for my self that is). I figured I could try a different brand like Gianavel suggested but seems to be so many. Thank you all three for your help...

My DH is in the same boat, he is trying to like Greek yogurt but is still experimenting with different ways to eat it. We found he likes it a little better if he adds a packet or two or Splenda along with a little fat free/sugar free strawberry-banana jello mix or one of the ff/sf pudding mixes. He really likes the caramel Greek yogurt (I think Oikos) but it is a little higher in calories so he doesn't buy that one often.

Also, maybe you can try different brands, or maybe try just regular instead of Greek? I understand Greek is a little more tart than regular yogurt...

I love it with the pudding mix added. But if I didn't, I just wouldn't eat it. It's good for you, but there are other healthy foods that I don't like and won't eat. I'd say try a couple of things, but if you don't like it, don't worry about it. There are plenty of other protein and dairy foods out there...

Definitely try a diferent brand..

I love my Greek Yogurt with strawberries, blueberries or banana..

My favorite brand is Chobani. The Fage is ok, and I didn't care for the Oikos..

My husband can't stand the smell of the plain Greek yogurt but he does like the Chobani non-fat honey flavored yougrt.

Just keep trying until you find something you are happy with...

If you have a Krogers hear you (Frys in my area), try their brand - Carb Master. It's 12 protein (and around 3 or 4 carbs!!) and very good! I especially like the Cherry and Raspberry...

Comment #6

I am not a huge fan of regular yogurt, but have come to LOVE the greek kind. My favorite is actually the Oikos- they sell it in a 4 pack of 4 oz containers. 100 cals and usually a good 9+ grams protein. I like the honey kind, caramel and chocolate. I usually add 1 packet of splenda and it's sweet, yummy and a nice treat.

Now- I agree w/Robin, if you can't find one you like, don't force yourself into it. You can always opt for something else for the protein/dairy.

Hope that helps!.

Try mixing in splenda and cinnamon. I eat it that way for breakfast with berries almost every day. Don't give up before you experiment a little...

I had the same reaction (and question ) when I tried greek yogurt for the first time as well. I tried plain yogurt, and almost gagged on it!! Then I started playing around with different recipes (the SF FF pistachio pudding is a favorite!) and also tried different brands. Here are a few things I do:.

1. With the plain yogurt, I mix in my granola for breakfast, along with 1 Tbsp of SF strawberry jam (free food) OR I put my fruit in with a little splenda to cut the tartness..

2. I really like the Oikos cups with blueberry, chocolate, honey, or caremel on the bottom. I make sure and mix it all up really well, and it is sweet enought that way. I still usually mix the blueberry with granola and blueberries for breakfast. The chocolate is good with strawberries mixed in for snack, and the caremel is GREAT with cut up apples mix it for snack as well.

3. I use it instead of FF sour cream with some of the supper entrees, like the chili, or other things that are spicy. It makes it nice and creamy...

Comment #9

I had the same problem but now I mix in 2 tsp of sf, ff cheesecake pudding mix AND 1 or 2 Splenda - something I picked up here from the boards and I love it! Its like having another desert...

Comment #10

This is what I do plus I add blueberries as my fruit. It is awesome. I am not normally a big yogurt eater but I have this once a day. Sometimes for a change I use 2 tsp SF banana cream pudding mix, 2 tablespoons Free cool whip(free food) and half a sliced banana as my fruit. Tastes just like banana pudding...

Comment #11

Oooh, that's a great idea! I love the chocolate (took a little getting used to, but I told myself it was an expensive chocolate dessert from some fancy restaurant you know, the kind of thing that doesn't taste quite sweet, but you know is supposed to be delicious? lol), but the idea of the caramel didn't really appeal to me. I'll have to try this, I've always loved caramel apples..

Comment #12

Just wanted to say thanks to all who gave suggestions I have been struggling with the Greek yogurt and think the add ins sound great - only thought of adding fruit before ... I'm heading to the store for ff pudding.....

Comment #13

I use a little tiny scoop of stevia per 1 cup of yogurt, gives it a nice sweet taste...

Comment #14

This is what I just ate! I still had my snack/dessert to get in so I crushed up the little Walnut Cookies, layered most in the bottom of a bowl, then the yogurt pudding mix, 1/2 sliced banana, then topped it with FF Cool Whip with the rest of the cookie crumbs on top. Oh my! Huge bowl and wonderful!..

Comment #15

Mix in sugar free jam. Sugar free marmalade is the best...

Comment #16

Oikos blueberry is my favorite - I add more blueberries and it's a good treat. But I've always like yogurt. You might try adding a little honey and fruit...

Comment #17

Hi Aicila,.

I absolutely LOVE the caramel yogurt! I tried adding 2 tsps of the sf cheesecake pudding mix to the bluberry,I liked how it thickened it but the taste was just strange and not cheesecake,did I add too much?..

Comment #18

Like the idae of subing it for sour cream..

Comment #19

I had the same reaction to Greek yogurt and then found Voskos. The Strawberry and the blueberry are delicious! I find them in Fresh and Easy (do you have Fresh and Easy?) They are also pretty cheap as it goes, around $1. The other thing that you could do is add a little sf pudding mix, maybe a teaspoon full to a plain Greek yogurt, then mash up some raspberries and mix them in...
