Does anyone like yogurt?

Do you like if plain, flavored, fruit on the bottom or mixed in?
What's your favorite Brand?
Here in New England, I like Columbo with fruit on the bottom. Sometimes Danon with mixed fruit.

My wife prefers Stonyfield plain and mixes in dried natural cerials with it for breakfast. My wife loves it!

I do not like the taste of plain yogurt unless I can mix in some fresh fruit and nut meats. (YUM!) :

Dip

In reply to: Does anyone like yogurt?

I like using it for making dip with Lipton's onion soup mix, usually
half that and half sour cream. Helps give the dip more "bite", a sharper
taste.

I love yogurt

In reply to: Does anyone like yogurt?

any brand will doHappy What is real good is use plain yogurt on baked potatoes instead of sour cream, Yummy! Safeway makes one flavor that I love, it tastes just like like a fresh orange

Sure

In reply to: Does anyone like yogurt?

Mostly Yoplait flavored varieties including their light flavors. I also like frozen yogurt as an alternative to ice cream.

Also.....

In reply to: Sure

Yogurt is an ingredient in some pudding I make.

1 Box Jello Brand Sugar Free Instant Pudding Mix
1 Cup Lowfat Yogurt
1 Cup Lowfat or Skim Milk
1 Scoop Whey Protein (Vanilla or Chocolate to go with pudding flavor)

The pudding mix calls for 2 cups of milk but I substitute 1 cup of yogurt for one of the milks. This yields about 2 cups of high protein, lowfat, sugar free dessert. Most everyone that tries it asks for the recipe.

... such as cakes that substituted yogurt for ingredients. The all came out exceptionally moist compared to the standard recipe. Happy

Sometimes it's good on top of baked goods

In reply to: I have eaten several baked goods...

Stir on of those boxes of Lipton Onion Soup Mix, or another flavor, into a pint of yogurt and substitue it for cream cheese on a bagel. This also makes a good dip for veggie snacks. There's also some Ranch Dressing mixes you can use for this also.

A tip I saw on TV...

In reply to: Sometimes it's good on top of baked goods

... when making the cucumber gyro sauce, you take the plain low fat yogurt and spoon it into a fresh cheese cloth placed inside a strainer and over a collection cup or bowl. Give it an hour or so and excess liquid drains from the yogurt, giving you a thicker consistency for dips where you want to avoid a watery consistency. The resulting yogurt looks much more like smooth ricotta cheese than the original yogurt.

Good idea's C1ay, thanks.

I refuse to eat it

In reply to: Does anyone like yogurt?

and it's become a family thing to taunt me about it. The thought of deliberately eating something with thousands of live skinny dipping bacteria in it is just not appealing. Friends have told me that frozen yogurt is as good as ice cream. I say "Good, give me the ice cream if it's just as good as frozen yogurt."

As a side note, I have taken to liking Christmas stollen which has some kinship to fruit cake...and I love fruit cake despite the jokes about it. The kind I get comes from Germany. The best stollen is supposed to come from Dresden....a city we mercilessly bombed in WWII I believe. Perhaps this stollen is more dangerous to the body than what was produced in Dresden during that time. Happy

Most food has millions of tiny creatures in

In reply to: I refuse to eat it

not to mention your kitchen and and we won't even talk about what lives in your bed.

I remember eating yogurt to lose weight and hated it. I remember eating a Strawberry one for lunch and discovered it tasted good. Been eating ever since. Had the same reaction to V-8.

Have to check out which one I eat now because a lot of it have high-fructose corn syrup in it. Didn't realize it until recently and was going through my food looking for it and found it in some and not in others even of the same brand. Weird.

I like the fruit-on-the-bottom best and like mixed berry. One thing is that I like strawberries and bananas but don't like strawberry-banana.

Oh, yes!

In reply to: Does anyone like yogurt?

My favorite is plain ol' vanilla.

I buy the Kroger (a supermarket chain) low fat brand when it's on sale.

(But NEVER the fat free.)

I love frozen yogurt, as well. Again, vanilla.

And Kroger carries their own brand of that in low fat, too! Happy

A half gallon is cheaper than a half gallon of ice cream, and just as satisfying to me.

Years ago I bought a yogurt making kit. Threw it away unused when I moved over 35 years later. Happy

Angeline. I have a yougurt maker kit in my cellar.
R.I.P.
I would rather purchase it at a local supermarket.
Taste is about the same.

Back quite a few years ago I was the art director for an Ad Agency in Boston. We had the Columbo Yogurt account.
I suggested Tuti-Fruity as a new taste. Was successful for a while.
The hardest to make for them was chocolate.
I suggested putting in Hershey's Morsels.
Works with me. I still wonder why Columbo never made it?

Just remember where you got the recipe from: CNET SE Forum. It does taste good! Try it, you will like it!

I wonder what sardines and peanut butter would taste like with strawberrys and plain yogurt? :

Honestly? No... but I eat it anyway.

In reply to: Does anyone like yogurt?

I actually enjoy it as an ingredient in many foods... I will replace sour cream with plain low fat yogurt and actually love the yogurt/cucumber/mint sauce that is used on Gyros.

It's odd, I love cheese (real cheese) and have eaten some of the runniest, smelliest stuff there is... but to me, yogurt is just spoiled milk without the chunks.

Same thing with cottage cheese though... a good dollop on top of 5 alarm chili is awesome... but I can't stand to eat it alone.

Gyros

In reply to: Honestly? No... but I eat it anyway.

Grim, Yogurt is essential in a real Greek Gyro sandwich made with a lamb kabob.
Sounds good. You are lucky in order to have a restaurant serve it in your area.
Hard to find around where I live in the Boston area.
I guess I will have to make one for myself and try fresh cucumber/mint on it.

I really do not care much for the stuff, but

In reply to: Does anyone like yogurt?

when it was suggested I eat 1 or 2 a day, that Yoplait flavored varieties wasn't too bad. I'll have to try your pudding one Clay. Sounds good.

Mixed fruit or raspberry. Brand doesn't matter.
