How to Naturally Sweeten Yougurt & Greek Yogurt

It’s a secret ingredient…and I’m sharing it with you today. I’ve developed this out of a need.. a need to help individuals find the right yogurt. Don’t get me wrong,  yogurt is great source of protein, calcium and probiotics (good for your stomach).  That’s why I love yogurt, devour it daily,  and  recommend it as a fast, casual meal or snack. However,  unless you eat it plain,   finding the right yogurt  is often a daunting task;  many store bought yogurts have as much as 24 grams or about 6 teaspoons of sugar.  So try my secret ingredent, to enjoy the yogurt goodness with less sugar…
Macerated Macerating fruit  increases the flavor, much like marinating meat. The honey draws out the liquid from the fruit, sweetens it and leaves a delicious syrup. Simply add 1/2 cup of fruit to a mason jar and then add 1 teaspon of honey. Let sit for as little as 15 minutes, or do ahead and refrigerate overnight. Add this to 6 oz of plain yogurt or Greek yogurt with 1 teaspoons of honey, to reduced the  added sugar by over half of what’s in most store bought yogurts. Stay tuned for my next post, I’ll  show you how I make a perfect  post recovery snack with Greek yogurt and my macerated grapefruit!IMG_1249
