How to Naturally Sweeten Yogurt & 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…

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!How to Naturally Sweeten Yougurt & Greek Yogurt
