If you think you're eating healthy by snacking on yogurt, you might be in for a surprise. Most yogurt, including the "fruit on the bottom" variety, is sweetened with sugar or high fructose corn syrup. This spikes your blood sugar and adds unnecessary calories. And certain "sugar-free" varieties aren't much better. They can contain aspartame or sucralose, which are both unhealthy artificial sweeteners.
So, how can you enjoy yogurt without the unwelcome additions? Here's what I do: I buy large containers of plain, unsweetened, organic yogurt and several bags of frozen, organic cherries, blueberries, or raspberries or whatever type of fruit flavored yogurt you like. Then at home let one 8 oz bag of fruit thaw. Mix the yogurt and fruit in a bowl and cover it with a lid. Voila! Snacks for a week.
If you like yogurt, this is one of the best ways to eat it. You'll have a healthy snack that is high in protein, calcium, and beneficial bacteria, low in calories, and rich in antioxidants.
