Best tasting brand for nonfat vanilla yogurt
Not frozen yogurt, but rather the stuff one would typically eat for breakfast. Lately I've been addicted to having a yogurt parfait of fresh fruit and vanilla yogurt for breakfast, but I'm not quite satisfied with the yogurt I bought, any suggestion for a creamy and tasty brand of nonfat yogurt?
maybe not exactly what you are looking for but if you enjoy a particular brand of plain 0 fat yogurt & add a splash of pure vanilla extract you'll achieve the BEST version around. Most, even great nonfat brands, skimp on the quality of the vanilla.
I enjoy greek yogurt. I have small container on my desk right now. Before I left the house, I opened the yogurt added vanilla ext, fresh blueberries and some cut up pineapple. A tsp of wheat-germ, flaxseed for good measure and into my sack it went. Fresh & satisfying.
That's the way I do it too. Plain yogurt, dress it up and you can take it anywhere.
- a few drops of real vanilla
- honey and toasted almond slivers
- any fresh fruit
- any quality jam or preserve
- Persian yogurt seasoning
My favourite nonfat yogurts are made by Astro and Phoenicia (Lebanese by way of Montreal).
I had some Tillamook french vanilla this morning that had decent vanilla flavor and appeared to have actual vanilla bean seeds but was way too sweet for 1st thing in the morning for me (I usually buy Nancy's plain or honey, neither is very sweet). 34g sugar in a 1-cup serving? Sheesh.
I love the vanilla yogurt from Stonyfield Farms -- their lowfat is only 130 calories, as it's not super-sweet (which I prefer), and it's delicious. They also have non-fat vanilla.
I love the Voskos nonfat honey vanilla. I don't have one in front of me but I think it's 110 calories with 13 sugar grams. A lot less sugar than any other flavored yogurt I've been able to find(Cascade fresh is another brand with a lot less sugar than most other commercial brands and I bought that before finding this).
Alternatively like others here I just add a little honey and vanilla to plain yogurt -either greek or I don't ahve any of htat the Dannon Natural.
