Lovely Eats: Greek Yogurt with Honey

Ever since I started exploring vegan foods, I started exploring the different types of yogurts.  Although the point was to experiment with non-dairy yogurts like coconut or soy yogurts, in the process I've realized that those ones taste like shit, and Greek yogurt is the bomb!  Non-fat greek yogurt, plain, with honey, to be specific.  Although some greek yogurt brands come with honey on the side, Yoplait is much cheaper, but their honey flavored yogurt seems to have the honey mixed in, which is a lot less fun than getting gobs of honey you can actually almost chew on.  So I just buy the plain Yoplait and add my own.  It's yummy, smooth, creamy, healthy (aside from the fact that honey is not used in moderation for this recipe, it's probably still better than the artificial sweeteners they use in other fat-free yogurts), and has tons of protein and calcium.  I've honestly never liked honey before, but now it seems I can't get enough of the stuff.  

Honey is my new obsession!


  1. I love using honey as a sweetener.... And Dipping apple slices in it is so much healthier than caramel or nutella.

  2. i did not know yoplait had greek yogurt! i actually don't love greek yogurt.. i think because it's SO thick and almost grainy.

    i've never tried it with honey though! i'll be sure to pick some up next time i'm at the store.

  3. I love Greek yogurt with honey!! Fage makes the best Greek yogurt. You can buy huge tubs of it at Costco.

  4. Hmm...interesting. I've never seen Yoplait's Greek yogurt either. I'm always looking for healthy snacks to take to work- this is definitely going on my must try =)
