I have only begun eating yogurt within the last year.  For whatever reason I can't get enough of it.

Vanilla with fresh fruit or granola is now my idea of a perfect breakfast or snack.

Sadly, yogurt sometimes gives me a bit of heart burn due to the acidity. Also, granola is UBER caloric, so I'm looking for fancy ways to make the fancy snack fancier but sans fatty patty ruth 'n bratty granola.

Most of the yogurts on the market are also packed with added sugar.  I tried them for a while, but the 110 calories per small cup and the flavor weren't quite doing it for me, so I gave up on it.  And I'm not likely to enjoy anything less sweet in the less adulterated versions.

Archer: HOLY SHIT! Yogurt is amazing! Why have I never tried yogurt?
Lana:  How have you never tried yogurt?
Archer:  Mmm, I didn't know it was that good.
Malory: It's good because it's cocaine!
Archer: Oh my God, and little kids eat it!?

But in all seriouness Lettuce - I eat it just like it is. Nothing fancy - just the fat free options. I've found that I do like Greek style yogurt - over the past year or so up here its all the rage on commercials. Greek style is thicker and creamier than 'normal' yogurt. I will say that Greek yogurt with fruit on the bottom is lame - the yogurt is so thick that it makes it hard to actually stir it up and distribute the fruit because your spoon is totally mired in it. #FirstWorldProblems  Roll Eyes

I love Yogurt too.  I like tart flavored with fruit, Blue Berries or blackberries are my favorite.  I love granola with it too, and feel if you use low fat yogurt and granola for breakfast that is perfectly healthy.

Regarding heartburn ATB, I used to struggle with that too, but a few weeks ago tried the off brand Prilosec and couldn't be happier.  I've had no heartburn, eaten no tums and find it to work wonderfully.  I'm going to talk with my doctor to make sure it's okay to keep taking it.  It was like 7.99 at Walmart.

I eat yogurt every morning, but the pre-fruit added stuff with sugar usually. Fage is easily my favorite since I prefer Greek.

I tried mixing plain yogurt with my own fruit but found it to be too much of a hassle. Berries grow mold and get mushy in the refrigerator far too quickly, so I was having to stop at the store too often. My solution was to turn to smoothies. Plain Greek yogurt, frozen berry mixture, a banana, and a bit of orange juice to sweeten it up. Great beakfast.

I'll be curious to hear what your doctor says about Prilosec.   Mine told me it was ok to use short term, but take it too long and it runs the risk of damaging your kidneys.

I'll let you know for sure, hate to hear what yours told you as I love never having heart burn.  I first need to schedule a routine physical, which I'll do in the next week or so.

It's pretty easy to make yogurt using a commercially available one as a starter, using a dutch oven or even a crock pot. I love berries and almonds in mind.

I used to eat Chobani or Fage yogurt but recently tried Danon Greek yogurt that is only 80 cals per cup and find it very good.

For a good low cal version, I use plain yogurt but add banana and mandarin oranges from the can-- let a little of the light syrup they're soaking in seep into your bowl for a little more sweetness.
