vanilla yogurt- cook for your life- anti-cancer recipes
Yogurt Marinade
Servings: 4
Prep time: 15

This vanilla yogurt recipe is for you if you find plain yogurt is too tart or too sour, and it’s a lot better than buying sugary vanilla yogurts at the market. Commercial flavored yogurts may say ‘natural’ on the label but they can have as much added sugar in them as ice cream, so if you’re watching your sugar intake, as many of us in the cancer community do, it’s easy to transform plain yogurt to match your tastes, and help you keep your sugars down. The serving size is 1/4 cup, but using a tablespoon of this to top fruits and compotes is a delicious no brainer. Try it.

Preparation

 

1. In a bowl beat together the yogurt with vanilla extract and agave nectar.  Taste and adjust sweetness.  Keep in the refrigerator.

Ingredients:


  • 16 ounces of Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar or sugar dissolved in water

Ann's Tips and Tricks

Flavored yogurts at the store pack a startling amount of sugar. By making it at home, you can adjust the sweetness to your liking. You’ll find you need a lot less sugar than what ends up in the store-bought kind.
