I do not know what breakfast would be for me if there was no yogurt.
The 'best food ever' well, I don't know about that, but I sure do love it!!
YOPLAIT whips (oooh...yummmm), Orange Creme, Thick French Vanilla, Pina Colada, Banana Creme Pie, Boysenberry, Strawberry....they are all SO wonderful!

This morning I had a Chocolate Mint Whips. So yum, but low on cals.

LOL about pudding being a choice in the poll!

Yogurt is one of those health foods gone wrong. All the sugar and other junk that goes into it ... it's not really much of a health food. I guess whatever it takes to get people to eat it ... and the sugary stuff does make a good dessert on occasion ... but I prefer nonfat, plain yogurt either on its own or with fresh fruit.

cspinet.org has some interesting info about yogurt.

I don't like the sweetened fruit-flavored yogurts at all, but I eat plain low-fat yogurt regularly. I use it mostly when sour cream would be called for -- such as on potatoes or black bean tacos, or as the basis for onion dip. You almost can't tell the difference, and it's got a lot less fat and a lot more nutritional value.

I drain the yogurt first to thicken it, that's lots cheaper than buying the already thick Greek yogurt.

I never buy sweetened or flavored yogurt.
Anything I eat it with is put there by me.

I like vanilla or banana yogurt and I put my daily dose of flaxseed in it. I do try and watch the sugar content though because some brands are very high.

Thats a good idea. I would like to try and eat the plain which is probably better for you and just add things to it for flavor.

I like real yogurt, without the sugar or corn syrup. And if I can find yogurt made with sheep and goat's milk, I am in heaven!

The American stuff is just awful, over sweetened corporate glop. Like someone else said, I add my own flavoring.

The real yogurt from Greece that I like is FAGE and is thicker since they drain the excess water out, concentrating the flavor and making it creamier without additives.

Basically, I have a dish of it every day and I love it. It's my evening snack and here is how I have it:

I thaw out some frozen blueberries and put some DanActive in the bowl. Then I top it off with low fat vanila yogurt. I mix it all together and put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes (kind of stiff but not frozen solid). I sit down at the TV and eat away. Sometimes I put some granola on top.

Its hard for me to find any of the unsweetened yogurt here. Its all that commercial sweetened junk or Artificially sweetened. Its amazing how the fat people of TN buy the crap out of it and other diet stuff, and thinking having it for a snack after eating a 1/2 lb. whopper and king fries will help them loose weight.

I am a huge believer in the goodness in Yoghurt and think that the greek style (which my local publix now sells in huge pots) is the best. It's more like a creme fraiche, or cream, less bitter than other plain yogs. I serve it to my children with fresh (or frozen if necessary) blueberries with a drizzle of natural honey over it.
They love it. Sprinkle on some grapenuts for crunch is what my husband does.
The other day I served it with some italian cookie things (can't remember the name of them, they look like very thin and crispy waffles) and raspberries and honey, dropped a couple of chocolate chips on it, and they thought it was a great dessert. The friend who joined them for lunch though it was an icecream sundae! Didn't realize he was eating yoghurt.
