Hello,
I bought a big tub of organic plain yogurt and was looking for ways to add some variety and tastiness to it.
Any ideas would be appreciated!

My fav is granola, sliced fruit and plain yoghurt. We even found some bc peaches last time we did groceries--lucky you to be in BC with all the fresh fruit!!

honey, vanilla and cinnamon or mashed berries

I cut out dairy a few years ago and dearly miss yogurt.

we like just about any type of jam/preserves in it. We also really like applesauce and cinnamon, as well as the ideas listed above

All of the additions sound great, I can't wait to try them.

One question though, does vanilla mean adding vanilla extract? or some other kind of vanilla flavouring?

I would use vanilla extract.

I flavor plain yogurt with maple syrup if I want it sweet. And sprinkle it with toasted wheat germ and ground flax seeds.

You can also make it savory- raita, tzatziki, yogurt cheese- there was a long thread on this awhile back, lets see if I can find it:

Maple syrup! I love it!

Here is a great breakfast: Sweeten yogurt with maple syrup. Mix in rolled oats, rolled wheat, wheat germ, dried fruit, wheat germ etc. Leave on the counter while you take a shower. By the time you're dried off and dressed, the yogurt has softened the grains and it is the perfect consistency. I have not done this for a long time. Will have to do it soon as my mouth is watering!

My dd loves frozen friut in her yogurt - especially blueberries. You can get organic blueberries, raspberries, mangos at health food stores or Trader Joes. Its good with wheatgerm on it too!

Plain yogurt with maple syrup and vanilla added is a staple in this house.

We also use it for cooking (Indian recipes, mostly).
