Yogurt is an excellent source of calcium and protein. Plain yogurt comes in fat-free, reduced-fat and whole-milk varieties. Another delicious option is to add your own flavorings to plain yogurt. If you don't care for plain yogurt, or you just want something different, you can add vanilla extract to plain yogurt.

Place the plain yogurt in a small bowl.

Pour the granulated sugar or honey and the vanilla extract over the plain yogurt. Stir well.

Chill the yogurt for 20 or 30 minutes to blend the flavors, or eat immediately if desired.


Add frozen fruit such as blueberries, raspberries or blackberries to your vanilla yogurt. If you add fruit, you may not need the honey or sugar to sweeten the yogurt.
