This is the only brand of yogurt I will eat because they don't use corn syrup.

In general, all that brand's sweetened yogurts have just the right amount of sweetness. When I have Yoplait or Dannon these days I almost gag on the sugar (or syrup) quantities they add. I just love Stonyfield -- and for some reason it's the cheapest at my local Whole Foods! The regular grocery stores artifically jack up the price because this is relatively "premium," I suppose.

Any good yogurt recipes? I haven't moved past the smoothie.

The link not only has recipes but you can sign up for coupons. Check it out. As for sugar, you think it is right , the  more you back off of sugar the more you redefine what is sweet.
I have been eating White Rose Natural peanut  butter made with peanuts and salt nada mas.

A friend gave me some Jiffey and I gagged ! It was nauseating .I haven't seen any studies on what these crack sugars do to you and actually seen reports by some scientists that high fructose corn syrup is getting a bad rap- right. Just like second hand smoke is okay.
I was getting heavier and realized it was the cranberry I was drinking outside my home. I reverted to water.
Since our metabolisms aren't working correctly due to the meds it would be interesting to see if any correlation between hfcs and weight.

Ah! I missed the recipe link (and the coupon link!).

What I'm surprised about is how many of that site's recipes involve cooked yogurt. I mean, I guess yogurt is a low-fat substitute for sour cream, but I eat it for the healthful bacteria (of which Stonyfield includes more varieties than Dannon -- but who knows whether that's actually better) which are acid-tolerant but not heat-tolerant! Why pay for the good yogurt and then cook those little guys to death?

I might actually try this one, though -- my mom makes this with sour cream:
Ambrosia
Ingredients:
32oz Stonyfield Farm Vanilla Yogurt
1 cup pecans
1 cup shredded coconut
20 oz can unsweetened pineapple chunks, drained and chilled
11 oz can mandarin organges, drained and chilled

As for the sugar aspects you mention -- one of the best things I did was stop adding sweetners (artificial or otherwise) to coffee. Just the little sugar in the milk does it for me now, and I actually enjoy the real taste of the coffee. As a consequence, adjusting to the relative bitterness of coffee makes my taste for sugar in my diet overall much lower. (And since I drink decaf and green tea, I'm not having huge caffeine issues!)

I've gotten really into reading about the science of cooking, recently. It really makes you appreciate food more -- and now I actually know how to cook meats!
I highly, highly recommend this book: On Food and Cooking, by McGee. I've been making it my bedtime reading

Stonyfield is the best. I love Tzatziki sauce. It is the white sauce on gyros. I eat it plain, or dip some bread into it.

Tzatziki Recipe
Ingredients:
2 cups Plain yogurt
1 medium Cucumber -- peeled and grated
1 clove Garlic -- minced
2 teaspoons Olive oil
1 tablespoon White vinegar
1 tablespoon Finely chopped fresh dill
1 teaspoon Finely chopped fresh mint
1 pinch Salt

Directions:
Combine all the ingredients in a glass bowl and chill for several hours.

I drain the yogurt, and press out as much of the water as I can with the cucumbers. I also do the mint and dill to taste.

Hello Christine,

Thanks for that recipe ! I have always wondered what Tzatziki consisted of. I love it also. I remember hearing it was made with yogurt.

Christine,

When you say "drain the yogurt" -- do you do that with cheesecloth? Or some other method?

Does anyone know if that process leaches healthful components of the yogurt (e.g., bacteria)? I often pour off that liquid from opened yogurt but I wonder if that's somehow defeating the purpose.

...I can see how it'd make for better Tzatziki, though.  :D

I LOVE Stonyfield yogurt. It's almost theonly brand I can tolerate. The others are so cloyingly sweet and artificial tasting. Plus, I like the layer of cream on top :)

Occasionally I'll eat yogurt and, I agree, Stonyfield is great.  The others leave me feeling listless and undigested.
If you think your lonely now, wait until tonight.

Carbon NYC,
I don't know for sure if draining the liquid from the yogurt would take away the good bacteria. My guess would be no....I think the good bacteria is in the yogurt itself.

I take a colander, drape it with cheesecloth or a coffee filter, then place the whole thing over a bowl. It usually drains for a few hours in the fridge. You can make it without draining the yogurt, it is just a little thinner, and will have some water sitting on top which will have to be mixed in before eating. I have made it both ways- taste is the same, I just perfer it a little thicker.

I also forgot to add I peel and seed the cucumbers. I just love the stuff!
