Upgrade your Greek yogurt with flavor twists

Updated on March 31, 2016

I've spent several years on a journey of finding the right yogurt that fit into my healthy diet. I've always tried to eat healthy and lose weight. Part of my diet is having Greek yogurt everyday. The best yogurts are Greek yogurts, as they have a higher amount of protein, lower carbs, and more of the beneficial probiotics. The Greek yogurts that seem to taste better tend to have more artificial flavors and ingredients and more carbs and calories. The healthiest Greek yogurts are the plain and fat-free varieties. The problem with that is, well, they don't taste good. It's hard to eat something when it doesn't taste good. Yes, I want to be healthy, but let's be serious, I want to enjoy it!
