Yogurt 101

This post is a part of a series of 101 ways to flavor plain yogurt. For more information about yogurt in general, go to my Yogurt page.

7. Mint Yogurt

You could throw a little lime juice into this one and call it Mojito Yogurt.

Mint Yogurt

4-5 medium fresh mint leaves
1 -2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 cup plain yogurt

Place mint and sugar in a small bowl. Grind together with a muddler or something similar until the leaves are crushed into small pieces. Add yogurt to bowl and mix well making sure to scrape all of the mint mixture off of the bottom. Serve.


8. Mint Yogurt with Pineapple


You guessed it, Mint Yogurt with some chopped fresh pineapple thrown on top. I got the idea for this one from 80 Breakfasts. Serve immediately because the pineapple contains enzymes or something that will break down the yogurt if left sitting together too long. 


9. Mint Chocolate Chip Yogurt

1/2 cup plain yogurt
4-5 fresh mint leaves
1 teaspoon sugar
1-2 teaspoons mini chocolate chips or chocolate shavings

In a small bowl, muddle together the mint and the sugar (see #7 Mint Yogurt). Add the yogurt and half of the chocolate chips. Stir well and top with remaining chips. Serve. 


10. Chocolate Yogurt

I’m not terribly fond of this flavor. Chocolate should not be tangy. But my preschooler guaranteed it’s inclusion on the list when she said, “I just want to eat chocolate yogurt all day Every chocolate yogurt in the whole world Then I’d get a tummy ache Just kidding!”


1/2 cup plain yogurt
3 teaspoons chocolate syrup
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
Small pinch salt

Mix the yogurt, syrup, vanilla, and salt in a small bowl until the color is uniform. Serve. Might be yummy topped with chopped banana or slivered almonds.


11. Lime Pie Yogurt

Ideally, this would be made with key lime juice. Alas, the world is not a perfect place and we do not live in Flordia.

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1-2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
Whipped cream for garnish

In a small bowl stir the yogurt, sugar, and lime juice until smooth. Garnish with whipped cream. Serve.

  1. This is fantastic. I am sending this list to my husband right now. We make our own yogurt about twice a week, but rarely get more exciting with flavorings than adding a little honey and some berries.
