1/3 cup vanilla Greek yogurt mixed with a little vanilla extract and strawberries, blueberries, and black berries (probably a cups worth, I didn't measure.)

It's a snack to me. A meal should be much more substantial than that.

For me, that'd be a meal. But I'd eat that much about 6 times a day.
For most, probably a snack and a meal would probably be larger or more calorie dense.

I have that at breakfast but with toast or oatmeal to go with. So snack. Depends on your cals and when you eat it really.

Vanilla extract that's a brillant idea. I never thought to use it in my greek yogurt. Thanks!

I'd say snack.

One suggestion- use plain Greek yogurt, and add your own flavor and sweetness to it.  You can cut sugar that way.  =)

I LOVE Greek yogurt and berries!!

I thought about that but this was my first time trying the vanilla extract thing so I wasn't sure if it would work. Now that I know it will, that's def how I'll be doing it from now on. Do you know how I can flavor it other ways? Like should I mush up strawberries for strawberry yogurt or do they make extracts for other things than vanilla and almond? Is there a healthier way to make chocolate yogurt?

I just throw in maple syrup and fresh fruit, usually.  I would imagine honey or maple syrup with some cocoa powder would be good for chocolate, or mashed fruit.  There are TONS of extracts out there (try Whole Foods), but I usually just do the syrup and fruit thing myself.  Then I add some Kashi Go Lean or another healthy cereal and ground flax, maybe some cinnamon.  That will make for a great breakfast!
