Thanks rhonda! I need to just have you on speed dial.

My first thought was cinnamon but i wasnt sure if it would make it worse

Honey would be good. I like to put a spoonful of GrapeNuts in mine to give it some crunch.

What about the ones that are flavored but do not have chunks of fruit in them? DS will eat the "smooth" yogurts but does not care of the "chunky" ones.  But as Rhonda mentioned honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon. Do you like granola? That is good, too.  But if you don't like the texture of the fruit you may not like that either.

I make a yummy avocado dip, dressing using plain greek yogurt, avocado, jalapeno, cilantro, onion, garlic, home made buttermilk, sea salt and pepper.

You can also use plain yogurt as a subsitute for sour cream. I use it on tacos, quesadillas, soups, etc.  Instead of using sour cream as a base for my veggie dips I use plain yogurt.  It tastes the same and is so much better for you than sour cream.  And I am a big fan of sour cream!  :-)

So you could use some of it for things other than eating it out of a bowl.

You can use it to balance the cheeses when you make a 4 cheese lasagna. You can also use it for spinach quiche and frittata. If you want to try flavoring it to eat in a bowl, try using some extracts like lemon, banana, and I saw peanut butter extract recently. You might also try mixing it with Hersey's chocolate.
