Stop spending a dollar per serving on yogurt!

I have written about my love for Chobani flips a lot. Perhaps too much. (Is mentioning them in SEVEN different posts too much?) They are delicious, slightly healthy, and are killing my grocery budget. When whining about how much I spend on food, I realized that spending more than one dollar for a single serving of yogurt was just not practical. I had decided to just give them up when my friend Katherine suggested that I attempt to make my own.

It took me a long time, but I have finally gotten there. These are DELICIOUS. They aren’t super healthy. (If that’s your thing, I will consistently disappoint you.) I just wanted something that would taste good and not cost a fortune. It was important to me that I really loved these and that my kids would eat them too.

Customize the sweetness

The amount of sugar can be altered to your taste. I found that 2 teaspoons most closely mimicked the sweetness of Chobani Flips Vanilla Yogurt. If you actually like the taste of Greek yogurt, you might find this too sweet. Start with 1 teaspoon of sugar and work your way up from there. You can of course use honey, agave syrup, or stevia if you prefer. I would really recommend actually measuring out the ingredients so you can experiment with the sweetness and know exactly how much you’re adding.

If you, like me, are obsessed with flavored coffee syrups (Torani and the like), these work GREAT for yogurt. One full pump per 1/2 cup of yogurt is just right. Vanilla and any fruit flavor are good candidates to mix in, and if you have a sugar free one, save yourself some sugar.

The base of these is plain, unflavored, unsweetened Greek yogurt. I make my own, but that is absolutely not necessary. The only reason I make my own is because I want whole milk yogurt for my toddler and I can’t find it at the grocery store.

But buying bulk containers of plain Greek yogurt will still save you a ton of money over buying Flips. It is also nice to have on hand for recipes.

And one last thing I must note: It is best to mix these up individually, right before eating. If you sweeten the yogurt ahead of time, the yogurt becomes thinner. I don’t really know why, but it has happened to me every single time. Adding sugar right before you eat them is not that hard.

  1. This would be great for my son with Autism. I can only get him to eat yougurt with stuff in it. Were working on adding trail mix. You know the ones with m&ms. I figure at least he has nuts, dried fruit and yogurt. But this way I can prepackaged the quantities for him. Give him some independence.

  2. Oh I am going to make these!!! My boys would love them!! And you are so right they are way way too expensive to buy single servings of! Thank you for sharing!!!

  3. Yay! I’m so glad you gave it a try and now I can crib ideas from you. I just started making yogurt again. I’m doing cold start in the instant pot with ultra pasteurized milk (because raising and lowering the temp is what I hate most) and then straining it in big coffee filters. It’s weirdly satisfying? And I’m going to experiment with using the whey in bread.

    1. Do tell about the whey in bread when you try it! I always put it in the fridge with good intentions but have used it exactly zero times.
