How to make non-fat plain YOGURT more palatable?

anne | Mar 30, 200405:11 PM     31

i just bought some very good quality non-fat plain yogurt today, mostly because i wanted the live cultures to help my digestion... and it is so very sour! i've been eating ultra sweetened yogurt for so long, i'm not used to this (although i've tamed my sweet-tooth quite a bit), although i knew to expect it. i want to include yogurt in my diet from now on for its health benefits.

i added some honey and sweet cereal to make it more palatable, but i still sort of gasp when i eat it (because it's so sour).

i keep it in the office. do you know a good way to eat it (what to add, besides a cup of sugar)? i don't know if fruit will lessen the sourness so much. or should i make it savory and use it as a dip?

i'll also welcome recipes to cook with it, etc.

thanks!
