I like a berry blend (TJ's has a great one w/blueberries, rasberries and blackberries). The mild berries cut the sourness of the yogurt and the blackberries add a little tartness.

Nice crisp apples are surprisingly terrific compliment to yogurt and they are low in calories, high in fiber and very filling.

Agave nectar
Vanilla extract powder (Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla from either Whole Foods or Trader Joes', I'm not sure which)
Cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

I sprinkle in Kashi go lean & banana slices--- you get crunchy, tangy and sweet all at once + more fiber!

I've been adding granola to my yogurt forever, love it. So many "fat-free" yogurts are so loaded with sugar that I won't eat them, so you do far better to add your own sweetener. I also like raisins, and you can add a little jam to make a less sweet version of fruited yogurt, or applesauce or fresh or canned or frozen fruit all works well.

This is totally weird, but last night I was eating Fage 0% greek yogurt with splenda sprinkled on top, and drinking a diet cream soda. I didn't mix the Splenda in very well, so the bottom of the yogurt was really bitter. Because I was too lazy to get up and get more splenda, I just poured in a little of the diet cream soda, and it was actually really good!

Granola - I like 'Save the Forest' variety - mmmmm

I also like adding savory mixes like salsa - real good snack.

canned fruit - make sure you get the kind that is canned in juice, not syrup. I either pour off or drink the juice before mixing it into my yogurt. Favorites include pinapple and mandarin oranges.

Also, what brand of yogurt are you eating? I find a huge variation in the bitterness between brands. My two favorites are Stonyfield Farms and Fage.

Why not put that yogurt on a potato with some salsa? Plain yogurt is an awesome replacement for sour cream.
