Flavored yogurts from the store are usually full of added sugars. You can easily make your own at home, starting with plain yogurt and adding fresh or frozen fruit, fruit preserves, and granola. Try this combo made with peaches! Top with store-bought granola (look for a brand with low added sugar) or make this quick and easy Fruit-Sweetened Granola. You can make several jars ahead of time for a quick grab-and-go breakfast. Add the granola just before eating to keep it crunchy.
