Fat Free Yogurt Ideas

  • nonfat plain yogurt mixed with SF/FF instant pudding mix. You can start out by mixing 1 teaspoon with a cup of yogurt. Let it sit for a minute or so to thicken up. You can add more pudding to taste. It's delicious and Core! You can also try it with different pudding flavors.
  • Just mix the ff plain yogurt with vanilla and splenda until you get the sweetness you like.
  • Mix pineapple, blueberries, and/or strawberries in mine with a little splenda
  • Strain yogurt (with cheesecloth) it will have a lovely cream-cheese-like consistency. the flavor is concentrated and a little tart, but you can add veggies, dried dips or seasonings, herbs, lemon juice. . .whatever.

    just rubber-band some cheesecloth over a bowl and spoon the yogurt right onto it. cover it, put it in the fridge and let it drain overnight.

    if you don't have cheese cloth a paper coffee filter inside a strainer works too!!
  • I also use yogurt to make my smoothies. I use 1/2 cup skim milk & 1/2 cup plain FF yogurt plus fruit, splenda, SF syrups, etc.
  • Here's my fav:

    32 oz. fat free yogurt
    1 small pkg. (1 oz.) fat free/sugar free pistachio pudding
    1 8 oz. can of crushed pinneaple in it's own juice

    Mix it all together and let it chill for a couple of hours. YUMMY!

  • 1 large container FF plain yogurt 4 cups
    2 cups oatmeal (doesn't matter what kind you use you want raw uncooked oatmeal)
    2 cups cherries or blueberries - I generally use frozen
    4 packets splenda, more or less to taste

    Dump yogurt into a large bowl, add splenda and stir well; add oatmeal and stir; add fruit and stir. now I portion this up when I make it and usually get 5 servings of about 1 cup each maybe a little more than a cup each, refrigerate overnight.

    The oats soften and swell making the yogurt thicker, the cherries defrost, I have also added SF daVinci syrups to this for a vanilla or sometimes coconut flavor.

  • Core fruit dip

    2c FF Plain Yogurt
    1sm. box sf/ff Vanilla Pudding
    1sm. can crushed pineapple in it's own juice

    Mix together and dip away!!

    (originally posted by yipeiokyay)

  • Yogurt, pudding and fruit

    If you don't care for yogurt, you can substitute fat free sour cream. I like yogurt, but I prefer the sour cream when mixing it with ff/sf pudding mix. With white chocolate pudding mix, it almost tastes like cheesecake! VERY good!!

  • Pina Colada Yogurt

    Not quite a recipe, but an idea in development.
    Had this for dessert tonight and wanted to share.

    Mix together and serve.

    Would make a good smoothie blended with ice and a little fat-free milk.

  • Pina Colada Yogurt

    1 very ripe banana, mashed

    1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
    a dash of vanilla extract (or vanilla davinci)
    a dash of coconut extract (or coconut davinci)
    Splenda, to taste

1 Serving


1 apple
2 TBSP quick oats
butter spray
2 tsp. cinnamon

2 TBSP sugar free maple syrup

Peel and core apple. Slice thinly (if using corer-slicer, slice each slice into thirds) and place in shallow bowl or dish. Sprinkle oats over apple and spray with butter spray. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg and then drizzle with sugar free maple syrup.

Microwave on high for 4 minutes. If desired, broil for 1 minute under conventional broiler.

Core Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup quick oats
1/2 cup Splenda
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup fat free Cottage Cheese
2 Egg Whites
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

In a medium bowl, mix together oats, Splenda and cinnamon. In a blender or food processor blend cottage cheese, egg whites, baking soda, baking powder and vanilla until very creamy. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and let rest 5 minutes to soften oatmeal by absorbing liquids. There is a lot of variations in different brands of oatmeal and cottage cheese, so you may have to add a little oatmeal or skim milk if batter looks too runny or too stiff.

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place batter by spoonfuls about 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes before removing, otherwise they will stick. Makes one dozen soft cookies.

Banana Cookies - Substitute one ripe banana for the cottage cheese.

Pumpkin Cookies - Substitute 1/2 cup canned pumpkin for the cottage cheese. Use pumpkin pie spice in place of the cinnamon.

Apple Cookies - Substitute 1/2 cup unsweetened applesause for the cottage cheese. Fold in 1/2 of a pealed, finely chopped apple after wet and dry ingredients are combined.

Core Brownies
(preheat oven to 350)

3/4 c oat bran
1/4 c plus 2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 c splenda
1 package sf/ff instant chocolate jello pudding
1/2 c ff milk or water
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 c unsweetend applesauce
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Combine flour, pudding mix, cocoa, Splenda, baking soda and salt, mix well. Stir in applesauce, eggs, milk (or water), and vanilla. Mix well. Spray 8"x8" square pan with cooking spray, spread batter evenly into pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes.

OAT SCONES

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat 1 cup FF milk til scalded (with bubbles around the edge; I use my microwave).

Add 1 1/2 cups regular oatmeal (I use Snowqualmie oats) to the milk; stir; and let sit for a few minutes at least.

Spray an oven-proof large pie-pan (I use a 10") with non-stick oil (I use Mazola safflower/canola spray).

Add: 1/2 C. FF plain yogurt to the oat mixture, along with one egg, and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (I use the pre-portioned little tubs).

In another container, mix:
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 packets of Splenda (or 1 TBS. pourable Splenda, or fructose which is Core)
1 tsp. cinammon
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 cup oat bran

When mixed, quickly stir the two together and pour into the pie pan (the dough will start to bubble and rise) and quickly put into the preheated oven.

Bake approximately 30 minutes, or until browned.

After removing from oven, let sit a few minutes and turn out onto a cooling rack. Let sit 5 minutes, then cut into 8ths.

These are substantial and delicious. Eat alone, like "scones" with milk or tea, or, toast/warm them and add warmed Cinammon Apples or warmed Pineapple Rings like "shortcake".

Chocolate Cake


1 tb. instant decaf coffee (this punches up the chocolate flavor)
1 tb. hot tap water
1 cup dry oat bran (hot cereal)
3 tb. unsweetened baking cocoa (not a true Core food, but 0 points for 3 tb. cocoa, according to Food Companion)
2 medium overripe bananas with lots of black flecks (this is very important, or cake won't taste as good)
1/2 cup instant nonfat dry milk (optional)
1/2 tsp. baking soda (optional)
1 cup measures like sugar Splenda
3 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In large bowl put coffee granules. Add hot water and stir thoroughly until dissolved.

In separate bowl, combine oat bran with cocoa, nonfat dry milk and baking soda. Stir thoroughly, until well combined. Set aside.

Break up bananas over dissolved coffee. With tines of fork thoroughly mash bananas into coffee until nice and pulpy. Stir in Splenda. Crack in eggs, one at a time, and stir with fork until thoroughly mixed. Stir in vanilla. Stir in oat bran mixture.

Scrape batter into 8" square nonstick pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 20 or more minutes until cake tests done in center. (without milk/soda it takes 20 min; with additions cake takes longer). Cool.

Microwave Potato chips

You will need:

Russett Potatoes (or your favorite variety)
Paper plates
Parchment paper
Pan spray
Olive oil mister
Seasonings of choice (Salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, Mrs. Dash, cayenne pepper.... etc)


Slice potatoes on a mandoline very thinly, about 1/8th inch thick. Lay a piece of parchment on the plate and spray with Pam. Spray the potatoes with oil and seasonings.
Place another piece of parchment over the top, spraying both sides with Pam. Lay down another layer of potatoes, and repeat oiling and seasoning. Finish with another sprayed piece of parchment.
Microwave for 7-9 minutes.
Microwaves vary so experiment, starting with the least amount of time and increase. Your potato thickness will also be a factor.

These will be golden and crispy!
You can keep reusing the same pieces of parchment paper over and over.

Cooking more than two layers is your own choice, but it doesn't work well in mine so try it at your own

Pumpkin dessert

  • About half a cup of pumpkin mixed with
  • 2 egg whites,
  • a quarter cup skim milk, then
  • pumpkin pie spices and splenda, sometimes
  • a tiny bit of vanilla.

It needs to bake for 45-1 hour so you can make it at night and eat it for breakfast. It's got a lot of fiber and a lot of protein which are both hunger fighting gold. It's not like pumpkin pie really, the extra egg makes the texture slightly different.

Fried Polenta
Make the microwaver polenta. But instead of all that stirring, nuke water for 3 nminutes to get good and hot, add polenta and stir, nuke for another 5 minutes and stir. Pour into container to cool. Then slice and fry in garlic olive oil - put italian seasoning and soy parmesan before placing in pan.
