I like the taste of flavored yogurt, but I do not care for the taste of plain yogurt at all. Not by itself, that is.

I didn't know until recently that I could replace cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise in many recipes with plain yogurt but fortunately my friend's co-worker told her, then my friend told me, and now I know. Since I learned this "secret" I have used **Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt **in several recipes instead of the fattening ingredients listed above and I have had terrific results. The plain yogurt provides a creamy taste and texture to many recipes while drastically reducing the fat content.

So far I have used  **Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt  **instead of cream cheese in potato soup, mashed potatoes, and in a potato casserole. I have also put a dollop of the plain yogurt in a bowl of chili, used it in my hot wing dip recipe instead of sour cream and I have used half mayonnaise, half plain yogurt in potato salad. The yogurt alters the taste a little bit, but it doesn't make the food taste worse, just a little different. My family didn't even notice the difference in the mashed potatoes or the casserole. They were able to tell that there was something different about the taste of the dip, soup, and potato salad, but theystill liked the food and ate it without complaining. I don't think it's going to take long at all before many of my recipes will contain Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt and nobody will notice it all.

The amount of fat that can be reduced by using Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt instead of cream cheese, sour cream, or mayonnaise is astounding. There is 83% less fat per serving of Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt than there is in a serving of sour cream. There is 90% less fat in this yogurt than in a serving of cream cheese, and 89% less fat per serving of the yogurt.than there is in one serving of mayonnaise. That's a lot of unhealthy fat that can be cut out of your recipes without making a huge difference in the consistency, texture, or taste of them.

The container of **Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt  **gives many suggestions for recipes where the yogurt can be used instead of more fattening ingredients:

*Sustitute sour cream with the yogurt in tacos, fahitas, and other Mexican recipes, on baked potatoes, in macaroni salad, as a garnish for soups and Chili, in muffins, and in Coffee Cake.*

*Substitute mayonnaise with Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt in potatoes, macaroni, tuna salad, chicken salad, an dips.*

*Substitute cream cheese with this plain yogurt in cheesecakes, cakes and pies, appetizer spreads, and cheese souffle'.*

www.dannonkitchen.com has many other recipe ideas, and I'm sure you can think of your own recipes that can be made withDannon All Natural Plain Yogurt, too.

I suggest using the recipes at the website to get used to the amount of plain yogurt needed to substitute the more fattening ingredients in different recipes. Some recipes need a little more yogurt than cream cheese, sour cream, or mayonnaise, but the fat content will still be much lower using Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt in their place.

Maybe my friend and I have been living under a rock, so to say, and you are already very well aware of the information in this review. If you weren't, try cutting out some of the fat in your meals by using Plain Dannon All Natural Yogurt when possible. Your taste buds won't complain and your body will thank you.

In the first place, the brand of Dannon yogurts is not my favorite, and the Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt is no exception. It has kind of a chalky texture that stays in your mouth, which I do not like at all. It also has a bit of a gross aftertaste that just lingers for a long time, even after you brush your teeth.

The Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt itself is one of the worst of the brand. You would think that being a plain yogurt it would have a vanilla taste, but it does not have any taste at all. On top of that, it is pretty bitter on its own. I usually have to add some fruit to it. That would be fine, but I also have to add a bit of sugar and even a little cinnamon, which makes it less healthy.

I prefer to use Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt for smoothies. Because it doesn't have a flavor and is really healthy on its own (no added sugar), it makes a perfect, healthy base for a fruit smoothie - even having probiotics, since it's a yogurt.

Perfect for smoothies!

By

Comments about Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt:

My daughter and I love yogurt. We eat it almost daily. I love to buy Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt for many different things. While the taste of the plain yogurt alone is not bad, we like to spice it up a little bit. Dannon's plain yogurt has the perfect consistency to make smoothies. I like to make smoothie for breakfast and for snacks. Sometimes I like to use baby spinach and fruits blended with the plain yogurt and it makes the perfect snack! They are always a hit with my two year old daughter. Another thing the plain yogurt is good for is to make a yogurt coffee cake. It is super yummy! More than anything we like to use plain yogurt to make our own yogurt bowls. We both get a bowl of the plain yogurt and just start adding all of our favorite fruits into it. It tastes great and it is healthy. I love that my daughter willingly wants to eat this because she thinks it is such a treat. It is way better for her body than junk foods that a lot of kids love to eat. It is also a great way for her to get calcium since she does not drink milk too much. I would definitely recommend Dannon's plain yogurt to others because it can be used in so many ways and it is very affordable. Consistency, The consistency of Dannon's plain yogurt is great. It is actually a little more thick than some other brand I have tried and I love that about it.

Great tasting plain yogurt

By 

from Stroudsburg, PA

Comments about Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt:

I like buying the Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt becuase there are so many different ways you can eat it. I mainly like to eat it by putting fruit and granola on top, or making yogurt smoothies with it. But there are so many different recipes that I can use the plain yogurt for. I like using this yogurt as a sour cream when I have mexican food, or to my soups. I also like using it to cook Indian/Pakistani food. I like using it to make mint chutney, cucumber yogurt salad, mango lassi, and butter chicken, just to name a few.

The Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt is very delicious, and it has a very thick, rich, and creamy consistency. It's really great tasting for a plain yogurt, and even tastes good without using it in a recipe or adding things to it.

It's also great because it's made out of all natural ingredients. It's only made out of cultured grade a reduced fat free milk, and pectin. It doesn't have a large list of ingredients like a lot of other yogurts do. It also only have 100 calories per serving, and 8 grams of protein. It's a very healthy and protein rich plain yogurt. It's very delicious too. It's a must have in anyones refrigerator since you can do so many things with plain yogurt.

Flavor/Taste
There is no added flavors in this yogurt. It's plain which is why I like it so much. I can eat it with fruit or granola on top, I can put it in smoothies, or I can use it like a sour cream. I also like to use it to cook indian and pakistani food, or mexican too. It's a very delicious plain yogurt, and it's very rich and smooth tasting. It's one of the best plain yogurts i've had in awhile.

Variety
The Dannon All Natural Yogurts only comes in the plain flavor. If you don't like or want plain yogurt then Dannon has a wide variety of other products and flavors. If you do want plain yogurt, Dannon also has a plain Greek yogurt, and they also have plain in the light and fit variety as well.

Consistency
Dannon All Natural has a very rich and creamy texture. It's definitely not runny at all. It's thicker then other plain yogurts that I've tried.

Convenience
It's nice and convenient because it's a simple plain yogurt and I can use to in any recipes I want to, or eat it however I want to.

Multiple uses!

By 

from Kansas

Comments about Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt:

Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt has multiple uses. Sure, you can throw some granola and fruit in it and eat it like normal yogurt and it tastes good. It can be used as a healthier substitute in a lot of recipes. As another reviewer mentioned already, it is a GREAT face mask!

You can find Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt at just about any store. It's about average in price. Like I mentioned previously, there are a lot of uses for this yogurt. It can be used to replace sour cream, cream, and cream cheese in recipes! You can use it in your mashed potatoes, casseroles, on top of your enchiladas or tacos, various crock pot recipes, or in homemade soups. You can save on calories and fat using Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt as a substitute! There is another kind of strange use for the yogurt; it can be used as a face mask. I first saw it online and I thought it was a little weird but I like trying home remedies so I gave it a try. You simply rub some of it onto your face, let it sit a while, then rinse it off. It leaves your face feeling smooth and your pores looking smaller. I know it sounds strange but it works great for my dry skin!

Seriously get some Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt. It has a bunch of uses!

Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt is the perfect compliment

By 

from USA

Comments about Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt:

In a wold of all kinds of flavored yogurts, plain yogurt is often the best. Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt offers all of the good qualities a person might look for in plain yogurt. Its flavor is excellent and so is its rich, creamy texture. When compared to some of the other brands on the market, its price is just right---not expensive at all. It's a perfect compliment to spending budgets of any size.
The all-natural ingredients it is made with makes it a healthy addition to the refrigerator for dieters and non-dieters alike. It mixes beautifully with fresh fruit, or as a substitute for milk with granola cereals. Dannon's All Natural Plain Yogurt also freezes well when used in desert recipes, or as a frozen treat in its own right.
It's an A+ product to use when making homemade smoothies in a blender. Its light texture melds well with fresh fruits, juices and protein powder---It is just that good.

A truly natural plain yogurt

By 

from Clarksville, TN

Comments about Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt:

I love this natural yogurt because it has no additional vitamin D added like some of the other plain yogurts do. Actually, it is the only plain natural yogurt that I have seen in my grocery store that has no vitamin D added and to me, that is why this yogurt is natural.

a great place to start, for healthy or ethnic

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt:

I tried this product first as a starter ingredient for several Indian dishes--you add cilantro, garlic, ginger, & spices to it then marinate chicken in it before grilling. It's also the base for a really great salad made by chopping tomato & cucumber, then adding to the yogurt along with ground cumin. This is a really healthy base for sauces & is good as a topping for baked potato. Also consider adding some powdered sugar and using as a dip for fruit.

great price for close to greek style

By 

from Richmond, VA

Comments about Dannon All Natural Plain Yogurt:

Dannon plain yogurt has the tart thick creamy taste and texture of the expensive greek yogurts without the price tag. it holds up with a thick texture, not runny like other grocery store brands. I add different toppings every day: raisins, peanut butter, mangoes, apple butter, sunflower seeds, banana--whatever's fresh. I also use plain yogurt in place of sour cream in baked ziti and other recipes to cut fat out of the dish.
