Maple-Vanilla Greek Yogurt

Making your own flavored yogurt is a breeze — and you can control the ingredients and sugar level to boot. This is a perfect base for granola-fruit parfaits.

Maple-Vanilla Greek Yogurt

Hands-on preparation time: Five minutes

Total preparation time: Eight hours

Makes 1 cup


  • 1-inch piece of vanilla bean, split crosswise (or 1 tbs. high-quality vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup strained whole-milk yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs. maple syrup or honey

Scrape the vanilla-bean seeds into the yogurt and stir together, adding the vanilla-bean pod as well. Refrigerate in a small container overnight to infuse the vanilla flavor into the yogurt. Drizzle with the maple syrup or honey before serving.
