Having read the question How to get the flavors to meld when I add fruit and sugar to plain yogurt?, I still have a question. I enjoy vanilla-flavored greek yogurt. I know pure vanilla extract is a very strong flavoring. How much vanilla should I add to a cup of plain greek yogurt? How much Splenda to the same amount of yogurt?

This is a matter of taste. You should experiment and see what you prefer.

Based on these blog entries chosen because they come early in search results for "homemade vanilla yogurt"

you might want to start your experimentation with the following ratios:

  • 3 tablespoons of vanilla per gallon of yogurt
  • 3/4 cup sugar equivalent per gallon of yogurt

On a per cup basis, this works out to about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and 2 1/4 teaspoons of sugar or equivalent.

  • Great! Now I have a place to start! Commented Jan 12, 2014 at 21:59

Don't remember where I got it; 32 oz container, 1 teaspoon vanilla a little less than a 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 3 tablespoons powdered sugar

Good luck,



32 oz. of Greek yogurt, 2 tsp. vanilla extract, a scant 1/2 cup of Splenda.

Mix well and enjoy. I prefer my yogurt a little on the sweet side. So experiment.
