What Can I Do With Yogurt That Is Too Sweet?

Good Questions

Q: Long time listener, first time caller! I bought some (on sale) Greek yogurt with honey mixed in, and it is sickeningly sweet. I hate to throw it away, but I just can't eat it.

Does anyone have any baking or cooking ideas in which I could use the yogurt?

Editor: Vallen, one idea is to mix the too-sweet yogurt with plain yogurt to make it palatable. Another idea is this recipe we published yesterday:

Apple Yogurt Cake with a Cinnamon-Sugar Streak

Just reduce the sugar to about 3/4 cup to allow for the sweetness of the yogurt (or reduce to 1/2 cup and taste the batter before baking).

Readers, what would you suggest for Vallen's too-sweet yogurt?
