I like using Greek yogurt for this recipe, because it has more protein than regular yogurt, and the kids really like the thick and creamy texture. Feel free to adjust the amount of honey and sugar in this recipe to suit your tastes. If you're using plain yogurt, you will likely need some honey, but if the kids are used to the tart flavor of yogurt, leave it out.
