Plain yogurt will never be the same.

I will admit, we were a bit late jumping on the greek yogurt wagon.  I’ve never been a big fan of yogurt, especially those filled with sugar and artificial colorings.

Recently though, I needed to buy a container of greek yogurt for some baking.  With a little left over I decided to add some fresh fruit and have it for an afternoon snack with my boys.

We were immediately sold.  I now have a container in my fridge at all times.  Sweet or savory, the possibilities are endless!

So far, our favorite way to enjoy it has been by adding in fresh fruit.  With spring upon us strawberries and blueberries have been making a frequent appearance in the produce aisle and in our fridge.

Ingredients
  • 5-6 strawberries mashed
  • ¾ - 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • Drizzle of honey or maple syrup (optional)
Additional toppings for added taste and crunch...
  • toasted almonds or pecans
  • granola
Instructions
  1. In a bowl mash berries with a fork to release their natural juice and sweetness. Add in greek yogurt and stir until combine. Test for sweetness and add in a drizzle of honey or maple syrup to your desired sweetness. Stir.

Add in a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness and you have a wonderful afternoon snack and packed lunch option.

 

Another option for enjoying this yogurt is to put it in a small container and freeze overnight.  Pop it into your packed lunch the next day and it will be cold and thawed by lunch time. We found these molds on Amazon, but any small container does the trick.

      I make my own and then strain. I love the convenience of being able to just buy one sometimes… But I do what Alison wrote make my own fruit flavored bc I don’t want all the extra sugars thanks for the link!

          Hi Tammy! I have a small yogurt maker. It’s not that expensive.. I think around $30 on Amazon. I am able to make delicious plain yogurt in a few minutes and then I let it culture overnight. To this yogurt I add fresh fruit, honey, maple syrup…the possibilities are endless.

            Do you use the yogurt packets available online or how do you actually make it, what ingredients do I need. I looked it up and would be interested in getting one, just not sure how to use it. Sorry for all the questions, homemade yogurt is just new to me?
