Did you know that you can make fresh fruit yogurt at home? It’s so simple to make your own flavored yogurt so that you can mix things up, without including any mystery ingredients that you might find in the store-bought versions.
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 leftover, 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 fresh fruit. With spring upon us strawberries and blueberries have been making a frequent appearance in the produce aisle and in our fridge.

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.
