Ladies, are you still buying the flavoured yogurts at the store? It seems these days there is an entire aisle devoted to Yogurt at the grocery store and so much of it is flavoured and sweetened with either loads of sugar or artificial sweeteners, along with artificial flavours and even colors. In addition to all the extra calories and chemicals, if you’re buying the individually-portioned yogurts, you are wasting a lot of money for the convenience of having them divvy up yogurt into disposable plastic containers for you, saving you all of 2 minutes it takes to put yogurt into a small tupperware container. Now that I have berated you, may I suggest an alternative?
It is so easy to flavour your own yogurt, ladies! There are many ways to do it- you can simply add a little honey or maple syrup, you can add some fruit puree or fresh or canned fruit, or, if you are going for a taste that mimics (but improves upon) the fruit-at-the-bottom style yogurt you are used to buying at the store, here is your solution: flavour your yogurt with jam.
homemade strawberry jam smells in the middle of winter- its like summer in a jar!
Simply purchase a larger container of an all-natural (organic is even better!) plain yogurt at the fat content that you prefer, and add jam to taste. I only need about half of a teaspoon’s worth for my daughter to love her big bowl of yogurt in the morning.
This tip is definitely kid-approved!
