Make Your Own Drinkable Yogurt
Have you seen the drinkable yogurts at the store? Perhaps in technicolored packaging, meant for kids? Super simple to make! They're only thinned-down yogurt, after all. I hesitated to post this- it's so basic, but such a quick and easy and NUTRITIOUS snack. (Probiotics, low fat, good protein...it's nutritious, right?)
I like to plop some yogurt into one of those plastic tupperware shakers- you know, the kind with a big ol' star insert and a flip top lid? Pour in milk, and then whatever flavors look good that day. Today it was honey and a bit of thin jam, I just used the liquid-ish portion of my favorite plum jam and left the fruit chunks behind for another day's sandwich. I make my own yogurt, and it's pretty tart, so that's why the double dose of sweet. Plus, I'm pregnant. I just really like sweets, OK?
This makes an easy and quick breakfast, or an afternoon snack. A spoon and a big cup would probably work just as well, but you'd have to work a little harder to get the lumps out, and I don't like to work that hard!
I actually prefer my yogurt this way, it gets rid of any texture issues left over from my childhood.
