Fruit and Yogurt

Show Me the Good LifeWe love homemade Greek yogurt, and we use a whole lot of it. I'm making yogurt at least three times a week. There are many ways to make yogurt and I've tried quite a few of them. These days, I make it easy on myself and use a yogurt maker. Here's a recent blog post I did about how I make yogurt.

It shouldn't be long until many of us have fresh fruit or berries on the farm that we can add to our yogurt. 

Our current favorite way of eating yogurt is to mix fruit (blueberries, strawberries, peaches, bananas ... whatever you can easily get), yogurt, a bit of sweetener if desired, rolled oats and nuts. This can be breakfast or dessert and it's delicious.

Want your children to eat yogurt instead of ice cream? Try this! 

On this particular morning, I used a banana.

Start with however much yogurt you want to use. I use about 3/4 cup. Add a bit of sweetener if desired. I add sugar, my husband does not. Honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, artificial sweetener ... whatever you want to use will work. If using granulated sugar, let it sit for a few minutes to allow the sugar to dissolve.

In a separate bowl, mash the fruit.

Stir it all up, top with chopped walnuts, pecans or other nuts, and you have a quick, yummy and healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.
