Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

This post is a part of a series of 101 ways to flavor plain yogurt. (Keep scrolling down after you click on the ‘series’ link to see the entire list.) For more information about yogurt in general, go to my Yogurt page.

I forgot to mention last week was that all of the recipes in this series offer ballpark measurements for the ingredients. Feel free to adjust to your own taste and eyeball it. No rocket science going on here.

Also, in case anyone is feeling a little anxious about the regularity of the series, I’ve decided that Thursday will be Yogurt 101 day barring any unforeseen craziness.

4. Butterscotch Yogurt

As you can well imagine, this one has been a hit chez nous. I am of the opinion that all things butterscotch flavored are due for a huge comeback.

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1  tablespoon butterscotch sauce

In a small bowl, stir together yogurt and butterscotch until smooth. Top with whipped cream and/or butterscotch chips, if desired. Serve.

 

5. Cucumber Dill Yogurt

The idea for this flavor sensation came from none other than Dina Rose of It’s Not About Nutrition.

When I served these to my kids my first-grader said, “Hey Mom, these are like the Willy Wonka cups!” She proceeded to gobble two down.

1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Small pinch salt
Half of a cucumber, peeled

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, dill, lemon juice, garlic powder, and salt until smooth and well combined. Set aside.

Cut the cucumber half into thirds. Using a melon baller, scoop out the seeds of each cucumber section leaving the bottom in order to create a cup. Fill each cup with the yogurt mixture and serve.

 

6. Strawberry Yogurt

I like to use Trader Joe’s low-sugar strawberry jam for this recipe. If you have regular jam, start with 1 tablespoon and add more to taste.

1/2 cup plain yogurt
2T low-sugar strawberry jam (or to taste)

Stir yogurt and jam until combined. Top with fruit. Serve.
