Yogurt 101: Happy Hour

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

This week I’ve decided to give you a bunch of ideas for flavoring plain yogurt based on cocktails. My husband went to bartending school back in the day. As a result, we have a small cocktail library. I dusted them off and set about to select those that sounded intriguing and whose names are kid-friendly.

30. Cape Cod Yogurt

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1-2 tablespoons cranberry sauce

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and lime juice until smooth. Garnish with cranberry sauce and serve.

 

31. Fru Fru Yogurt

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
Banana slices
Chopped peach

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt, sugar, and lime juice until combined. Top with banana and peaches. Serve

 

32. Pina Colada Yogurt

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon sugar
Fresh pineapple, chopped
Sweetened coconut, toasted

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and sugar until smooth. Top with pineapple and coconut. Serve immediately.

 

33. Hawaiian Breeze Yogurt

My kids love the vibrant pink color the yogurt turns once the cranberry sauce is mixed in.

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1-2 tablespoons cranberry sauce
1/3 cup chopped fresh pineapple

Spoon the yogurt into a small bowl. Top with pineapple and cranberry sauce. Serve immediately.

 

34. Sea Breeze Yogurt

This was not as disgusting as I thought it would be. I actually ate the whole thing. But I might have sprinkled a little sugar on top first.

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup chopped peeled and skinned grapefruit
1 tablespoon cranberry sauce

Place yogurt in a small bowl. Top with grapefruit and cranberry sauce. Serve.

 

35. Woo Woo Yogurt

1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon cranberry sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh peach

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and cranberry sauce until combined. Top with peaches. Serve.

 

36. Fuzzy Navel Yogurt

 1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
1/4 cup chopped fresh peach

In a small bowl, stir together the yogurt and orange juice concentrate until well combined. Top with peaches and serve.

  1. What a great idea! You’ve inspired me to try some fuzzy navel yogurt later today. Never thought I’d say that. By the way- do you take the photos yourself? They are EXCELLENT!

  2. You all are so nice. Yes, the photos are all mine. I feel like I’ve still got a bit to learn. As they say – the more you know the less you know. Thanks!

  3. Oh wow, I just saw the Woo Woo Yogurt. I used to drink those in college (peach liquor, vodka and cranberry). How funny to find it as a snack for my little one. Great blog, I’m in central CT too!
