This post is a part of a series of 101 ways to enjoy 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 drinkable yogurt is different from a smoothie only in that it is thinner and strained. But even with these subtle differences, my kids were entranced.
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) raspberries
1 ripe banana
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
Mix the yogurt, milk, vanilla, raspberries, banana, and sugar together in a blender until smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer in order to remove the raspberry seeds. Serve.
Yield: approximately 2 cups
Prep-time: 10 minutes
I finally dusted off the little bento cutters I bought a year ago. The kids ate it all up. It feels a little unfair. How could they not?
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
Watermellon, thinly sliced (about 1/3-inch)
Cantalope, thinly sliced (about 1/3-inch)
In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, lime juice, and sugar. Set aside. Cut out flower shapes from the watermelon and cantalope with a small bento cutter. Transfer the yogurt to a shallow bowl and top with the flowers and blueberries. Serve immediately.
