This is almost too easy to post, but I still think it’s worth passing along. You know that drinkable yogurt in the grocery store? The kind your kids love, but it’s so ridiculously overpriced, over-sweetened, and over-packaged, you hate to buy it? You can make it healthier and at home with just two ingredients.
Buy some plain, whole-milk natural yogurt (organic brands like Stonyfield Farm generally have a thinner consistency, which is what you want for this.) Also buy some 100% juice or “nectar” (Again, I find that brands from the health-food store like Knudsen work best. Ideally, you want a juice that is denser than something like apple juice or cranberry cocktail.) Here, I’ve used concord grape, but other standout juices for this include pineapple, mango-apricot, and carrot blends.
In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup of yogurt with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the juice, whisking until smooth. If your kids are used to the sweeter store-bought stuff, add a spoonful of agave nectar or honey. That’s it–and there’s no blender to wash!
Update: I’m making this so often now, I just shake juice and yogurt together in a sippy cup. Just eyeball the amounts. So easy!
