How to Make Flavored Yogurt and Quick Smoothies

Do you ever get inspired to eat healthy, shop healthy and then just try to make everything possible from certain beautiful foods you find at the grocery store or market?

Recently I just wanted to use the plethora of strawberries and blueberries I bought on a whim at Costco, and use up my tart plain homemade yogurt in the fridge. Most importantly, I am committed to avoiding foods with high fructose corn syrup in them. Did you know that many store-bought yogurts have contain HFCS? (Not to mention gelatin from very questionable sources).

Homemade Flavored Yogurt or Fruit Smoothie

Makes 1 large glass (smoothie) or 2 small servings of yogurt

Ingredients

1 cup frozen organic or pesticide-free strawberries

1/2 cup organic or pesticide-free blueberries

1 cups plain, whole-milk yogurt

2 tablespoons honey or organic raw cane sugar

2 tablespoons whole milk or orange juice (or for smoothie only)

Preparation for the Flavored Yogurt

To a blender, combine all ingredients except the milk or orange juice.

Blend for about 30 seconds or until the yogurt reaches the desired consistency and the fruit is thoroughly incorporated.

That’s it. It’s as simple as that. It’s easy to eat, quick to make, super healthy and halal.

  1. Delicious! thanks for the tip about the fruit taste becoming more “fruity” in the fridge.

    Do you have a recipe for making your own yogurt without a machine, the old fashioned way? I’ve done it a few times, with varying degrees of success and would like a tried and true method.

  2. This sounds SO yummy and refreshing. I will be sure try it:)

  3. is this the same yogurt smoothie i had at your house last weekend? i’m in love with it! and you wonder why i’m ‘opportunistic’! heheh

  4. Wonderful sounding smoothie! I like the tip about letting it sit in the fridge. I had no idea the it would become more fruity.

  5. Great site…yummy food!
    Where ever good food and good friends are, I’ll be there :)

  6. Salaam Alaikum Yvonne thanks for the tip!!!!

  7. So refreshing and blueberries are so healthy for you. For a breakfast-like smoothie, I add oatmeal to a regular fruit smoothie. Check at http://www.phamfatale.com/id_131/title_Blueberry-Maple-Oatmeal-Smoothie/
