Naturally Flavored Yogurts and 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).

  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. 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

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