Lets Talk about Yogurt- Yes Yogurt

Months ago my wife started making these yogurt “Thingies” which were awesome and really really good for you.  Last night I asked her if we could go to the store, get the ingredients and make a few for the week.  At the end of the day these things are extremely tasty, good for you and frankly extremely easy to make.  When I think about these little yogurt goodnesses it reminds me once again how much we like convenience yet making these takes so little time. Additionally, there is less impact on the environment because we are not throwing away a ton of little yogurt containers, lids and so on.  Today I’m going to give you the basics of a recipe and I’m sure you can modify it to your liking.  Additionally I’ll give you some of the materials used to store the goodies in the fridge.  As I get more into making these yumdigities myself I’ll add some additional recipes as I experiment a bit more with additional ingredients. I’ll also take some more inviting pictures.  Right now I’m just using my Phone’s camera.

We’ll call this Blueberry Goodness.

  1. 1/3 cup skim milk
  2. 1/4 cup of Greek Yogurt
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoon of chiaseeds
  4. 1/4 cup of Blueberries
  5. 2 teaspoons of maple syrup
  6. 1/4 cup of rolled oats.
  7. 1/2 cup Mason Jar


In the mason jar add all the ingredients and shake very well.  Note before you start shaking all those ingredients together…..well….lets do the right thing and put that Mason Jar lid back on so you don’t destroy your kitchen. After you have shaken all the ingredients together place the mason jar in the fridge.  These typically stay fresh for 2 – 3 days and you can easily make 6 of them in about 10 minutes.  They taste great and are super good for you.

About Adventures in the Burbs (72 Articles)
I'm now considered a survivor. A survivor of what you may ask? For my entire life I have been a walking time bomb due to a visitor embedded in my brain called an AVM, or an Arteriovenous Malformation. I never actually knew I had it. My story of survival is so improbably and spectacular that it is worthy of an entire book in itself. I may have a post in here somewhere on my blog that covers it. In the end I’ve survived a brain hemorrhage, brain surgery and I’ve been left with Epilepsy and Left Side Neglect. Believe it or not, Left Side Neglect has been nothing less than a fascinating experience although I don’t recommend it for the feeble or weak minded. In the end that time bomb exploded yet I’m still here to put my adventures up on this blog and I will never let my survivor experience hold me back from life. Although I’m now considered a “Survivor”, throughout life I have been many things and it seems I have assumed many different identities along the way. For me life has been a zigzagging adventure woven with change and that change has always been good. I’m truly blessed as my life has been nothing short of amazing and my cup has always been overflowing even in the worst of times. I’ve had a good family, good friends, excellent mentors along the way and an amazing wife. Wonder if she will actually ever read this?? I’ve been a musician, a dishwasher, a pizza maker, a break-dancer, a skateboarder, a long haired metal head, a United States Marine, a husband, a father to many, a technologist, a college student, an adventure racer, a businessman, a manager, a leader, a crisis manager, a Harley Davidson enthusiast, a wannabe bourbon connoisseur, an amateur RV’er, an amateur blogger, an amateur writer, an amateur photographer, a thinker, a doer, a traveler, a wannabe digital nomad, an adventurer, and a remote worker. So as you can see I’ve maintained just a few identities….but what’s in an identity anyway. I know my identity as a “survivor” will not sum up my existence nor define me as a person. My name is Will and I am all of those identities listed above and then some. Hopefully you will join me on my journey. Do take Care, Will
