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

Directions—

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.
