The prairies encompass everything I love. The quiet, distant sounds that calm; the open air that inspires; the smells that bring comfort, and the sunshine that warms me. My Prairie Story is about sharing all the good things that have been instilled in me growing up and living on the prairies - my new and old family recipes, nurturing my homegrown garden, making my house a home, getting away to our cabin at the lake, and just keeping up with life! ~ Alison Zulyniak
I'm not a fan of yogurt. Never have been. It's the texture, the fake fruit taste, and it's especially disgusting when there is aspartame added. Yuk. However, I have found a way that I actually can eat it... and like it ...actually love it!
Here are the 3 simple steps to the creamiest, yummiest yogurt:
1) Strain yogurt
2) Drizzle in honey
3) Add fruit
First, strain the yogurt (plain, 0% fat). Yes. Strain. I think I saw the Barefoot Contessa do this once. It takes out all the water and leaves you with a rich, creamy yogurt, perfect to add other yummy things to.
Use a coffee filter, cheese cloth, or a good quality paper towel and let it strain overnight in the fridge.
You'll be amazed at how much water will drip out. From what started as 750g of yogurt, I got 1 1/2 cups of water.
Then add liquid honey to taste. I love using local honey. You can mix the honey right in the yogurt or drizzle it on top. Lastly, add your bananas, strawberries, or any fruit, even jam!
Of course topping with granola is super good too!
