Strawberry Banana Yogurt

I don’t know about your kid, but mine loves yogurt! I used to buy the Chobani Kids yogurt, which cost entirely too much money at least every other week for my son. Then it hit me, why am I buying this overpriced shit, when I can just make my own flavored yogurt for way less money? 

When you are buying the big brand flavored yogurt, you are just paying for the name. It hardly packs it's intended nutritional value. They are filled with artificial flavoring, colors, and sweeteners.

The great thing about making your yogurt at home, is that you control the ingredients. You will see that my recipe is super simple and easier than you think! 

I hope I didn't lose you, the fun is starting now!

-Ingredients-

  • 32oz container of non fat plain unsweetened yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 cup of almond milk (if you do not drink almond milk, you can use whatever milk you would like)
  • 1/2 cup bananas 
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • Blender or food processor
  • Reusable food pouches (if you don't have them you can use mason jars to store the yogurt)

 *I used frozen strawberries and bananas as I always have this in my freezer for smoothies (i’ll have some recipes for you and your kiddos to try soon) but feel free to use fresh strawberries and bananas*

-Directions-

Place Yogurt, honey, and fruit in your mixer and blend. Depending on the size of your blender you may have to do this in 2 batches. Once the yogurt, fruit and honey are mixed together, add a small amount of milk and blend. Keep adding the milk little by little until your desired consistency is reached.

Keep in mind that you do not want your yogurt to be too thick if you are placing it in pouches for your little one. 

My son does not have a lot of sugar so the 1 teaspoon of honey is good for him, however if you like it sweeter, you can add more honey or even some sugar if you would like.

Once the yogurt is blended and at the consistency you would like, you're done!

Thats it! Pour the yogurt into your pouches and/or mason jars and place in the fridge for storage!

The pouches I have were purchased from Amazon. Click Here to check them out!

*Pro Tip*

Turn your yogurt into Frozen Yogurt Pops! I found Ice Pop Molds on sale at Target. Click Here to check them out.

Simply take the yogurt you just made, finely chop your fruit and add to the molds. Freeze overnight. The next day have your Kiddo Turn Up with some yogurt pops!
