In order to keep grocery cost down most of our cooking is done using in-season ingredients so when fall comes around I tend to get a little carried away with the autumn veggies, mainly sweet potatoes.
Having to come up with a way to use them all up without wearing out my kiddos’ tastes buds was a fun little task.
Since the babies are already getting those healthy probiotic benefits from eating our plain homemade yogurt I don’t feel guilty about adding a good amount of sweets to it to make it tasty for them because it is still better than the store bought brands.
The kids yogurt brands from the store might as well be advertised as a spoon full of sugar with a hint of yogurt.
Plus, their taste buds are still developing so as time goes on I just put less sweet stuff until eventually they want just the Greek yogurt with a few berries mixed in.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN GREEK YOGURT AND REGULAR?
Greek yogurt and regular yogurt are made using the same ingredients but Greek yogurt is thicker because more of the whey has been strained off.
(If you strain the yogurt long enough then you can even turn it into cream cheese.)
WHY NOT JUST USE MILK?
The probiotics in yogurt are what make this sweet treat HEALTHY!
DO I NEED TO USE HOMEMADE YOGURT?
No, I just prefer to make ours using homemade yogurt because its cheaper but store bought regular yogurt is fine to use also.
