I've been having fun making the babies' plain yogurt more exciting. My favorite yogurt for them is Wallaby Organic Whole Milk Greek Yogurt but I also like Maple Hill Creamery Greek Yogurt. Baby A is not a huge fan of plain yogurt, and honestly, I can't blame her. The only way I eat plain yogurt is in a smoothie because I think it tastes like I'm eating sour cream.I've been jazzing up our yogurt in a lot of different ways by mixing it with fruits and veggies in my Vitamix. It's basically making a smoothie without the juice. This is our favorite green yogurt:
My measurements aren't exact so this recipe is an approximation:
1 cup whole milk Greek yogurt
1 big handful of baby spinach
1/2 cup frozen mango
Blend everything together.
You can mix and match any fruits and veggies to make new flavors. We also like strawberry papaya and spinach-peach-blueberry. You can easily make fruit and veggie yogurt into a smoothie by adding water, juice, or green/herbal iced tea (I'd stick with water if it's for the babies)!
