Making your own yogurt – sounds difficult, right? What is yogurt anyway? Well, that’s beside the point. Today I wanted to show you that homemade yogurt is not as difficult as it sounds!
You can find your favorite plain yogurt, I recommend a Greek yogurt as the process they use to strain it leaves more protein and less carbs, which is fantastic! Typically it’s about 90 calories for a 6oz-8oz serving.
Take one serving of the yogurt and mix in 1 Tbsp. of a reduced- or low-sugar fruit preserve (I LOVE strawberry). Most of the preserves I have found are about 30 calories per Tbsp.
So there you have it: A 120 calorie yogurt that you made yourself for far less than you would buying a single serving yogurt anywhere and you’ll get the benefits of less sugars and carbs and more protein! Could you ask for anything more?
