I must confess, greek yogurt is at the top of the list. If you've never tried greek yogurt you are missing out. It's creamy, much lower in fat and sugar than regular yogurts and the plain flavor is an easy swap for sour cream. The only downside to this delightful food is the cost- it's usually more expensive than regular yogurt. We just can't have that so I decided to make my own greek yogurt. I saw it on TV somewhere and tried it out last night/this morning.
You start with regular yogurt, any flavor you wish.
|All- natural, plain, and nonfat|
Place the yogurt in a strainer lined with a coffee filter (or paper towels) then place the strainer over a bowl. Let it sit in the fridge overnight. The liquid in the yogurt will drain into the bowl.
|the morning after|
It turns out thick and creamy just like greek yogurt! Make yourself a delicious bowl of yog.
|Yog, banana, strawberry jam, Kashi Go-Lean cereal|
After you assemble the yog bowl, mess it up and enjoy.
Buying regular yogurt and making it greek is a much cheaper way to enjoy the luxury that is greek yogurt. After going greek I bopped around my house cleaning and organizing my room. I also did some of this.
Did you notice the senior research to the left? I thought maybe placing the books so close to the tree would motivate me to spend time working on this project over winter break. And because really, what says Christmas more than Men's Health Magazine and books on agenda setting and cultural trends of individualism?
