I love the taste of yogurt and have become especially fond of drinkable yogurt. On my mornings that I have childcare I’m known to forget to eat breakfast and being diabetic, that’s a bad idea. I’ve gotten so I started drinking these Chobani drinkable yogurts. I love them but they are expensive. Too expensive for me to be eating on a regular basis…and the sugar content is a little high.
The other day I went to get one out of the refrigerator and didn’t have any left. Ugh. I saw that I had yogurt in the refrigerator and that’s when it hit me…why not make one with the yogurt I had in the refrigerator. I had a raspberry yogurt and thought I’d simply add milk and mix it up but then I remembered I had a half banana that was going bad so why not throw that in?
I grabbed my immersion blender and mixed it all up adding milk to get to the right thickness.
It was love at first taste.
Well now that I have this in my head, I’m determined to try to make it even cheaper….and more convenient as the reason I like the drinkable yogurt is that I can drink it on the go. I want to make them in advance. So the current plan is to make some homemade yogurt in the Instant Pot and work with it to make it drinkable storing it in pint jars in the refrigerator. I’m a little afraid that I created a monster with this. I’m guessing I’ll be all gung-ho about it and concentrated on it until I get it right. I can be a little crazy like that.
Typically I don’t tell you about any of this until I have it mastered but I’m hoping someone might have a tried and true yogurt recipe for the Instant Pot (I’ve made it a couple times but wasn’t completely sold on it) or have a great recipe for drinkable yogurt. Share your advice please….
