Blueberry Lemon Yogurt – a delicious and healthy dessert.
I’ve received quite a few e-mails recently asking for tips on how to get kids to eat natural yoghurt (or yogurt depending on where you are from.) The e-mails all say pretty much the same thing; their children love yoghurts targeted to kids. However, many parents are wanting to make the transition to natural yoghurt, as a healthier alternative.
As I’ve said before, I’m lucky, both my boys love natural yoghurt, especially delicious and creamy Greek yoghurt. However, I have never actually bought kids’ yoghurts and they have only had them a handful of times at other people’s houses. They are therefore not used to the sweetness of them and are more than happy to eat natural yoghurt sweetened with a little vanilla or fruit.
I thought I’d start sharing some of the different ways I sweeten and serve natural yoghurt. Most of the time I use Greek yoghurt and crush some fruit through it. I’ve already shared a mango and lime version and today I’m sharing a delicious blueberry lemon yoghurt. The boys devour this one. If your kids are used to flavoured yoghurt then they may find this a little sour and need a bit more sweetness. You could try adding a little honey or maple syrup to start with and each time you serve it, reduce the amount of chosen sweetener until they are happy to eat it without.
