I love me some good cheese, ice cream, and sour cream, but does that mean I should eat it? Not all the time. Do I eat it on occasion? Yup.
I crave some food from my past (read: pre-paleo days) that I no longer can eat. Yogurt is one of those things. I can (and do) make dairy-free ice cream at home, I can make ghee and still enjoy that buttery flavor, but yogurt is another story. I don’t want to spend a small fortune on probiotics and have to wait 2 days to make the darn stuff myself. I also don’t want to eat the dairy-free stuff from the store because they have all sorts of unnecessary ingredients like preservatives, gums, and carrageenan. Gross.
One day, after a particularly grueling workout (Filthy Fifty anybody?), I was craving a strawberry milkshake. So naturally, I attempted to make one on the fly when we got home. Turns out, my on-the-fly version of a milkshake was awfully close to yogurt instead. With a few tweaks, I had myself a pretty good instant whipped yogurt. Color me thrilled!
You could even change it up with different frozen fruits and make any flavor of yogurt you want. I keep meaning to do that, but strawberries are pretty much the standard in my freezer right now, but when I branch out, I’m making more yogurt flavors, for sure.
