I always have two yoghurts on the go in my fridge – Natural for myself & for coking & then Vanilla for the kids. If you haven’t done so already, check out my Make Your Own Yoghurt post.
The most important thing to do first though, is always take 3 tablespoons of yoghurt for your next starter, before you add your flavouring.
Follow these directions to flavour your natural yoghurt. I make Vanilla yoghurt for the kids, which they love on it’s own. I’ll then often add to that fresh fruit, passionfruit or make my own berry coulis in my Thermomix (see below).
Add to 1 quantity (1L) of Natural Yoghurt;
60g caster sugar
10g vanilla bean paste
10g vanilla extract
Stir ingredients well into yoghurt & refrigerate for at least 3 hours before serving.
200g fresh or frozen raspberries or mixed berries
100g caster sugar
20g freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
1) Place all ingredients into TM bowl, cook 6 minutes/90 degrees/speed 4.
2) If you prefer a smoother coulis, puree 10 seconds/speed 8 after cooking.
Serve coulis once cooled & store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.
