Mother Nature keeps turning up the thermostat here in Tucson. If someone could distract her, I could try to sneak in and turn it down when she isn’t looking. My husband and I play the “thermostat game”… “Look sweetie, a bright and shiny object!” haha Just kidding, just kidding. Today, I made this cold treat with Bob in mind. He spent a good chunk of the day outside in the warm temperature of 90 degrees. Shew! I knew when he came home, this refreshing treat would be well received. I realize that Fage Greek Yogurt is not a raw product. Normally, I would make a raw yogurt from young Thai coconut meat, but I didn’t have any on hand and this is one of his favorite yogurts, so I went with it. Below I shared a recipe on how to make raw coconut yogurt if interested.
Fage Greek Yogurt is made of 100% natural ingredients, (it is rBGH-free which is an artificial growth hormone) it contains no added sweeteners, thickeners or preservatives and no powdered milk, powdered cream or powdered protein. Just whole milk, cream and cultures go through our unique straining process to create this blissful, low-calorie taste experience. In fact, approximately 4 pounds of raw milk are needed to make just one pound of Fage Total Greek Yogurt.
I had to giggle out loud as I was taking pictures for this post. It is rather challenging as a left-handed person to pipe the yogurt mixture into the pop-up mold blindly with my left-hand while I struggled to hold the camera in my “Awkward” hand. I was trying to remain steady, see in the viewfinder and keep my yogurt pointed in the right direction. Did you know that cameras are built for right-handed people?! It reminded me of when I played baseball. I was one of those odd ducks who would be out in the left field, mitt in left hand… the ball pops in the air (the crowd gasps) Amie Sue runs blindly all over the field because the sun was in her eyes, yea yea, that’s the ticket, the sun was blinding me! The ball was high in the air, silence came over the audience and all you could hear was the whistling of the ball as it sailed through the sky…. I caught it!!! Then had to rip my glove off so I could throw with my left hand too. Never quite learned how to catch with one and throw with the other. Anyway, I got a bit side-tracked there…
I bet you are wondering where in the heck I got those neat push-up pop containers! You can order them here. They are so much fun and add something special to the whole experience. Plus, you can wash and reuse them and I love that idea. You can use any Popsicle mold or even Dixie cups. This will alter how many or how few of them you can make with one batch.
OR if you don’t have probiotic powder..
