Strawberry Yogurt


My second day "Fruits" themed post for the blogging marathon # 9 is this yummy and healthy strawberry yogurt. Check what my fellow marathoners are cooking here.
We love fruit yogurts and I prefer homemade ones over the store bought ones. Obviously the latter ones are loaded with sugar and other artificial, unwanted ingredients while the homemade version needs primarily two ingredients as it should be - the fruit and yogurt.

Ingredients: (2 - 3 servings)
2 cups hung yogurt (I use homemade, fatfree yogurt.)
1 cup strawberries + extra to garnish
Sugar to taste (optional)

Method:
I hung the yogurt and then blended it with fruit since I used yogurt made with skim milk. If the yogurt and fruit are blended directly, the mixture would be runny and you would end up with a  smoothie instead of a fruity yogurt. :)

Note: Use Greek yogurt if you are in a hurry or want to skip step 1.

1. First prepare the hung yogurt. Place the yogurt in a muslin/ thin cotton cloth covered strainer or colander and place a bowl underneath to catch the drips. Keep it in the refrigerator covered for a couple of hours or until a creamy consistency is reached. No need to wait until a solid mass is formed as in shrikhand. If it becomes thicker, add a few drops of milk.
2. Wash the strawberries and remove the stalks. Blend the yogurt and strawberries together. Add sweetener only if needed. Pass the mixture through a strainer and chill if necessary. Garnish with strawberries and serve.
