Monthly Food Focus

April 

Our April Food Focus is  Yogurt

What                   

Yogurt is made from milk that has been fermented with bacteria. Different varieties of yogurt are produced by starting with different types of milk (low fat, whole, or non-dairy milks). Flavored yogurts are made by adding sweeteners and flavors. Greek yogurt, Labneh or yogurt cheese has been strained to produce a thicker, more nutrient dense yogurt.

Which                 

All types of yogurt including Greek.

Why                    

Yogurt is a balanced source of calcium and protein. This nutrient dense Superfood contains active cultures that help keep the digestive system balanced.

How                     

Greek yogurt has a thick smooth creamy consistency which makes it a great substitution for sour cream, heavy cream, mayonnaise and mascarpone.

  • Flavor plain yogurts to use as dips or spreads.
  • Add sweet or savory smoothies
  • Yogurt parfaits/bowls with seasonal fruits and nuts
  • Creamy salad dressing
