No, Joe, you're not the only one. I'm an old hippie too, though I was always more into bread-baking than yogurt-making. (But gimme a break, please: even hippies in the South didn't even discover yogurt...or bagels for that matter...until deep into the latter half of the twentieth century.)

I still love to bake bread (whole wheat, of course), and I DO eat store-bought yogurt, but only the plain kind. Yummy with fresh fruit stirred in.

littlek, I don't bake with yogurt (in recipes I've tried, it has a tendency to separate when heated, giving off all that excess moisture into the product), but it's wonderful in salad dressings and cool desserts...especially if you drain it a few hours in a coffee filter to make yogurt cheese.

Hi y'all hiyall - We've made a good yogurt cake - sort of a coffee cake thing with some succes. Just not the banana bread. Alas. Anyway, I eat yogurt with live bacteria, low or non-fat, but with flavors. I like plain with honey too. And smoothies! I blend yogurt with frozen fruit and almond milk (no ice). Yummmmmmyyyy....

I love yogurt. It's wonderful. Just wonderful. Scrumptitiliumptious. Yummy in my tummy.

But I like smooth foods for some reason, like pudding. I wonder, if I mixed yogurt and pudding together, what would happen...

I could pour the mixture over some flan.

psssssst, on the banana bread

you really need to watch the liquid/dry ingredient balance - among other things

littlek, get your roomie to add the weight of the fluids up - and the dry ingredients as well

the balance has to remain the same - so if you're adding yogurt - some other liquid has to decrease

in terms of the bananas, they should be almost liquid before being used for banana bread/waffles/whatever - if they're still solid, they're not going to blend properly, and go mushy while baking, which will effect the texture of the bread/cake/muffins

baking is more of a science than some other cooking related enterprises

I try to eat yoghurt on a regular basis (although that doesn't seem to be working). I think it's really yummy. It's extra nice with fresh strawberries. Hmmmm.

ehbeth is right about the measuring and the almost liquid bananas.

If you can't beat them with a spoon they are still too ripe......

A true story.


When I was working (!!!, they gave me all keys!) in prison, we got one day some kind of uproar, with became worse during the week:

the kitchen had bought to many plain yoghurts, so the inmates (1/3 lifelong, the other 4 years+, 900 alltogether) got it as dessert forlunch and supper every.
Some started to throw them in the yard, others joined ... aiming always at those, who were working there, doing sports etc.
Besides, it was summer, the stuff begun to smell after a short time.

So they decided, this was a social problem and thus a test for me as newbie.
Along with a sponsored sport program, a rather wellknown body-builder (not from Austria!) gave lessons inside the prison.
I asked to 'promote' yoghurt as the ultimative muscle-building-drug.

The other day, we get a petitition by the inmate's council to suport with a sufficient amount of yoghurt.




And I got an extra dinner from the chef Laughing

love yoghurt and have eaten it daily for quite a few years. a store owned by a dutch family first sold it locally. i only like plain yoghurt (with some fresh or frozen fruit added). the other stipulation i have is that it must be pure, no pectin or cornstarch added. we usally buy BALCAN STYLE yoghurt which has a somewhat higher milkfat content (5 %) and has a nice tangy/acidic taste. hbg

I prefer the local(ish) 'organic' or 'natural' yogurts. My favorite brand is Stoneyfield Farms.

I really love Dannon's new Carb Control (fat-free, sugar-free) yogurt. Especially the vanilla flavor, with fresh fruit added. The peach flavor is really scrumptious, too.

(I swear I cannot tell the difference between sugar and Splenda.)

I've never eaten anything but store-bought yogurt, though. I'm curious to know the difference from homemade.

You can make yogurt from soy milk too. It converts the bean sugar so you don't become gassy from the soy milk.

Also, next time you're in the whole foods market getting yogurt, buy some kefir. It's cultured milk, sweetened with fruit and slightly efferescent. It tastes great, but is a thick liquid, unlike yogurt.

Well, you can certainly buy something what is called 'Kefir' sweetened with fruits, but Kefir is originally of as slightly sour refreshing taste and nothing in it but cultured-milk (with Kefir grains).

I love drinkable yogurt..... kefir is good - especially the raspberry flavor which seems to pair well with the tart plain yogurt flavor.
