could be easier for adding a small amount of healthy sweetness
and some calcium to your diet as an after dinner dessert.
cups plain unflavored low-fat yogurt
teaspoon instant coffee granules
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
cup frozen raspberries, thawed
in the day or the night before, place the yogurt into a colander
lined with cheese cloth. Place over a bowl or sauce pan and place
into the refrig to permit the whey to drain off of the yogurt.
As an alternative method, I finally found a use for my old Melitta
coffee maker. I placed the yogurt into the top portion lined with
a coffee filter. I then placed filter onto the coffee pot, placing
the entire unit into the refrig to let the yogurt drain about
3-4 hours. You will be left with approximately 1-1/3 cup yogurt
cheese, which will be fairly firm, almost like ricotta cheese.
a hand wisk, mix the coffee granules and maple syrup into the
yogurt cheese. Place into small serving bowls. Put into the refrig
until serving,then top with a spoonful of thawed berries. Makes
3-4 small servings. Just the right size for a bit of after dinner
an interesting mix of flavors", said my older son.. That
could have meant many things, but I then noticed both my son and
husband first using their spoon and then their fingers to get
every bit of yogurt from their bowls :-) I took that to mean the
recipe passed the "family approval test" before posting
a recipe on my web site! Experiment with various flavors and fruit.
throw out the liquid whey that drained from the yogurt. I add
a couple of tablespoons to my daily soyshake for extra protein.
In addition, use it for liquid in pancakes, waffles, quick breads,
or muffins. It will give a nice zing, just like using buttermilk.)
