Drinkable Yogurt Meal Prep

Today’s post is being sponsored by California Milk.  Check out the remarkable ways California Milk is helping hurricane victims!

 
My kids love those store-bought drinkable yogurts.   But whenever I buy them, they are gone in one day.    I thought it would be fun to make our drinkable yogurts and get creative with the flavors.
But before I get too deep into drinkable yogurts,  I want to talk about this fantastic program that California Milk has had going on right now.   Because  #SealsForGood is such a great idea!
I used Real California Milk Yogurt to make these DIY drinkable yogurts.   The first year after I graduated from college, I lived with my parents while I worked.   This helped me transition into the Real World.   My mom always kept a bunch of store-bought drinkable yogurt smoothies in the fridge, and I loved grabbing one for breakfast on my way to work.
My kids now love them too.  But I don’t get them often, because they’re so expensive.  I loved getting just a few big containers of plain yogurt and making my drinkable yogurts I love this because people can make it the way they like it.

I created five different flavors and sweetened mine ever so slightly using maple syrup.   You can sweeten yours with whatever you like, or just let the fruit sweeten your yogurt.   I made my drinkable yogurts using mason jars.  You can get jar lids that fit a straw, like in the photo below, or untwist the cap and have at it.
I made 5 of our favorite flavors.   You can make any flavor you like.   Below are my recipes
Strawberry Drinkable Yogurt – Makes 2-3 servings 
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
One tablespoon maple syrup, honey or sugar
Five strawberries
Peach Drinkable Yogurt Makes 2-3 servings 
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 of a peach or more
1/2 pure vanilla extract
One tablespoon sweetener
Pineapple Drinkable Yogurt Makes 2-3 servings
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of milk
1/3 cup of pineapple
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
One tablespoon sweetener
Key-Lime Drinkable Yogurt Makes 2-3 servings
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup of milk
juice from 1 key lime or one regular-sized lime
1/2 cup of spinach (  for color and added nutrition)
One tablespoon sweetener
Apple Drinkable Yogurt  ( makes 2-3 servings)
1 cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
One tablespoon sweetener
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Method:   For each flavor, place the ingredients into a blender, and blend until smooth.  Store in a mason jar or other container.  Keep in the fridge until you are ready to enjoy them.
 I love these drinkable yogurts and so do my kids!  They got so excited this weekend when I was in the kitchen making these for our week!   If you’re looking to create more flavors, think of your favorite smoothie- and go from there!  The possibilities are endless!
