What's in your yogurt?

Being the parent of a picky toddler, fruits and veggies can sometimes be a difficult thing to incorporate into their diets. For a while, the only food my son would eat for breakfast was yogurt. He really liked flavored yogurt, but when you look at the ingredient statement, you’re usually getting a lot of added ingredients along with the yogurt flavors. For example...


 plain yogurt ingredients. milk, yogurt culturesflavored yogurt ingredients, Milk, Yogurt Cultures, Blueberries, Water, Cane Sugar, Contains 2% or Less: Corn Starch, Natural Flavors, Fruit Pectin, Lemon Juice Concentrate.


One technique we use to get rid of that long list of added ingredients but still get a flavored yogurt that my son will eat is to mix our KOYAH powders into a plain unsweetened yogurt (Ingredients: Pasteurized Milk, Live Active Yogurt Cultures). For example, to a serving of plain unsweetened yogurt, we add a scoop of Organic Banana Powder (which equates to 1/4 cup of banana) and a scoop of Organic Maqui berry powder (which equates to 146 maqui berries). The banana gives it some sweetness, and the maqui provides a nice berry flavor and a burst of purple color. We switch up the flavors typically using different organic fruit powders (like raspberry, blackberry, wild blueberry, dragonfruit) and occasionally sneak in some of the organic veggie powders. Just be careful not to go too heavy on the veggies if you’re dealing with a picky eater like my son :).
