Did I mention that the best yogurt I have ever had is my own blueberry yogurt? Well, the raspberry yogurt here is equally good if not better.
I love making yogurt at home so that I can have as much berry sauce/jam as I want. The best part is that no additives are added! We all know yogurt is really great for digestion and health. So we should start asking “got yogurt”?
4 cups of whole milk
1 pack plain Greek yogurt (172g)
2 cups frozen raspberries
1/3 to 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 to 3 tablespoon blueberries
1 to 2 tablespoon water
I have posted homemade yogurt before. For more detailed information: http://www.yankitchen.com/blog/homemade-blueberry-yogurt
Microwave the milk on high until it boils. It might take 6 to 8 minutes give or take depending on the microwave oven.
When the milk cools down, remove the milk skin on top.
Empty the plain Greek yogurt to a large clean bowl; whisk until it becomes smooth and runny.
Gradually add milk while whisking.
Distribute evenly into the glass jars that come with yogurt maker. Or you can use any small glass jars as long as they can fit in the yogurt maker.
over with lids and place them in the yogurt maker (buy from AMAZON). Turn it on. In 5 to 7 hours, transfer them to refrigerator to settle down overnight. You will have 7 jars of tasty plain yogurt the next day.
Leave them in the yogurt maker longer if you prefer firmer yogurt texture.
When the yogurt maker is doing its job, we can make raspberry sauce.
Combine raspberries, blueberries, water, brown sugar and lemon juice in a small pot; heat over medium high heat until it boils. Reduce the heat to medium low; cook until the sauce thickens up; stir from time to time to prevent burning on the bottom.
Raspberries will lose their beautiful bright red color once cooked for a certain amount of time. so I add blueberries to make the color more vibrant. Just a couple tablespoons of blueberries will do the job. Don’t add too much, otherwise it is going to be dark red or purple instead of red.
Remove the raspberry sauce from heat. Allow it to cool down before transfer to a mason jar. Seal the jar and store in the refrigerator. It should be able to last for a week.
Add one layer of raspberry sauce to a glass bowl or jar, add one layer of yogurt, and repeat it again. Sprinkle on top with fresh raspberries and powder sugar.
Isn’t it pretty?
