Broccoli Yogurt

Samara loves yogurt. She doesn't care what kind it is, she eats them all indiscriminately.

The other day, she was eating Stonyfield Farm Plain yogurt, and I had an idea. She's never tried strawberries before. What if I threw some strawberries and the yogurt in the blender? So I did it!

Needless to say, the strawberry yogurt was a big hit.

I was so pleased, that the next day, I thought: if she likes strawberry yogurt, perhaps I could combine something more obscure with yogurt. Something that kids don't typically like. Something green.

Yes, that's right...broccoli! I decided to combine yogurt and broccoli.

I threw one strawberry in there for good measure.

And here's what the final product looked like:

It was well received! I liked it too!

Maybe I should try spinach yogurt next time?

What steps have you taken to get your kids to eat healthy? Any recipes to share?


  1. Great idea! I noticed though that your yogurt seemed more watery post-blender. What I do for blending things with yogurt is just blend the food (strawberries, for example) and then mix that into the yogurt by hand in a bowl. Something about the blender "deflates" the yogurt, I've noticed. Tahira is soooo picky about her yogurt. She only likes 2 flavors and certain brands of that flavor. So annoying.

  2. That's an excellent point! I observed that today too. Funny you should suggest that! I actually remixed some yogurt by hand in the bowl post-blender. You are so smart, woman!
