I tricked him!

September 12

So, my son is kinda obsessed with yoghurt. Sometimes it becomes flavored yoghurt. Particularly this kind. More specifically, their marionberry flavor. Now, I am not saying Ellenos is bad in any way. I have become their new fan! But here I am making my own yoghurt at home since last four years maybe; it was time I took it a notch higher and make the jelly on top also at home!

I recently got this cookbook after hearing rave reviews about it. I am yet to go past first 10 pages but I wanted to give something a try as quickly as I could. And with a pint of blueberries calling my name, I gave this a try and happy to report the kiddo totally demolished it!

Ellenos inspired yogurt

To make the topping you will need :

  • Approximately 2 handfuls of blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (more or less depending on how sour your berries are)
  • 2 big sprinkles of cinnamon
  • Juice of 1/4 lemon

Put everything in a saucepan on medium to low heat. Keep stirring occasionally until you get to jam like consistency. You can break some blueberries after they soften with a spatula to aid in this jam formation.

Top it on your yogurt and done! Greek yogurt will work well too if you do not have homemade yogurt. On that note, let me know if you would like to know how I make yogurt at home!?

Are there any recipes you tried recently that you just had to share!? Send them this way!

    Hey Maneet,

    We do a similar thing: buy or make plain whole milk yogurt and mix in whichever jar of jam happens to be around. Which is usually blueberry given my Mother’s tendency to make hundreds of jars of it a year. The kiddos go nuts. Healthy yogurt from good milk, lower sugar, and a fraction of the cost.

      I agree! Fraction of cost and knowing what goes inside it! 🙂 Envy your ‘mom-made jam’ stash!
