Most homemade yogurt recipes do not indicate how to give them flavor. In this note, we will find many options to flavor and make these homemade products more exquisite.
How to Flavor Homemade Yogurts
Yogurt is a very rich food and ideal for diets, since it has very few calories, and therefore is usually present in every meal regime.
In past article, we have learned how to make homemade yogurts with a natural flavor, but now we will go a little further and see how to flavor them.
Because the bacteria forming the product need to be multiplied, the flavors should be placed after the incubation, ie before being taken to the refrigerator after the resting time. Remember to save a portion of the yogurt before flavoring it, for use in the next preparation.
Natural Flavors for Homemade Yogurt
One way of flavoring the yogurts is by placing various elements to convey their flavor evenly over a prolonged period of time.
For example, we can place a bay leaf in each glass, but with the stem sticking out, to be able to remove it before consuming. Likewise, we can put strips of fruit peels, inserted in a toothpick, to be able to remove them without difficulty.
The idea is that when placing these types of herbs or shells inside, the course of the hours will transmit its aroma and flavor, and we will get a yogurt that is still natural, with no artificial additives or artificial additives.
Other options for flavoring yogurt with this method are:
- A slice of onion or scallion (inserted into a toothpick to be removed).
- A piece of celery.
- Peels of apple, lemon or any fruit.
- A sprig of cinnamon (with a tip-off).
- Aromatic herbs such as mint, basil, parsley, marjoram, etc. (Always with the stem out).
“Liquid flavorings, powders or essences assure us a much more intense taste to our homemade yogurt.”
Artificial Flavors for Homemade Yogurt
Another way to flavor homemade yogurt is by using liquid flavorings, powders or essences. These elements are less natural, but they assure us to give a much more intense flavor to the yogurts. We can also use other ingredients to mix, such as seeds of any kind, curry, nutmeg, cocoa or cinnamon powder.
To flavor with these elements, we will place them in each glass, or in the general preparation, not forgetting that when stirring it is possible that the yogurt is cut, but with the course of the hours, it will once again become unified.
Finally, the third method: to flavor a homemade yogurt by means of solid elements. In this case, we will use small pieces of biscuits, cereals, cookies or any ingredient that can be crumbled. We can also use pieces of fruit, although it is possible that the juice of the same is on the surface, having to mix well to integrate.
There are many options we have to flavor yogurts, just think about the flavor we want to give and follow the advice above, depending on whether it is a solid ingredient, liquid, herbs or artificial flavorings.
