My favorite part about being a Shelf Reliance Independent Consultant is experimenting with the food. Today, I made frozen yogurt using my food storage! And, it didn’t take any time at all. Shelf Reliance sells freeze dried yogurt bites in seven different flavors: vanilla, strawberry, cherry, orange, pomegranate, passion fruit, and blueberry. And they’re on sale this month. Let me know if you’re interested in buying some.
They’re absolutely wonderful to snack on in their freeze dried state, but if just add a little water, you’ve got yogurt! One of the best things about the freeze dried yogurt bites is that the probiotics go dormant when they are frozen, and wake back up when you rehydrate them, which includes just eating them as is.
To make the frozen yogurt, pick your favorite flavor, and add 2 ½ tablespoons of water per cup of yogurt bites. Let them rehydrate for about 5-10 minutes, and then mix. If you think there are still too many yogurt bites that didn’t rehydrate, add more water in ½-1 tablespoon increments until you are satisfied, but be careful not to add too much water, or you’ll have really thin yogurt. At this point, not all of the yogurt bites need to be rehydrated, the mixture can be a little lumpy still. Chill the mixture for about 30 minutes. When that’s done, mix it again to get rid of all the lumps. Then follow the instructions on your ice cream maker, and you’ll have a great treat straight from your food storage!
I’ve found that two cups of yogurt bites and 5 tablespoons of water make the perfect amount for one person. Try adding some freeze dried berries while you’re at it.
