Homemade Blueberry YogurtJump to recipe
Do you love Berry Yogurt, and yet cringe every time you have to shell out a big sum, just for yogurt? Your search ends here. Make easy Berry Yogurt at home at half the price, and enjoy it everyday.
Yogurt/ Curd is set by introducing good Lactic acid bacteria( which we get from an older stock or a starter). The proteins coagulate and set as curd. Curd is highly beneficial for gut health. In the Indian culture, having a spoon of Dahi- Cheeni ( curd and sugar), before setting out on any important work is considered auspicious.
Blueberry health benefits- Blueberries get their colour due to flavanoids called anthocyanins. This is what makes Blueberries rich in antioxidants. Blueberries contain Iron and Phosphorus, which makes them good for bones. These berries are rich in Vitamin C, hence good for skin, and immunity. Blueberries are helpful in maintaining BP levels.
Difference between Honemade curd and Probiotic curd– to begin with, it is cheaper than store bought yogurt or probiotic yogurt. You can may low fat yogurt at home, whereas store bought ones are not necessarily low far.
Store-bought Probiotic yogurt is higher in protein, and that’s why it is sought by weight watchers and gym enthusiasts. Probiotic yogurt uses specific cultures of bacteria to get that consistency, and taste.
Conclusion, for this recipe you can either make homemade yogurt and make the recipe from scratch, like I have done, or can buy store bought Probiotic yogurt, add the Blueberry compote and proceed with the recipe.
Where to use the Blueberry Yogurt- it can be enjoyed as is, as a low fat ( incase you plan to use low fat milk to set curd) low sugar dessert( exactly why I like homemade, because you can control the sugar, too). You can top the Berry yogurt over Muesli, you can even dip your Roti’s or Paratha in them.
