We know that kids are into yogurt. Noah sure seems to love it. I like it too but I worry about sugar, preservatives and non-organic dairy products. It also costs a lot of money.
That's where my new toy comes in. I have wanted a yogurt maker for a while, but there was this whole cost/benefit thing going on in my head. Yesterday I was placing an order on Amazon for some new card scanners for work, and I saw that this yogurt machine was 40% off. I figure it's worth a $15 gamble to see if I can crank out some low-fat organic yogurt for the family. I'm really excited about making some flavors that you don't get at the grocery store - almond avocado, EVOO, chocolate-orange, Meyer lemon etc., but I think Noah will stick with fruit. The reviews also said you could freeze this for frozen yogurt, but I'm not getting my hopes up. If I can replace some of our commerical consumption with something nutritious and organic, I'm happy.
