Greek Yogurt the way Grandma used to make

| May 31, 2013 | 4 Comments

With so much emphasis on eating higher protein foods, Greek yogurt has achieved significant popularity in North America in the last few years. Every celebrity doctor and trainer is constantly highlighting the benefits of incorporating Greek yogurt into our diets. I’m all for it. Spread the word,  we Greeks have known it all along however I am perplexed every time I see the Oikos commercial explaining how the word oikos means home in Greek (Oikos is a Greek-style yogurt sold by Danone). No it doesn’t. Oikos is an Ancient Greek word, I’ve never used it in my life, but I digress. In any case, Oikos is my favourite of the store-bought Greek yogurts available in Canada. Fage, another brand, is far superior in my opinion but only available in the United States. When I have a yen for the good stuff however, I either casually mention to my parents or my in-laws how “wouldn’t it be nice if we had some fresh yogurt … it’s been so long ….” and then it miraculously appears on my next visit or I head out to the grocery store, buy some homogenized milk (since I don’t have any goats in my backyard), pull out the pot and get started on making yogurt the way Greek grandmas have made for hundreds of years! Try it. It’s very inexpensive, healthy, and delicious to boot. It is great for breakfast or a healthy snack during the day but best served on a nice hot day, in a chic cafe by the beach with the warm breeze of the Mediterranean sea washing over you. Can you sense my longing to go back???

    I love homemade yogurt but I do it the cheater/high-tech way and use a yogurt maker. Nothing beats the taste of making your own!
