All this Nectarine and Blackberry Yogurt is is some healthy natural yogurt that is strained for 24 hours until it is really thick and then loosened with fruit puree. Unless the bowl your sieve is sitting in is particularly deep then you might need to pour out the excess liquid before you go to bed. This is so the sieve isn’t sitting in the water as that will stop the straining.
The great thing about this is that it is easy to mix it up. If you are not keen on nectarines or blackberries you can use whatever fruit you like, or whatever is in season! If you’d fancy some strawberries, try blitzing them with a little bit of lemon juice as that really brings out their flavour. Similarly raspberries and kiwis love lime juice. If you’d prefer something a little bit more subtle then try mixing the seeds of a vanilla pod or half a teaspoon of vanilla extract into some coconut water and using that to loosen the strained yogurt. Try mixing a teaspoon of cocoa powder (or the even healthier raw cacao powder) with the juice and zest of an orange for something that will feel more desserty. Ripe banana mashed with a little maple syrup with pecans?
Whatever you choose, you can try to strain the puree if you like but I’d leave it. It will be that little bit healthier with the dietary fibre still in there.
