My kids love the Danimals brand drinkable yogurts, but they are such small servings and quite expensive. I make my own drinkable yogurt in a glass or plastic drink shaker.

Combine 2 cups of any yogurt (blended, fat free, sugar free, any kind!) with enough milk to smooth it out and shake a few times. This will serve 3-4. Add more milk to get desired consistency. Serve or store in refrigerator.

I put this on the table and the kids love to see what kind of "Danimal" I've made.

To pack for a lunch, use a sturdy plastic beverage container, or save those single-serve chocolate milk bottles with lids, run thru dishwasher, and serve in those.


Finally, here's a super hint: You can freeze this drinkable yogurt in ice cube trays. Add a toothpick and you have a yummy popsicle or fun cubes to use in milk or more yogurt drinks or shakes. Enjoy!

I basically did the same thing when I was tired of spending so much on the "Danimals". I saw once in the dairy case a big bottle of drinkable yogurt. I looked on the back ingredients label. I saw that the only ingredients were: Yogurt, Skim Milk, & corn syrup. I wanted to make my kids a single serving and came up with this recipe.

Take a 1 cup size yogurt (favorite flavor of course)

emptied into a cup.

Pour milk into emptied yogurt container then pour into the same cup. (No need to measure or get anything else dirty to be washed, just use the same cup from the yogurt)

I add a little bit of sugar maybe 1-2tsps. to make it a little sweet. When you add the milk it dilutes the sweetness of the yogurt and adding the sugar just brings back the flavor a bit. Then stir briskly to incorporate the ingredients. You can add less milk to make it thicker but the above way is more drinkable and not chewable :)

My kids love this and when we go to store they like to pick out their favorite flavors for this cool "smoothie" type drink. With just this one drink they get 2 full servings of dairy WOW!! in one shot.

Try it... it will save money

I did the same thing! I buy the inexpensive light yogurt from Walmart. I add about 1 1/2 cups of skim milk. Mix well and viola! I put it in a 12oz recycled juice bottle and away I go. Sometimes I put it in the freezer until slushie. I could never eat yogurt because I couldn't get past the smell. With these drinks, I don't have a problem and I'm getting the calcium I need!

I've been making my own drinkable yogurts now, for several years. I'd much rather drink them than to sit and eat 'em. There are times when I want a smoothie, then I use the blender & use milk, yogurt, frozen fruit chunks & maybe some extract, very seldom any sweetener. But when I don't want to take the time for a smoothie, like some morning that I'm running late. I just use 1 to 1 1/2 cups of skim milk to 1 cup of yogurt (preferably Blue Bunny Lite 85 (it's fat free & no sugar added, but has Splenda). Just mix that and voila', instant breakfast!! This a.m. I had the Blue Bunny Lite 85 Peach flavor, wow!! lots of chunks of peaches, I'd not tried this variety before.

Recently, I saw a lady in Walmart demonstrating the new drinkable Blue Bunny beverages. When I told her that I make my own, she seemed surprised and asked how I did it. She liked the part about me using the Blue Bunny brand.

Did I miss anyone being excited over the fact that the acidolphylus in yogurt is PROBIOTIC? This is

certainly so beneficial to our systems after we have bombarded ourselves with nibbles and bits of everything from fried grease to forty flavors of near battery acid in what is frequently called "all natural"

snacks, and "food", cool aid for the dumbing down of America, they hope....etc., surely you aren't one of these who have done/do this? :) LOL Eating or

drinking yogurt helps to balance out the damaged and to replace the destroyed flora and fauna usually found in our intestines and mucous membranes which fights invasion from what shouldn't be there.

I'm as guilty as anyone of this. A quick swallow, a

single bite, a small handful instead of a bowl or bagful, a risk here/a risk there, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO THAT LONG LIST OF CHEMICALS WE



THEM. I still use "very little of artificial sweetener", and rationalize that "I haven't touched that in so long", and "this never hurt me before". However,

I must come to grips with the fact that it only takes

the 10% of poison in the sugared RAT POISON to KILL-l-l-l-l-l a human. That's only 1/10 th of a whole

bite! Folks, had this not almost happened to both me and to my friend, I would not take it so SERIOUSLY. Although PROBIOTICS is not a cure-all

it truly HELPS to repair the hidden damage we cause

our body. And the best part is that it is NOT ANTI-

BIOTICS but yummy enough to eat often.

CURIOSITY: I know folks who had no idea that the Antibiotics prescribed by their "trusted medical doctor" for LONGTERM AND DAILY USE would cause them to eventually develop a RESISTANCE to the antibiotics, thereby

becoming of no further value in helping their body to

combat whatever the doctor claimed she needed the antibiotic for in the FIRST PLACE.

QUESTION: I'm wondering if our drinking the PROBIOTICS on a daily basis is able to OVER build our flora and fauna and cause still another problem,


making them of little or no further value when we might need them the most?

OPINION: Moderation in all things is one of the best courses of action. Although I am not able to purchase yogurt nor milk in abundance I am inclined

to consume yogurt in moderation, and recommend to others the moderation of consumption until we know the LONG TERM EFFECTS of doing so. Better safe than sorry.

I was given Diethystilbestrol while pregnant with my SECOND child, who was a male, thank GOD. Although a drug/chemical, nothing was known about the long term effects of taking it until much later and hundreds of thousands of little girls who developed uterine cancer as a results.

Drugs comes to mind, but again, ANYTHING on a regular basis not taken in moderation is suspecious. I LOVE yogurt and am inclined to consume it like ice cream, but I am MUCH more cautious with things like that which are known to alter serious parts of the body, even if thought at first to be only GOOD and BENEFICIAL. It's been around since Adam and Eve began making cheese, I suppose, lol, but it is a MILK BY PRODUCT and now even ORGANIC milk, which I must take, is being scrutinized.

Humans are the only MAMMALS on earth who still drink milk as adults. It is questionable, especially as to how one can tell if it is TRULY Organic since the cows eat the grass that often contains acid rain from whatever is blown out of the jets overhead, Strontium 90 from nuclear testings drift, etc.

I'm hardly a purist, but I'm taking it slower with soy and yogurt products! God bless you.

Thank you so much. While we were away we came across the yobaby brand and my daughter fell in love, but it is way to expensive to give it to her all the time, but now I can buy the big tubs of yobaby and make my own. I did this a few minutes ago and she couldn't tell the difference!
