Crockpot yogurt flavors question.

So I ran across a receipe on mom on a mission for crockpot yogurt. It came out fine looks like plain yogurt. Was so very easy. I just made sure to let it set up longer because I had 2% milk not whole.

Any ideas on ways to flavor it. Hubby likes strawberry. I put in some defrosted strawberries from the freezer and some gelatin, was a suggestion I saw.

Any other ideas on how to flavor, better way to flavor? It seems to taste ok but I don't want to eat it, and I know part of that is just being prego.

the link to the receipe if anyone want it is http://momonamission.me/?p=2066

I'd stick with just adding fruit or fruit preserves.  I've also used pure vanilla with a bit of sugar for a plain vanilla.

I eat about 30 containers of cherry yoplait light yogurt a week! That is my basic food staple, I really need to make my own, cherry only. I will have to explore this more, Thanks.

I would mix honey or nutella into before you eat it.

We make our own yogurt, too.  We always mix fresh fruit into it.  A little honey or sugar sweetens it nicely, too.  If fresh isn't in season, we use frozen fruit or preserves.

It is SOOO easy! I didn't think it would be. Put it on at 1, turned it off at 3, at 6 mixed in a box of vanilla pudding and the starter with some of the warm milk, mixed that back in with the rest, checked it this morning. Done.

I didn't even measure the milk, just eyeballed it. Not sure why I never tried it before. Now I have a half gallon of yogurt.

Use a different pudding flavor.  Can you imagine what it would be like if you used pumpkin, butterscotch, or lemon?

It is because it is SOO easy.

Last night I got some in a bowl and for lack of fresh fruit put in strawberry preserves. That worked better than the jello. Figure best way is fresh strawberries and put sugar on them so they are that sugary goopy wonderfulness and put that in. But I am not so patient sometimes. :)

It is just a bit tart without some sort of sugar. But figure I will have this all figured out how we like it before I make the other half gallon.

Or banana and then add strawberries to it. Maybe a banana or two.

Hubby is stuck up and only wants strawberries. :p
