We all know that yogurt is a great digestive aid and a good addition to your daily diet. In fact, my wife and I have been making our own yogurt for the past year and a half and eat it on a daily basis.
At first I was a little hesitant when my wife told me about this yogurt starter that her friend had purchased in Japan that you use to make your own yogurt, but after we made our first batch and I tasted it, I was hooked.
The yogurt is called Caspian Yogurt and can also be purchased online either from Japan or from distributors here in America. What I like about it is that it is very easy to make, and easy on the wallet because once you get the starter culture going, all you need to buy is fresh whole milk and you’re in business.
It is all natural and doesn’t have any added preservatives, sugar, or artificial flavors. I have never been a fan of plain yogurt but once I tasted the Caspian yogurt I can’t imagine going back to store bought flavored yogurt ever again.
My wife will eat her yogurt with fruits and granola, but I use it to make a healthy breakfast smoothie with spirulina, protein powder, banana, and strawberry. Add in a couple of ice cubes, blend, and you’ve got a quick, instant energy “meal” that will get you through the morning.
We told our vet about it, and not only did she say it would be a good thing for Penny to eat a small bit of yogurt every day, but she also tried the yogurt for herself and is now as hooked on it as we are.
Even Penny likes the taste of the Caspian yogurt and will come to the kitchen every morning for her special “treat”.
