Everyone in my house has had a round of antibiotics lately. So in addition to our probiotics, I wanted to have a fun option for getting even more probiotics into us. Enter….Fun Finds Friday—Yogurt Squares.
Actually I renamed these Yogurt Squares (they are originally called Probiotic Gelatin Treats). I figured that would be more interesting to a kid.
Simply put…it’s yogurt plus gelatin; kind of like finger Jell-O. I used plain, unsweetened coconut milk yogurt. But milk drinkers could use regular yogurt and it would still turn out. Now, I know my vegan readers do not use gelatin, but it would maybe work using agar powder. I don’t know for sure as I have never used agar, but know that I’ve used gelatin in place of agar powder in other’s recipes and it’s worked. I assume the opposite would be true.
Since this isn’t my recipe, I’ll send you to the blog where I found it. But you may want to jot down a few notes that I discovered while making mine.
- The recipe calls for kefir. I used yogurt and it worked.
- 3 little envelopes of unflavored gelatin roughly equals 3 T. of gelatin. This was enough.
- I did not use the lime juice, but I’m thinking I maybe should have.
- When I make this again, I would dissolve the gelatin in the heated juice rather than the way stated in the method.
I will be making these again as they were a hit. You can find the recipe here.
