I dedicate this short homemade video to all the under 18 running the Mini Marathon in London this Sunday.
May the sun shine and you all have a great day!
I will be rooting for my favourite contestant and supporting all of you up to Pall Mall.
This video is home-shot in my kitchen and lays down simple nutrition rules for children who want to get fit and eat better. All of the recipes are on the blog.
Love the flower shaped pot!
Deceptively simple and totally delicious…
1 litre of organic whole milk
1 pot of live yogurt (and subsequently some off your latest batch…)
Half the yogurt pot of sugar
One full pot of powdered milk
2 tsp of orange blossom water
Warm the milk to 50°C – check with a jam thermometer if possible or just the back of your hand: warm but not burning! Leave it for 5 min. then take it off the hob to add the other ingredients. I use the yogurt pot to measure everything else for ease. Add the powdered milk, the sugar and flavouring and put it back on the hob for 4 to 5 minutes until all is dissolved. Do not let it go too hot. Add the live yogurt and whisk briskly.
Pour into individual glass pots or jam jars or a large glass container as here. This recipe will make enough yogurt for a family for a few days- if you eat yogurt every day.
Put the pots in a slightly warm oven (50°) and leave them for 8 hours. I myself put it as I went to bed and woke up the next day after my 9 hours sleep with perfectly creamy yogurt to enjoy for breakfast – Bliss! The result was a set yogurt with an incredibly creamy consistency and the cleanest taste ever.
Tonight I shall do the same but this time I ‘ll leave the sugar out and use the zest of a bergamot I have purchased from Natoora… Pure luxury shopping! Can’t wait to taste my Earl Grey flavoured yogurt tomorrow…
This recipe was inspired by a lengthy search on the Internet and specifically by conversations going on the lovely illustrated site tambouille.fr.
