yogurt pots

Louise Oliver

A great fruit yoghurt is simple to make and far tastier, healthier and cheaper than the preservative laden supermarket ones. All you need is a pot of good natural yoghurt and you can create your very own delicious fruit corner with whatever seasonal frozen or fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, jams and oats that takes your fancy. These are great for breakfast, lunch or pop them in the freezer for a frozen pudding.
