So I sorta goofed. My 2 year old daughter eats plain yogurt twice a day - once before her nap and once before bed. So - when we buy plain yogurt, we buy a lot of it. Last month, we ordered it through our natural foods co-op, because it was a bit cheaper that way. We ordered 12 quarts. When they came, they had about a one month shelf life. Perfect - we had ordered about a one month supply. When I ordered for this month, we weren't as fortunate. My co-op order came in on March 21. The sell-by date on the yogurt was March 29. That gave us 12 quarts of high quality, organic, full-fat, plain yogurt to use in eight days. So - here it is, March 29th and I still have eight of the twelve quarts to use. They don't freeze well - I've tried. I can't be certain - but my guess is that I have about a week to ten days to use them.
So this is where I need your help. Do you have any creative ways to use up plain yogurt? Any recipes that call for it? PLEASE leave a comment, including your recipe or a fun way to use this stuff. If you post a comment, I will enter you into a random drawing to win something fantastic. I haven't decided what I'll give away yet - but I promise it won't be an expired quart of plain yogurt. :) Please send me your ideas by April 5th. Thanks for your help. I will post an update - with the prize details - within the week.
