Raspberry Flaxseed Yogurt Cup

Raspberry Flaxseed Yogurt Cup


I recently became aware of a Swedish type of yogurt called Siggi’s yogurt. It says on the bottle that they are the Swedish version of kefir, known as filmjolk.  (There should be an accent mark called an umlaut over the o, but I didn’t know how to insert it.)  They say they get the milk from family farms in New York state. I bought it at the health food store recently, and it is quite good.  It does taste just like kefir, and has a refreshing kind of effervescense (light carbonation) that is often found in kefir.  Plain kefir is rather strong tasting, so if you are used to the kind with sugar you might need to add some fruit or fruit juice.  Here is a simple recipe using kefir or yogurt:

Rapberry Flaxseed Yogurt Cup

1/2 cup natural plain kefir or yogurt
1 tablespoon whole ground flaxseed meal
5  raspberries, whole or sliced

Add flaxseed and raspberries to kefir or yogurt and stir.  If you want to use some of the raspberry juice for flavoring, you can slice the raspberries before adding.
