Today I am thankful for yogurt. I have always loved yogurt for as long as I can remember. I am not sure if it is the creaminess, the fruitiness, or the fact that it is a nice, cool treat that has endeared it to me for all of these years.
Speaking of cool treats, as a child I got into the habit of taking individual little containers of yogurt, putting them into the freezer, and letting them stay there until they froze. Then I would take one out of the freezer whenever I wanted a cool snack and eat it just like that, with a spoon of course. The texture of the yogurt was a cross between that of ice milk and ice cream, not quite crystallized, but not quite smooth either. And somehow one of those little frozen containers of yogurt would be more than enough to temporarily drive away the heat of an excessively warm summer’s day.
And before I knew it my little favorite past time became a new trend, as loved ones of mine started putting their cups of yogurt into the freezer and eating them once they had had time to freeze too. You are probably thinking that freezing regular yogurt sounds a bit odd, but I say you might as well not knock it until you try it. And who knows, you just might discover that you like it too. #lovebythedrop
