Inadvertent yogurt

adj : without intention (especially resulting from heedless action)

So this morning while in my groggy state I was left to devise a breakfast without strawberries again. Since I had the good fortune of having some fresh blueberries I decided to make myself a smoothie to go with my apple slices.

I wanted simple, so I put about half a pint of baby blues into my blender with a cuppa soy.

I blended the 'double hockey sticks' out of it because that blender is dying its slow death and always begs for too much moisture to blend properly.

I poured it into a cup and had a sip. Not bad. I bring it out so I could watch the news and let it sit for a minute while I found the channel with the best coverage of the morning headline (read: London terrorists!). I munch on my apple and grab my smoothie and take a sip. I cannot sip! It has gotten very thick. Really thick. Yogurty thick!

I grabbed a spoon and dug in. Sure, it doesn't have any of the beneficial bacteria of real yogurt or any other of the benefits of yogurt, but it had the consistency.

In my book, sometimes that's all you need. Besides, blueberry yogurt was always one of my favorite things.

Hi Nikk! Thank you for stopping by my blog!

I like your accidental yogurt! It sounds really good. I've had trouble with a few fruit smoothies that were not straw-worthy because of over-thickness! (Too much protein powder, I think!) I haven't had to use a spoon yet, but I'm sure that will happen one of these days. When it does, I'll just call it "inadvertent yogurt" and will be happy with it!

Sounds like it was wonderful and so simple to make :)

Don't get many blueberries here so mine will have to be strawberries or gooseberries.
