Make your own drinkable yogurt

Moxie, of the indispensable parenting advice site Ask Moxie, makes her own drinkable yogurt:

Drinkable yogurt is delicious but super-expensive and sugary. To make your own less expensive and less sweet drinkable yogurt, buy regular flavored yogurt and cut it with plain milk, then shake to mix. You can even put it in old drinkable yogurt containers to fool your kids, if you need to.

Be careful reusing plastic containers for drinking that are not meant for reuse. They can be dangerously full of bacteria.

Instead of pouring it into a cup or bottle, freeze it into summer yogurt /ice cream popsicles

What a great idea. My son is addicted to these and is costing me a forunte!

Very smart! I recently saw one of those blurbs on babycenter from a woman who wrote about not giving her kid watermelon "because of the sugar" but giving her YoBaby. Um...

Are most containers fine as long as you put them in the dishwasher between uses?

Try Kefir instead. It is very similar to the drinkable yogurt but a LOT cheaper. A 32oz bottle of Lifeway Kefir is between $2.50 and $3.50 in the Chicago area. http://www.lifeway.net/product/kefir.php
