Here are my Four Foods on Friday #74 answers:
Valmg says she’s going on a diet of pureed foods soon and needs some answers…
1. What’s your favorite flavor of yogurt?
I like lots of different yogurts but here’s my top favorites.
Just plain Vanilla – this is my top fav because it’s so easy to cut up whatever fruit is handy, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, bananas and toss in. I also like granola cereals or grape nuts on it too.
Aside from the vanilla, I’ll take boysenberry, strawberry, cherry, mixed fruits, blackberry. My boys like orange creme.
As for types of yogurt, I usually just eat the regular kind.. but I used to really like the thick custard style.. but I never see it any more. The whipped is ok, too.
2. Got a recipe for a smoothie?
I’m not much of a recipe follower when it comes to smoothies.. but here’s a site with over a hundred different recipes for making smoothies ~ Fruit Smoothie Recipes by RC.
Typically, I’m a throw whatever I have in the blender and mix it up.. usually a handful of ice, a bit of juice and whatever fruits I’m adding. Sometimes the fruits end up being on the tart side, so a bit of sugar will get mixed in too.
I love raspberries but in smoothies you’ll be sucking up a bazillion seeds.. I kid you not.
3. Got a recipe for split pea soup?
Really and truly I only like peas fresh from the garden.. or the crunchy kind (as in, still fresh) in the pod still that you might toss into a salad or oriental dish. Of all the veggies I like, I just can’t do peas any other way. No split pea soup recipes to share.
4. What’s your favorite kind of pudding?
Chocolate would be my favorite. But I like banana pudding with bananas and vanilla wafers. Cheesecake pudding is good (use graham crackers, melted butter and some sugar for a crust if you want a pie). Rice pudding and Tapioca pudding are both yummy too!
