Plain yogurt, it’s like an empty page aching for life-giving words. I mean… except, instead of words, the yogurt longs for flavor. Don’t get me wrong, if you’re on team “Plain Yogurt For’eva” more power to you (I hear the t-shirts and pledge song are fantastic). But a few simple ingredients can transform a mundane fridge mainstay into something wonderful. This orange basil yogurt is worth the little extra mixing.

Try it. I dare you.

LET’S GET COOKIN MIXIN’

INGREDIENTS

  • yogurt
  • fresh basil
  • orange zest
  • honey
  • orange juice

INSTRUCTIONS

It’s pretty straightforward, don’t get too wrapped up in formalities, informalities, causalities, or abnormalities.

Plain, grass-fed yogurt [if you do dairy] works really well for this orange basil yogurt recipe. It’s a deliciously blank canvas you can paint with bright flavors.

Wash your orange then zest that flavorful little beauty.

Top Tip: organic oranges are the best. The zest has a cleaner taste and less bitterness. Try it. When you’re zesting, it’s best to pony up for the good stuff.

Wash then rip the leaves from your basil stems. Now that you’ve separated the leaves from their mother stem [you monster], you can roll them up like a little baby cigar before you mince them. This video will show you exactly how to do that. This basil will infuse our orange basil yogurt with a rich aromatic flavor that’ll transport your taste buds to Blissville.

Place yogurt in a small mixing bowl. Combine all ingredients. Mix with your official baby whisk, and enjoy on apple sweet potato hash browns or buttermilk pancakes.
