Fruit-Flax Yogurt.

Back in September of 2009 - when I first read Dr. Fuhrman's book, Disease Proof Your Child, I knew this recipe was a first-try recipe. I knew the only way I'd be able to get my kids off dairy was to find a proper replacement for their yogurt on their morning waffles. It was a hit! We also subbed peanut butter, banana slices and a little honey too. Yum.

So, when a friend asked how she could ween herself off yogurt, I looked for this post, and couldn't find it. I can't believe I hadn't posted it yet! Belly Bites wasn't born yet... and I probably was a little unsure if I was even going to really do this plant-based thing. Funny how I totally proved myself wrong.

2 cups fresh or frozen berries, peaches, etc.
1/2 cup soy or almond milk
1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
3 medjool or 6 deglet noor dates

Blend until smooth. Chill and serve. I love storing them in old baby food containers... perfect size for a snack or for lunch.


  1. ohhh I like this one. My kids were weird and didn't but I think it's because they have had too much processed stuff lately. I'm going to try it on them again.

  2. Score!! Thanks Jen, My kids say its BETTER than real yogurt! Awesome!


Let me know what you thought if you've bitten one of my bites!
