It's finally feeling spring-like here (although for a few days this week, we skipped right to summer--it was almost 90 on Wednesday!) and the stores have been awash in strawberries. Hooray! I never thought I'd say it, but I was getting really tired of winter fruit. I mean, a girl can only eat so many bags of clementines before she starts turning orange, you know? This was my breakfast yesterday after almost a week of nothing but thinned out congee and soup for lunch (I'm almost back to normal now, thank goodness). Man, was it good--the strawberries are super juicy (I'm eating some right now!) and the yogurt! So good!
I came across these adorable little jars of yogurt made by the White Cow Dairy at the Murray's Cheese outpost in Grand Central Market. They are a bit spendy at $2.99 for a small jar, but I bought a jar of maple and a jar of gingerberry to try out, and I can see that I'm going to be having a very pricey yogurt habit to deal with now.
Here's a closer look of the gingerberry--it's so creamy and rich and thick and has a nice warm spiciness from the ginger. I can't find any nutritional information on these, but I am pretty sure they are not the low fat kinda yogurt. And that's okay, because this is totally going to be a dessert kind of yogurt for me. I can't wait to try out all the other flavors. Good thing the market is 5 minutes from my office.
And hey, when I'm done, the cute little jars will double to hold homemade pudding...or serve as mini vases for flowers...or to store spices...
