    I would just forgo the flavoured yogurt and buy some fresh mangoes and mix it with plain yogurt. I don't buy flavoured yogurt any longer after checking out the ingredient lists on them. I found a lot of crap in there, which ticked me off as yogurt is marketed as a healthy food choice. I mix fruit and yogurt every day for my mid-morning snack. Frozen fruit if no fresh is available. Mind you, I don't like frozen mango, it's nowhere near as tasty as fresh. Berries, pomegrante seeds, and cherries are fine frozen, though.

    Re: General Food Talk

    I've been craving grapes like crazy, for about a month, but I was going to ask around to find out who has the best grapes right now; I have friends who are in stores much more than I will ever be. One of my friends told me to "just drink some wine!". I just about yelled at her...when I want grapes....I want GRAPES...when I want wine....I'll find some wine!!! Wine, in no way, would satisfy my grape craving, but I guess it would put me to sleep so that I wouldn't feel or I would forget about the grape craving.........but..........n o thank you, Miss Ella!

    I'm thinking of making my own yogurt which sounds like a simple process. We go thru so much greek yogurt here its getting to be an expensive habit.

    It *is* really simple and not all that time consuming -- and I'm a little embarrassed that I haven't done it in a long time! In the late '70s and early '80s, I worked as a paraprofessional aide in an elementary school (Milwaukee German and French Immersion School). One of the school cooks made homemade yogurt for the students and staff, and explained to us -- in German! -- how to do it ourselves, without one of those newfangled (at the time) yogurt makers. I need to start doing that again...

    Further to the homemade yogurt / mango talk, I make my own yogurt and add a little vanilla and honey to it. This gets poured over chunks of fresh mango. Best dessert ever.

    what kind of milk do you use to make it rattus? I think for greek yogurt its supposed to be made out of goat or sheep milk. But I wouldn't know where to find that. lol

    You should be able to find at least goats milk at a decent health food store - a large one with a cooler. I just use regular old cow's milk, usually skim. I don't let it ferment too long because I prefer it to be less tart, and then I often drain it in a muslin bag to thicken it. You can add garlic or onion or anything savoury to a smaller amount and let it sit for a longer time in a smaller strainer (I put it in a tea strainer) and you'll end up with a nice creamcheese-like spread for veggies or bread.

    ok sounds easy enough. We have a great coop locally owned health foods store here. I will look there for the goats milk.

    Once as I was picking out red seedless grapes in the grocery store, an elderly lady told me to pick out grapes with a plump stem, not dried out, and the darker red the sweeter. She was right!

    I will definitely keep that in mind. I've been told to go to Sam's for the best grapes! Big and juicy!!
