Do you enjoy smoothies? I am recently getting in to them. I like the idea of upping the protein and flavor, and really didn't want a watery iced-down drink. So, I thought I would share my solution with you: yogurt "ice" cubes!

Step 1: You will need:

You probably already have most of what you need on hand to make yogurt "ice" cubes!

* Ice cube trays
* Oil (that you won't mind the taste of in your smoothie, like coconut or something neutral like grapeseed)
* Yogurt
* A freezer
* A narrow spoon and/or a CLEAN flavor injector

Step 2: Oil your cube trays

This step is the longest and most tedious, but you will be glad you did it when you are bleary-eyed trying to get that yummy smoothie goodness in the morning!

Take a bit of your oil on your clean finger (or, in the case of something like grapeseed oil, you could start with a small drop in each cube). Smear a thin layer on all the sides and the bottom of each cube section, going all the way to the top. It does not need to be so thick that the oil puddles on the bottom, but you do want to make sure you get adequate coverage.

This is why you want an edible oil - you are likely going to end up with some of it in your smoothie. I have found coconut oil is quite pleasant, even with berries. but anything you don't find offensive really should be fine.
