Yogurt is the unsung hero of the fridge. It's a cool balance to spicy cuisines, a reliable on-the-go breakfast, and home to all sorts of healthy bacteria. Greek, spiced, whipped, or frozen, yogurt is a dairy product of many talents -- a Renaissance ingredient.
Sadly, poor yogurt gets the processed treatment all too often. Putting it in tubes? Packing it with sugar and food coloring? Why? Don't put your yogurt through that when it's so simple (and so delicious) to make at home. While you're at it, double the batch and use it in as many of these recipes as you'd like.
