Do you eat plenty of calcium?
I saw my GP recently and had a conversation about my calcium intake. You know, getting older… bones need to stay strong… that sort of thing. After my spectacular fall earlier in the year which resulted in shoulder surgery and lots of physio – and a hairstyle I still get asked about! -, we checked my bone density. It is fine for now, but it has made me more aware of my age and health.
Short story: my lovely doctor was not really impressed with the amount of calcium I was getting. Sigh.
So I decided (after a stern talking to) that I really should do something about it.
Enter my new favourite treat! Frozen Raspberry Yoghurt!
This not only has meant I have another serve of calcium each day but it is also a serve of raspberries – win,win!
What You Need
- 1kg tub vanilla yoghurt (or plain yoghurt if you prefer)
- 500g frozen raspberries
What To Do
- Put yoghurt and berries into a food processor.
- Process until smooth.
- Move into lidded container and freeze.
I originally made this with plain yoghurt but it was quite tart so the vanilla yoghurt helps to make it a little sweeter. Alternatively you could add honey to the plain yoghurt and berries to take the edge of the tartness.
You could easily switch the raspberries for other fruit. My Little Miss loves mangoes at this time of year so she is already asking me to make some with mango. I have also made it with mixed frozen berries when that was what I had in the freezer.
This is now on my weekend must-make list, and those coles frozen fruits are cheap enough that I can whip up a few different fruits and put them in my unused ikea icy pole moulds for the kids!

I’ve never seen this yogurt before. I’m following Weight Watchers so I’m wondering about the nutrition facts so I can count the points. Fruit has 0 points.This sounds so good as a sweet treat. Thanks for sharing it.
