It simply taste better then any store bought yogurt. You can add your own fruits, granola, to your batch of yogurt, but with making starter drops, You'll want to make a freezer bag full so that you have them every time you need them.

There is no doubt that we all need to eat probiotic foods. You remember those lil buggers everyone tells us to eat daily?  The very meaning of the word probiotic is ‘for life’. Thus, yogurt is a life-supporting food that can improve wellbeing, boost immunity, and improve digestion, not only that, but it aids in getting rid of thrush, and kills off those bad guys that cause so much pain.
