Using fruits and vegetables to create flavors for dairy products is becoming more popular as people look for new ways to get the essential oils those items offer. Fruits and vegetables can be used to flavor a variety of different dairy items:
- Ice Cream
- Cottage Cheese
- Cream Cheese
Yogurt, cream cheese, and cottage cheese flavored with fruits or vegetables are popular as healthier breakfast options. Adding flavor to yogurt gives more delicious options of a popular morning food item. With flavor in the cream cheese, those who eat bagels in the morning will use less of the fatty dairy product. Flavoring shakes and ice cream with fruits and vegetables can cut back on the refined sugars used in such items, making them a healthier dessert alternative.
