“Can you put sour things on yogurt?” my friend asked at dinner the other night. We were looking at a photo of this winter citrus yogurt bowl on my phone, while we (not so patiently) waited for the waitress to take our orders. He was concerned that the sour fruit would curdle the yogurt, the way lemon juice affects milk.
I honestly had a similar thought the first time I saw citrus on a yogurt parfait. I’ve often added fresh berries to yogurt in the summer months, but the sourness of citrus paired with the tang of yogurt wasn’t something that I thought I would enjoy.
It was only when I found myself in the (somewhat awful) coffee shop at my previous job, starving at 8:30am having left the house on an empty stomach 2 hours before, that I decided to give it a shot. I bought an overpriced plastic cup of yogurt with 3 slices of clementines, a sprinkling of granola and 2 pecan halves and went back to my desk.
Maybe it was the starvation, or my low blood sugar, that affected my response to this new breakfast pairing. I’ll never know. But I can tell you that citrus on yogurt is delicious!
