Mountain High Yoghurt Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

mountain high yoghurt It’s almost summer and there’s nothing that screams summer more than bright colors and fresh foods. Living in California summer also means citrus season and with the juiciest lemons sold right at local farms I’m always looking for ways to use them.

As a big family we are always looking for ways to keep to our budget. We go through a lot of fresh foods throughout the week but we also use a lot of yoghurt and dairy products.

Mountain High Yoghurt has been made the old fashioned way and cultured in a cup. It’s budget friendly and is made with 10g of protein in each serving. Yogurt is an excellent way to start the day and it’s also low in fat so it’s diet friendly too.
