DIRECTIONS

  • Mix in a double boiler the yogurt and the sugar.
  • Heat the mixture while constantly stirring for about 15 minutes at 160 degrees F to 175 degrees F. Never let it boil!
  • When the syrup is at room temperature, add the citric acid powder and vanilla extract.
  • For serving, dilute the syrup with 3 or 4 times more of water or club soda (carbonated water) to your taste. Serve with ice.
  • Note: If you buy Calpico, don't mix it using the instructions on the bottle! The recommended proportions are much too strong, and it would be best to cut the amount in half.
