Why not try herbs in your yogurt?

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly!

Serves: 2


  • A handful fresh coriander leaves
  • A handful fresh basil leaves
  • A small pot of plain yogurt
  • 1 lime
  • A chunk of cucumber


You will also need:

  • An apron
  • A chopping board
  • A large plastic bowl
  • A plastic lemon squeezer
  • A wooden spoon
  • A sharp knife (to use with an adult)
  • A chopping board


  1. Spoon the yogurt into the bowl.
  2. Cut the lime in half with a sharp knife. Squeeze the lime on the lemon squeezer to make as much juice as you can. Pour into the bowl.
  3. Tear the herbs into the bowl.
  4. Chop the cucumber into small pieces.
  5. Using all your strength mix all the ingredients thoroughly.
  6. Chill in the fridge for about 15 mins before serving.

You can try adding any of your favourite herbs.

Serve with your favourite raw vegetables or any kind of bread. Or why not try broccoli or mild peppers?

Raw vegetables are packed with nutrients.

  1. Sounds delicious. My Mum grows herbs in her garden, and she is going to try to send me some. (see how they cope in the post!). I love yogurt dips, I have made some myself using spices, but not herbs before. I will try this if the herbs reach me in good condition. 😉
    Thanks, Amanda. #kcacols

  2. We need more dip-spiration for Evie’s lunch! This sounds really tasty. Perfect for dipping carrots and other crudites and introducing new flavours!! xx #letkidsbekids

  3. We will need to try this, I had never thought of adding herbs to yoghurt. It looks delicious! I think we will need to get some Naan or similar and make this!
    Thanks so much for linking up to #HowtoSunday 🙂 x
