Yoghurt is a nutritious food made from fermented milk. It is a good source of calcium, phosphorous and iodine and also contains lactobacillus, a probiotic bacteria than can be good for your health. Research has also shown that eating yoghurt may help lengthen your life. Yoghurt can be added to a variety of foods and can be used to make yoghurt covered snacks. It's simple to make yoghurt-covered raisins, pretzels or nuts.

Place yoghurt in mixing bowl.

Slowly pour in confectioners sugar, mixing with hand blender, until the sugar has been mixed into the yoghurt and the mixture is smooth.

Use tongs or chopsticks to dip pretzels into bowl and coat with mixture. If coating nuts or raisins, pour them into the bowl and stir until they are coated.

Place pretzels, raisins or nuts on baking tray covered with waxed paper until they are dry.
