It almost reminded me of being a kid again, eating cereal. Not to say it’s really like that at all- more like oatmeal than anything, for the soft creamy texture…

Stirring it up!

And, you can mingle the flavours more by giving it a good stir!

  1. We must think alike: last year I couldn’t stop mixing canned pumpkin and yogurt with stevia and cinnamon! This is much more elegant, though. I just bought a kabocha and made some homemade yogurt. What a coincidence. πŸ™‚ By the way, have you made kefir before? I’m trying to think of things to do with it other than just drinking it straight.

      • I haven’t made it before, but I’ve tried the store-bought kind. It’s a little like a cross between yogurt and buttermilk, and much healthier than regular milk. I’ll let you know if it works. The starter is out of stock on iherb last time I checked, though.

  2. This is really cool, I’ve been meaning to try kabocha – In a noisy car a friend of mine recently mentioned I should try kabocha – It thought she said kombucha, so I was like “oh yeah, I just posted a whole series on my blog on making kombucha” and she was like “oh wow, you grew kabocha?” and so the confusion continued until I realized she was talking about squash and I was talking about a drink.

    Thanks for sharing this on Waste Not Want Not Wednesday πŸ™‚

  3. {grins} I didn’t know that there was a squash called Kabocha! And you can eat the skins? How interesting! The squash look like butternut squash, which we have tons of. Hmm. I ought to go cook some of those up tonight. πŸ˜€
    This looks SOO good! I’m sugar free, so finding new recipes like this is always fun.

    (And I found it off the Waste Not Want Not link up). *grin*

  4. warning – do not eat the bowl! I ate a bit too much squash skin last winter and landed in the hospital with a bowel obstruction. Emergency resection and 3 weeks in the hospital all because of squash.
