To maximise the lifespan of your food, take an insulated cooler bag when shopping and use it for all your frozen and refrigerated purchases.
Store yoghurt in the fridge. Ideally, keep it on the shelves rather than in the door because the door is the warmest place in the fridge.
It is possible to freeze yogurt for up to 1 month. Freezing will alter its texture and flavour but it will be fine for adding to smoothies. Freeze small amounts of leftovers in ice cube trays.
2 to 3 months
Use yoghurt in salads instead of mayonnaise, in soups instead of cream, or to cool down a hot curry.
Good to know!
Strained yoghurt makes a wonderfully easy soft yoghurt cheese called labneh. Darina Allen has an easy to follow labneh recipe.
