I have experimented with this one, have you ever found that sometimes on pancakes or cakes you fancy a little runny icing? Yoghurt alone is a little thick for this purpose ( I am by no means saying this tip is the equivalent to icing) That being said to make yoghurt like icing consistency adding a little milk to loosen the texture and you can get creative by adding some flavour drops to make a tasty drizzle.
15ml almond/ milk of choice
