There are so many things to do with greek yogurt besides eating it from the container.
What do you like to do with it????
Post it on here to help others try new things with it and get out of the box!!
I sometimes make sort of a parfait sort of thing-like I mix some truvia with the plain flavor and a little cocoa powder then I layer it with kashi cocoa beach granola and frozen blackberries. Sometimes just only the granola-and sometimes Nature's Path peanut butter granola.
Sometimes I mix a little Bell Plantation PB2 with it (and some truvia) and use it as a dip for slices of granny smith apples!
I use it as mayo in salads like tuna and chicken. It so creamy!
I tried Greek yogurt a couple times and did not care for the taste. I must have to mix it with something to make it taste alright. So it's a healthier choice I take it?
It is higher in protein- which can keep you fuller longer.
Yeah-don't have it plain. If you have a sweet tooth, do like what I did in the first post of this thread--or sweeten it and add some fruit--something to make it better for you! If you don't have a sweet tooth, use it in place of mayo or sour cream in your fave recipes!
thanks for the tips
I mix it with berries (fresh or frozen) and about a teaspoon of lemon curd or raspberry jam. If I want it to be more like a dessert topping for my berries I mix in a little reduced fat whipped topping. I also use it as a straight up substitute for sour cream on potatoes or mexican food.
I am completely stuck on having it with granola and berries---the more berries the better. It tastes amazing and I have it 3 times a week or more!
I also use it in place of sour cream.
are we talking about the proper double cream version? or the boring low fat version? because personally i use it as acream substitute in everything (or go half-and-half cream and yoghurt) because i tell myself 9g of fat is better than 32g per 100g. maybe i am kidding myself, but my salad dressings taste amazing.
Brownie mix and use it instead of oil...so I have heard..haven't tried it yet
Mix 1/2 cup greek yogurt with sliced cucumber, fresh mint, dill, and a little lemon zest and lemon juice. This is one of my favorite "spreads" I put it on Turkey burgers, Salmon, Salad - just dip for veggies. YUMMY!
