Embrace the versatility of Greek yogurt by learning the numerous possibilities for how to use it in the kitchen.
I think most of you know by now that I am a big fan of Greek yogurt — it’s a good source of calcium and protein, and it’s lower in sugar than other types of yogurt (especially when you stick to the original). One of the other things I love about Greek yogurt, is its versatility.
The Versatility of Greek Yogurt
Yogurt isn’t just for breakfast or snacks anymore.
- It’s a protein-rich base for smoothies
- It adds creaminess to soups…
- …and sauces like the Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Sauce I served over ravioli for pre-trick-or-treat dinner
- It can be a sweet dip for fruit…
- ….or a savory spread for burgers and patties like my Corn Basil Cakes
- It adds some zing to dressings that top nutritious and delicious salads like my Salmon Waldorf Salad
- It can be served for dessert in the form of Fruity Greek Yogurt Popsicles…
- …or added to baked goods like my Yogurt Cake with Honey Syrup and Chocolate Pear Bread for increased moisture without the additional calories from fat
- It can be used in place of mayonnaise and sour cream in dips and salads, like my lightened-up version of Esquites (aka Mexican Street Corn Salad).
Have you ever used Greek yogurt in place of other ingredients?
