10 Ways To Use Greek Yogurt

I’ve mentioned before that Greek yogurt is one of my favorite foods, and something I always have in my kitchen.  I love the tangy flavor, and the thick consistency.  I also love the fact that it’s a healthy food – low in sugar, high in protein and full of probiotics, or healthy bacteria, which help your GI tract and immune system.  It’s a food that I could (and usually do) eat every day.   The small containers make a great, portable snack, but I also keep a few large containers of plain yogurt on hand, because it’s a healthier substitute for sour cream, mayonnaise or butter, and there are so many ways to use it.  Here are a few suggestions – click on the photo for the recipe:

Cucumber Feta Dip
Chipotle Dip
Blue Cheese Dressing with Iceberg Wedge
Roasted Red Pepper Spread
Creamy Mashed Potatoes
Turkey Cranberry Wrap
Cucumber Melon Smoothie
Chicken, Rice and Mushroom Casserole


Yogurt Covered Strawberries



[box] Tip! Cold yogurt can curdle if heated too quickly, or added to something hot, so make sure you temper it – warm it a bit by adding some hot cooking liquid to the yogurt, while stirring well. Then add the warmed yogurt to your recipe.  Full fat Greek yogurt is a bit more stable and won’t curdle as easily.[/box]
