There's a yogurt for everybody

6 creative ways to serve Greek yogurt


Selected for you this week: 6 surprising ways to use Greek yogurt. Every week, we bring you valuable quotes from around the web on yogurt.

Greek yogurt is high in fat-burning protein, probiotics, and calcium—but do you know how else to use it outside of your breakfast bowl?

1. Tenderize meat: Increase the juiciness of holiday roasts by marinating them overnight in Greek yogurt mixed with herbs and spices.

2. Craft a new trifle: Layer yogurt with pomegranate, walnuts, and honey in a parfait cup for a gluten-free treat.

3. Top desserts: Serve pumpkin pie, gingerbread, and other desserts with a dollop of rich Greek yogurt instead of sugary whipped cream.

4. Make healthier ice cream: Put Greek yogurt into an ice cream maker with honey and blueberries for homemade frozen yogurt. It’s that simple.

5. Slim down mashed potatoes: Add Greek yogurt to mashed potatoes instead of butter to turn a normally fattening side into a protein-packed dish.

6. Bake smarter: Use Greek Yogurt as a fat substitute (sub it in for butter, oil, shortening) in baked goods—it’s much richer and more flavorful than applesauce. Tweak the flavor by adding honey, vanilla, cocoa powder, etc.
