As a dip! One of the main ways I use greek yogurt is as a dip. Before my health kick I was a big fan of mayonnaise. Since Greek yoghurt came into my life I've been using it as a substitute. Now when I have sweet potatoes I make sure to have a side dip of yogurt.You can mix this with different herbs and spices to create a different taste.
Instead of sour cream! When I make fajitas these days I tend not to buy sour cream, instead I use yoghurt when putting together my wrap. It does the same job in cooling down the spicy chicken but makes it a healthier dish.
As a breakfast, dessert or snack! I was recently given a meal plan that advised I could have Greek yoghurt with fruit for breakfast with nuts. I jazzed this up a bit with what I had in the kitchen and created this: Greek yoghurt with strawberries, walnuts, almonds, chia seeds and pumpkin seeds - full of protein and good fats! You could even mix up something different for dessert like: Greek yoghurt with banana, chocolate drops and a dollop of almond butter. If you are just wanting a simple snack, some yoghurt with fruit and nuts would be perfect!
In a smoothie! This is where people typically use Greek yoghurt which is great! It adds lots of protein amongst the other bits you blitz up to make a smoothie.
I hope these ideas will make there way into your diets! I can't wait until my holiday this year when I will get to go to a Greek island and taste real Greek yoghurt. Obsessed.
Which ideas are your favourite? If you have any more ways I can use yoghurt let me know!
