It’s no secret that I am a fan of greek yogurt. I like the slight tang that it offers and the thicker consistency. Even my cat, Leopold enjoys it!
When I received a lovely package from Chobani as part of their #MadeWithChobani campaign, we were so excited!
We’ve already set to work putting the greek yogurt to use in many ways.
Replacing Sour Cream or Mayonnaise
Using Greek Yogurt is a great way to make a dish healthier while still keeping the tang of sour cream or mayonnaise. Some ways that I’ve used greek yogurt to replace those ingredients are:
Adding Creaminess to Sauces and Soups
Sometimes you need just a little more creaminess in a dish but you don’t want the added fat. I often add some Greek yogurt to my dishes to help emulsify sauces or thicken broths. Recently I boiled some pasta, added some Indian Vindaloo sauce, mixed it with Chobani Greek Yogurt and Voila!.

- Thai Basil Pesto Penne & Shrimp
- White Chicken Chili
Yogurts are a good dairy-alternative in baked goods as well, especially breads and muffins.
As the Star
And of course, who couldn’t love an amazing yogurt dip to cool a hot dish or a frozen yogurt?
- Strawberry Frozen Yogurt (my favorite yogurt recipe to date!)
- Sweet Potato Quinoa Cakes with Tzatziki Sauce
