Reasons to Go for the Greek

Benefits of Greek Yogurt:Untitled

  • Natural source of calcium and probiotic
  • Higher in protein than regular yogurt (20 g.> 5 g.)
  • Low in fat and carbs
  • Versatile texture and taste

I opt for plain 0% Greek yogurt.

This plain base allows for a sweet or savory flavor transformation

  • Top with berries, whole grain cereal, granola, or a natural sweetener for a breakfast parfait
  • Mix in Stevia and cocoa powder for a sweet treat. Freeze for 30 minutes to make healthy chocolate FroYo!
  • Stir in a spoonful of peanut butter and dash of cinnamon and serve as a dip for apple slices
  • Substitute for oil or butter in baking recipes
  • Spice it up and use it in creamy dips or in place of sour cream
  • Use as a thickener for your smoothies
