Great tips for using Greek Yogurt

greek-yogurt Lately I have been really trying to use greek yogurt as a replacement for fattier food options including using it in my fruit smoothies to replace plain vanilla yogurt. Greek yogurt is packed with high protein and is a great alternative to replace high calorie food options like mayo. Here are some great tips below and let me know if you have any other ones.

  • Cheesecake: When making a homemade cheesecake you can substitute the cream cheese and if you want you can replace all or just a portion of the cream cheese with greek yogurt instead.
  • Marinated your meat in greek yogurt spreads instead of oil based alternatives will allow you to cut the fats and calories and keep your meat moist.
  • Add a small amount ontop of waffles with some fruit to help substitute your syrup
  • Deviled Eggs when making your traditional deviled eggs replace the traditional mayonaise with a healthier option of greek yogurt.
  • Mashed Potatoes instead of adding butter to your potatoes try replacing with a dollop of greek yogurt instead.
  • When eating tacos and chillis replace your sour cream with greek yogurt to help cut calories but still give you the creaminess you like.
  • Add a large amount of protein to your traditional fruit smoothies I mix my smoothies with greek yogurt, fresh fruit, ice, and almond milk and it packs around 19 grams of protein per 8 ounces glass.
  • Ranch dressing if you like to remake your dressing with the hidden valley dry ranch mixes instead of using oil and mayo replace with greek yogurt.
  • Add a dollop of greek yogurt to your soups to give them a creamy consitency.
  • Potato Salad, Tuna and Chicken salad is another great way where you can replace the mayonaise with greek yogurt and you can still keep the creaminess you enjoy but with alot less fat and calories.
  • If you are looking for a great dip for fresh fruit you can use greek yogurt plain or you can add fat free cool whip to it or chocolate syrup for a yummy fruit dip.
