Five Innovative Ways to Use Greek Yogurt During the Holidays
Yogurt recently became the Official Snack of New York State, and we are pretty sure Greek Yogurt is the unofficial favorite.
This Mediterranean alternative to the more mainstream cultured treat is a versatile substitution for higher fat content ingredients and can be easily incorporated into your holiday recipes.
Here are the five best ways to incorporate Greek Yogurt into your favorite family traditions. Your guests will love your dishes and won’t even know you made the switch!
Use Greek Yogurt for Side Dishes
Greek Yogurt easily replaces or reduces heavier ingredients that are often-used in side dish recipes, namely sour cream, butter, mayonnaise, oil, and cream cheese. One cup of sour cream, mayonnaise, or cream cheese can be swapped out for a cup of yogurt. You can make healthier twice-baked potatoes, macaroni and cheese, healthy hollandaise sauce for your vegetables, and even mashed potatoes.
Enjoy Healthy Holiday Baking
Greek Yogurt doesn’t mean your baked goods will be any less delicious. Many recipes for festive holiday breads and cakes work with yogurt perfectly. Use our innovative non-stick loaf pan liner to make things even easier.
Are you assigned to holiday treats? You can make chocolate cookies or even truffles with Greek Yogurt.
