As I was eating my peanut butter & banana yogurt for breakfast, I started wondering what else I can use yogurt for. I looked around online and found some pretty good ideas. Here are some of my favorites:
1-Smoothies-- I've made a lot of smoothies with my new vitamix. The yogurt helps make it creamier, and adds flavor.
2-When a recipe calls for sour cream, mayo, or heavy cream, try using yogurt instead.
3-Salad dressings-- I don't buy dressing from the store anymore. (I like fruity ones anyway, so what would be the point?) Almost all of my homemade dressings have at least a little bit of yogurt in them.
4-Use in muffins instead of oil. (I wonder if this works better or worse than applesauce?)
5-Use as a dip
6-Make a parfait with some berries from your basket and the granola add-on. (I've never gotten the granola, but I've heard it's delicious!)
7-There are some great frosting recipes that call for yogurt.
8-Tzatziki (I discovered this at Pita Pit--and I love it!)
9-Use it as a marinade
There are just so many things you can do with yogurt, and it goes so well with a lot of the stuff we get in our baskets every week!
