3 Ways To Know the Benefits of Greek yogurt or regular yogurt
Now that you know how wonderful Greek and regular yogurt are, here are a few suggestions on how to eat them more regularly:
1. As a Breakfast Alternative
Make a breakfast smoothie by blending half a cup of Greek or regular yogurt with half a frozen banana, a handful of baby spinach, and half a cup of milk. Or, try sprinkling a tablespoon of granola over a bowl of yogurt, then top with a little fresh fruit. Don’t forget that regular yogurt is delicious just as it is, too.
2. As a Substitute
Use yogurt instead of syrup, fresh cream, or custard on desserts. Greek or regular yogurt can also be substituted for mayonnaise, sour cream, cream cheese, and cottage cheese, in some recipes.
3. As a Dressing Base
Yogurt makes an excellent base for salad dressings — one of my favorites is plain or Greek yogurt, half an avocado, a little lemon juice, a small amount of sugar to sweeten, and freshly ground black pepper. Then blend until smooth, and pour a little over crunchy salads.
You could also try adding chopped cucumber, garlic, and mint to Greek or regular yogurt — really delicious, and a great accompaniment to chicken, beef or lamb.
Whatever you do, now that you know the benefits of Greek yogurt and regular yogurt, make sure you add it to your diet.
