4 Greek Yogurt Recipes

4 Greek Yogurt Recipes

The best thing about yogurt is that it’s a healthy way to get your sweet treat on. And the best thing about GREEK yogurt is that it offers even MORE healthy benefits than traditional varieties. Add more calcium and protein to your diet, and in most cases reduce your saturated fat intake simply by using greek yogurt in these recipes to enjoy healthier main courses to desserts.

Note: For all of these recipes, we suggest using plain greek yogurt.

 

Greek Yogurt Alfredo Sauce

Greek Yogurt Alfredo Sauce

Alfredo sauce is delicious, but the premade, store bought varieties don’t supply much in the way of nutrients. Make your own greek yogurt alfredo sauce with the following recipe and enjoy the calcium, and protein boost, without compromising on flavor. (Makes 2 Servings)

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ teaspoons garlic powder
  • ¼ cup milk or water
  • ⅓ cup of plain greek yogurt
  • ¼ – ⅔ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 ounces of ISOPASTA, cooked

Directions:

  1. Over medium heat, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter
  2. Stir in the garlic powder and milk (or water)
  3. Remove mixture from heat and let it cool for two to three minutes
  4. Use a whisk to mix in the greek yogurt
  5. Put the parmesan cheese to the sauce and stir until cheese melts completely (you may have to reheat the sauce if it cooled too much)
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste
  7. Pour over ISOPASTA and enjoy

Peanut Butter Apple Dip

Peanut Butter Apple Dip

Apples with peanut butter is one of my all time favorite healthy snacks. You get all of the vitamins from the apples and the protein and healthy fats from the peanut butter. Plus the flavor combination is outstanding. To make your snack feel a little bit more like dessert though, try out this dip recipe. (Makes 2 Servings)

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp honey

Directions:

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl
  2. Eat immediately or store (covered) in the refrigerator

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? But with all of the sugar, and butter, and flour they aren’t exactly a healthy snack option. There’s good news though, with a single substitution you can make delicious chocolate chip cookies that are packed with protein, rather than saturated fat. Follow this recipe or make a few more substitutions to create an even healthier batch of cookies. (Makes Approximately 26 Cookies)

Ingredients:

  • 2 and ½ cups flour (use whole grain flour for healthier cookies)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs (leave out the eggs if you don’t plan on baking the cookies, and instead just want cookie dough to snack on)
  • 1 and ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ¾ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1 and ¾ cups chocolate chips (use cocoa nibs instead for healthy cookies)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Put parchment paper over a baking pan
  3. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together
  4. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and sugar
  5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir well
  6. Add the greek yogurt and vanilla stir
  7. Roll cookie dough into 2 inch balls and place on parchment paper
  8. Bake for 10 minutes
  9. Cool

Greek Yogurt Brownies

Greek Yogurt Brownies

Brownies are deliciously sinful. Unless of course you make them with healthy ingredients rather than high fat and high sugar ingredients. This recipe substitutes greek yogurt for butter, and natural sweetener for sugar. It also incorporates rolled oats, whose fiber content help keep these brownies filling, so you don’t need more than one at a time. Although they are so good, you may want to have more than one. (Makes 9 Brownies)

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup nonfat greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup skim milk
  • ½ cup Cocoa powder
  • ½ cup Old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup any natural or stevia based sweetener (should have the consistency of sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Grease an 8X8 square baking dish
  3. Put all of the ingredients into a food processor (or blender) and mix until you have a smooth consistency
  4. Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish
  5. Bake for 15 minutes
  6. Cool
