4 Awesome Ways to Eat More Greek Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt has more protein, is richer, and has less sugar than regular yoghurt, which is why it's such a great addition to any diet. The flavor is stronger, and it's smoother and creamier in your meals. Here are 4 snazzy ways to add it into your recipes:

Smoothie

Instead of using milk or regular yoghurt for your smoothies, use Greek yoghurt for a thicker, silkier drink. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="490"] Source: keepinitkind.com[/caption] Recipe:

  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • Olive oil

Salad Dressing

Instead of going with Ranch or Caesar, make your own creamy salad dressings with Greek yoghurt. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Source: thegalleygourmet.com[/caption] Recipe:
