Greek Yogurt

Do’s:

  • Do substitute Greek yogurt for buttermilk or heavy cream, two things you might not readily have in your fridge (who has buttermilk in their fridge?) Just water it down slightly to match the consistency.
  • Do put it in your ice cream maker, it freezes faster and creamier than regular yogurt. Plus the healthy bacteria will even survive a freezing!
  • Do be aware of the temperature. The longer your Greek yogurt is out of the fridge the thinner it will appear. A stint in the fridge will thicken it back up again, so give it a chill before you deem it ruined.

Do marinate! This is once instance where Greek yogurt’s clinginess is a good thing.

Do replace sour cream cup for cup in muffin and coffee cake recipes

Replace cream cheese with Greek yogurt in cheesecakes
