6 Smart Ways to Jass Up Greek Yogurt
How do you make Greek yogurt taste better? I'm obsessed with salsa. I add it to tuna, use it in place of salad dressing, and spoon it onto my egg scrambles. So it was only a matter of time until I tried stirring some salsa into plain fat-free Greek yogurt. Well, the results were fantastic! It makes a yummy dip that's equal parts zesty and creamy. Perfect with cut veggies and baked tortilla chips. You can also use it in any place you'd use standard salsa, like as a topping for healthy Mexican dishes.
Tip: Try it with all sorts of salsa: chunky, spicy, verde, black bean & corn, and more!
Ice Cream Toppings
Start with fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt or the plain kind with a no-calorie sweetener packet mixed in. Then sprinkle with decadent stuff like chopped baking chips (chocolate, peanut butter, or butterscotch), shredded sweetened coconut, sprinkles, and light caramel dip. Just don't add them all at once! Toppings like these bring a dessert feel to a protein-packed snack.
Tip: Give yourself a 50-calorie limit for the toppings, and add fresh fruit to make it more filling.
Avocado is a great source of healthy fats, but it's easy to overdo it. Make a little go a long way by mixing it into Greek yogurt for a delicious dip. It's like a fat-slashed guac swap! I love it with baby carrots and jicama sticks.
How-To: Mash up 2 ounces (about 1/4 cup) and stir into 1/4 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt. Season to taste with salt, garlic powder, and chili powder. (1/2 of the recipe, about 3 tbsp.: 63 calories, 4g fat).
Fresh fruit is obviously fantastic, but freeze-dried fruit is an unexpected and amazing treat. It’s crispy, flavorful, and low in calories. A 1/4-cup serving has just around 25 calories. Plus, there are tons of great flavor combos, so you can enjoy whatever you’re craving at the moment: tropical fruit, apple 'n banana, mixed berry, and more!
Heads-Up: Don't confuse this with traditional dried fruit, which is much more calorie dense. That stuff has around 100 calories per 1/4 cup.
Ranch Dressing/Dip Seasoning Mix
Ranch dips and dressings are often loaded with fat, and the serving size is typically just 2 tablespoons. Turn Greek yogurt into an amazing guilt-free ranch dip with a generous serving size, perfect for parties or everyday eating. Try it with red pepper strips and cucumber spears.
How-To: Stir 1 1/2 tablespoons ranch dressing/dip mix into 1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt. That’s it! (1/4th of recipe, about 1/4 cup: 42 calories, 0g fat)
Low-Sugar Fruit Preserves
This is one of my favorite ways to infuse fun fruity flavor into plain fat-free Greek yogurt. Add a tablespoon of low-sugar preserves, stir it in, and you’ve got a customized snack. Try low-sugar apricot or grape. You can even mix flavors.
