A good clip on the many ways you can include Greek yogurt in your diet.

We use the plain Greek yogurt all the time - instead of sour cream, addition to soups instead of cream, addition to quick breads for moisture so I can cut down on the fat ingredient. I add a little almond extract and Stevia to plain Greek yogurt and use it as a topping for pudding and other desserts. I add some lemon zest and lemon extract and eat it with blueberries for breakfast.

My husband is diabetic and has to watch his carb intake. Regular sugar-free yogurt is still very high in sugar (milk sugar)....plain Greek yogurt is much lower in carbs and sugar.

I had no idea that Greek yogurt was so versatile! I'm going to try some of those recipes. They looked wonderful.

Without taking time to view the clip, can someone explain the difference between "Greek Yogurt" and any other plain yogurt in the cooler?

I buy Dannon All-natural plain, and I eat about a pint a week. Ingredients: Cultured Grade-A Milk. What am I missing?

Greek style yogurt is basically yogurt with the whey drained out of it so it's thicker and creamier than regular yogurt. I used to make my own back before it got popular by draining a carton of regular plain yogurt in the fridge overnight. I even bought a thing called a yogurt strainer that looks very much like a coffee filter. It's nice to be able to buy just the Greek yogurt though.

When I make 'gourmet' potato salad, I use it instead sour cream.
Recipe:
Fork tender potatoes cubed.
crumbled bacon
diced onions
pickled jalapeños
greek style plain yogurt

Mix items in a bowl and serve cold.

I'll let y'all decide how much of each ingredient to add.

Enjoy!

I have a yogurt strainer. I never buy greek yogurt because it's so much more expensive than straining the dannon. That little donvier strainer paid for itself a long time ago.

You can make it at home from scratch with the Dannon as a starter. I use this method:
