A handful of @cabotcheese’s favorite #GreekYogurt #recipes that are just perfect for #Spring! http://ow.ly/LXxWu
There is so much to love about Cabot Greek Yogurt. Its thick, rich, creamy texture and tangy taste make it a perfect way to start your day – mixed with cereal, whipped into a fruit filled smoothie or plain, with a drizzle of honey.
But the charms of Greek yogurt don’t stop there. So many of your favorite dishes can be made even more delicious as well as more nutritious when you substitute Cabot Greek Yogurt for higher-fat ingredients like sour cream, mayonnaise, butter, or oil.
Cabot has created this helpful Greek Yogurt Substitution Chart to guide you as you amplify the taste and health benefits of some of your family’s favorite dishes. Try taking a gradual approach when substituting yogurt in familiar dishes. For instance, you can start with one-third yogurt to two-thirds mayo in your tuna salad, gradually increasing the yogurt to mayo ratio as your family gets used to the change.
Whether you’re preparing healthy snacks or creating great meals, Cabot Greek Yogurt is the perfect addition to culinary creations from nutrition-packed smoothies to light, wholesome salad dressings, from marvelous meats and casseroles to noteworthy desserts.
