Simple Superfood Recipes: Greek Yogurt

This is one of a few collections of easy superfood recipes I created. All the recipes use common, natural ingredients.

Greek yogurt can make a delicious, low-fat superfood substitute for sour cream, mayonnaise, milk, cream, cream cheese, and oil and butter (for instance, in baked goods). Using Greek yogurt instead of milk or water to cook oatmeal, or in a smoothie, produces an extra-creamy and extra-high-protein result. Greek yogurt is also great in marinades, for its flavor and to keep the meat moist.

Greek yogurt is made by straining regular yogurt to remove the whey, which makes it thick and creamy. Without the whey, there is a lot more protein. Greek yogurt is more expensive than ordinary yogurt because of the work involved in removing the whey, and because it takes 3 to 4 times as much milk to make Greek yogurt as regular yogurt. Greek yogurt has a tangy taste and a consistency like sour cream, and even the no-fat varieties taste rich.
