Kitchen hacks: Greek Style Yogurt, 17 different ways! | EasiYo NZ

If you’re anything like us, you’ll love starting the day with some classic Greek Style Yogurt – either blended into a smoothie or served with fruit or muesli. But did you know that this flavoursome household favourite is far more versatile than you think?

We’ve collated some of our top yogurt hacks below, so you can enjoy even more Greek Style goodness throughout the day. We hope you enjoy trying something new, and surprising your friends and family with some tasty alternatives to your regular repertoire.

 

Let’s go!

  1. Swap your mayo for creamy plain yogurt. We love it in a wrap, or as a dipping sauce!
  2. Try it as a dressing (potato salad, anyone?)  You can substitute direct, so one cup of mayonnaise = one cup of yogurt.
  3. Enjoy the ultimate creamy mashed potatoes by adding a dollop of yogurt to your mash. 
  4. Whip up a quick and easy pizza dough with yogurt instead of yeast.  
  1. Shake up your nachos with yogurt instead of sour cream.
  2. Add yogurt to your pancake recipe for the ultimate fluffy stack.
  3. Dip seasonal berries in yogurt, and then freeze them for tasty treats the kids will love. 
  1. Impress your friends with a homemade dip – we love this easy recipe!
  2. Use it as cream cheese icing substitute (and try this delicious honey yoghurt cake while you’re at it!).
  1. Love fried chicken? Make a batch of your own using yogurt as a buttermilk replacement. One cup buttermilk = two-thirds of a cup of Greek Style yogurt + one quarter-cup of butter.
  1. Add to soup for a creamy, tangy finish. Try this delicious bacon & kumara recipe to get you started.
  2. Have it on the side of your favourite sweet treat. A dollop of yogurt goes perfectly with cake, brownies, pie or warm jam scones!
  3. Stir it up with cucumbers, garlic, and dill for an awesome homemade Tzatziki sauce.
  4. Add it to your milk for soaking overnight oats or muesli. You’ll get extra protein and creaminess.
  5. Dish out a dollop of Greek Style Yogurt to cut the spice in any Indian takeout meals.
  6. Whip it with eggs for a fluffier, more satisfying scramble.
  7. Pasta night coming up? Try our easy creamy fettuccini – without the cream!
