Get Your Greek On

I am a HUGE Greek Yogurt Fan (Yoplait is the brand is prefer.)

It is better for you than regular yogurt since it has twice the protein, and for those of you who go to the gym/workout this is an easy way to get that extra protein.

Greek (5.3 ounces, non-fat, plain)

  • Calories: 80

  • Cholesterol: 10 milligrams
  • Sodium: 50 milligrams
  • Sugar: 6 grams
  • Protein: 15 grams
  • Calcium: 15 percent on a 2,000-calorie diet

Regular (6 ounces, non-fat, plain)

  • Calories: 80
  • Total fat: 0 grams
  • Cholesterol 5 milligrams
  • Sodium: 120 milligrams
  • Sugar: 12 grams
  • Protein: 9 grams

I put granola with my greek yogurt, but was wondering…what else can I do with this yogurt and still make it tasty.

I found a couple of interesting recipes, one which included making chocolate icing with only yogurt and chocolate chips.
