Feel like losing some weight or want to start eating more healthy? If you’re like me I’m always looking for ways to cut a few calories. Using greek yogurt in your cooking is a great way to start! Why? Because greek yogurt can be used as a substitute ingredient for lots of ingredients you use on a daily basis. Such as vegetable oil, mayonnaise, butter, creme fraiche, heavy cream, cream cheese, sour cream and milk.
Making a cheesecake? You’ll probably be using more than a cup of cream cheese. Replacing the cream cheese with greek yogurt will cut the total calorie count of the whole cheesecake by 658 calories. By using greek yogurt as a substitute ingredient you can keep making the recipes you love, but in a healthier manner.
