5 Interesting Dessert Recipes Using Yogurt
So you want something sweet but don't want all the sugar? Try using scrumptious yogurt as a wholesome ingredient in your favorite desserts. The creamy possibilities are endless with these 5 yogurt-based dessert recipes.
Healthy and full of protein, Greek yogurt is all the rage whether you’re eating breakfast, lunch or a healthy snack. But don’t stop there! With a little imagination, yogurt can make a true splash in dessert.
Key Lime Pie
Key lime is a popular yogurt flavor and no wonder – it’s a cool and tangy taste that moves easily into dessert items. Fill a graham cracker crust with a blend of 2 8-ounce (225 gram) key lime yogurt containers and 8 ounces (225 grams) of softened cream cheese for a fast dessert.
Sugar-Free Raspberry Pie
Yogurt maintains its healthful reputation in this dessert. Fold in a large carton of plain Greek yogurt with liquid sugar-free raspberry gelatin. When refrigerated, this combination will set nicely and you’ll have a two-ingredient, low-calorie dessert.
Fruit and Frozen Yogurt Cone
Get waffle cones, since their generous size will hold the yogurt and fruit nicely. Combine chopped fresh fruit with a bit of sugar and 1 cup (250 mL) of your favorite frozen yogurt. Scooped into waffle cones, it’s a creative and eye-catching dessert option.
Frozen Yogurt Pop
Combine plain yogurt with 1 cup (250 mL) of your favorite fresh fruit, cut into chunks. Pulse in blender until smooth. Spoon yogurt/fruit mixture into ice pop molds and freeze.
Frozen Yogurt Covered Strawberries
Here’s one to impress company and it’s especially good with the thicker Greek yogurt. Take a container of ripe strawberries (you can slice them in half if they’re large – your choice). Dip them in vanilla Greek yogurt. Place the yogurt-covered berries in a plastic container lined with parchment paper and freeze. When company arrives, set them out for a cool, refreshing treat!
