When I was titling this post just now, "Greek Yogurt Style" lead me to almost making a "Gangnam Style" joke. I'll spare you. We're all over that, right?
So here's the thing: Greek yogurt is, by far, one of my favorite foods in the world. I do all kinds of stuff with it. I eat it. I bathe in it. I throw it at the dog. I... you get the point. Also, I'm lying. But I do absolutely adore it. Bonus: greek yogurt is a fantastic source of protein for when you're all meated-out.
It's really very versatile. You can use it in place of mayo and sour cream just about anywhere. You can use it to replace some fat and/or dairy in your baking. Hell, you can even replace simple "icing" and "frosting" applications with it. What's not to love? Savory ... sweet ... Greek yogurt really did come from Adonis, I'm convinced.
If you're curious, Fage is my favorite Greek yogurt brand. (It's pronounced "fa-yeh.")
Cinnamon Almond Greek Yogurt Dip
- 1/4-1/2 cup greek yogurt (whole, low, or no fat. I used 1/2 cup)
- 1-2 TBSP almond butter (I used sugar free)
- 1-2 TBSP unsweetened Vanilla Almond Coconut Milk (or regular milk, heavy cream, half & half, etc)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 10-15 drops liquid stevia (or any sweetener of your choice, to taste)
Combine all ingredients. Mix well. Refrigerate if you want it extra cold. That's it!
This is a great dip for so many things - apples, pears, pretzels, waffles, bananas, (okay, any fruit, really), shortbread.. Your imagination is the limit. Me? I like dipping my spoon in it. That's all I really need. I add the apples to make myself feel better about it.
Note: There are times I will include nutritional information and number of servings. This is not one of those times. Due to the ease of adjusting ingredients and amounts, there is no way to give you a one-size-fits-all list of macros. Next time!
