Greek Yogurt Treat

I did this tonight:

A scoop of Greek Yogurt
1/2 tsp of fresh orange zest (it had been sitting for a few hours and was from a Navel orange, so was moist)
1+ tsp of fresh orange juice
Splash of maple syrup (or maybe a wee bit more than a splash)

I topped the scoop of yogurt with the orange zest, juice, and syrup. Oh, yummy. I want to make ice cream that tastes like this.

So, besides using Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream in recipes, how do you like to eat Greek Yogurt?

I like honey drizzled on it.

With strawberries and little vanilla.

I have been making my own--much cheaper than buying it.

I love it topped with pomegranate arils, chopped walnuts, rolled oats, and a drizzle of honey. It's my all-time favorite breakfast parfait, and a fairly(not prefectly) balanced small meal/snack to boot.

I like my plain greek yogurt topped with walnuts and drizzled with honey. I am obsessed with greek yogurt now. I get the big 2 lb. tub of Chobani at BJ's.

I need to find more uses for it.

When I was young I didn't really like yogurt, I was always expecting it to taste like pudding because the picture on the cup looked like pudding, but then it wasn't pudding!

Josie, use your regular yogurt recipe (I use whole milk, because it makes a thicker yogurt, but I don't think that matters.)

After your yogurt has set, line a colander with a clean, damp tea towel, or several layers of cheesecloth, and set it in a large bowl. Dump the yogurt in and leave it overnight. In the morning, you will have lovely Greek yogurt, less tart than regular yogurt, and with higher protein and lower carbs. I understand that some folks use the leftover liquid in the bowl for bread making. My dogs like it.

The tea towel will peel off of the yogurt, so that is not as messy as it might seem.

If you find that your yogurt is too thick, whisk some of the liquid back in.

I have found that a coffee filter works well for this type of thing.
