Suggestions--Need to use up yogurt

DH bought me way too much yogurt. It's the Dannon family pack, multiple flavors. He didn't check the date and it's going to expire soon, anyone have suggestions on what I can do with it?

I've already used a bunch to make muesli, so getting tired of that. It's in 4 oz cups. Can I freeze it as is to have little frozen yogurt cups?

Thanks!

You can freeze it but the texture may suffer a bit. It'll still taste good.

Here's what I do with yogurt for breakfast:
Blenderize:
2 4-oz. yogurts (any flavor)
8-oz. juice (orange, pear, mango, cranberry...)
2 scoops protein powder (I use egg & milk protein powder, but soy would work too)
2 handfuls of frozen blueberries, or the equivalent of any other frozen fruit (peach, strawberry, raspberry...)
You can also add a fresh banana as well.

Enjoy!

HTC, here's one I've saved, but haven't had a chance to try yet.

Strawberry Yogurt Poundcake

Makes approximately 1 loaf cake or 8 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 carton (6 oz.) non-fat strawberry yogurt
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

In medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt, if desired. Set aside.

In large mixing bowl at medium speed, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, yogurt and extract until well blended. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add reserved flour mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, beating just until blended.

Spread evenly in greased and floured 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan. Bake in preheated 325F oven until cake tester inserted near center comes out clean, about 70 minutes. Cool on wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely.

Here's what NOT to use it for.....

Naked Yogurt Fighting Illegal


A Seoul appellate court on Friday sentenced an executive of a domestic milk company to a fine of about US$5,000 for staging a nude yoghurt fight to advertise a new product.

The bench ruled the performance was purely commercially motivated and had no artistic merit whatsoever. It said the show was obscene and sensational, adding it could find no justification for using nudity to achieve the goal of the campaign.

Yum. Yogurt wrestling. Has plenty of artistic merit for me. (Would that be raspberry?) Ken, I can tell you're related to Alix. The apple (yogurt) doesn't fall far from the tree.

Welcome to dc.

You can also drain it like you would vanilla or plain yogurt to make yogurt cheese (through cheese cloth, over a bowl, over night) ... pretty good to spread on english muffins the next day. Hint - don't do it on bagels ... it's still a bit more soft than the nonflavored is so tends to slip through the hole.
Enjoy!

I add yogurt (fruit or plain) to most of my muffin recipes to help cut down on the added oil. It works like a charm and you can come up with neat combos like strawberry muffins with peach yogurt or white chocolate muffins with raspberry yogurt.

I'm not a milk drinker ~ but I love LOVE yogurt with granola. You earn bonus points for adding fresh fruit!

Yogurt + granola also safely takes care of that sweet tooth craving for me as well.
