I use it to bake with. I make muffins, banana breads, I use it in my asparagus soup as well as salads such as chicken or tuna. You could also add a little spice to it and use it as a sandwich spread.

FYI: One very nice benefit of Greek yogurt is that it has considerably more protein than regular yogurt.

Thanks everyone!
There is some great stuff here. I would love to try it as tartar sauce but can't cook fish as long as Dad lives with us as he is very allergic to fish and seafood and I have been making dips to go with my veggies as snacks.

It is really to know that it is high in protein.

I will report back any of my experiments. I have over 2 litres of the original 4 litres (remember Costco size LOL) so I now have a varieties of uses. And keep them coming. I would really be interested in the cheesecake recipe if anyone knows it.

Thanks again!

How about making frozen yougurt? Add some fruit, sweetener, etc... put it in an icecream maker and have an only slightly sinful treat?

Oh, Janet, you know the right buttons to push!!! We have some blueberries and blackberries to use up and I have some agave bleu syrup. I am sure glad we keep the ice cream drum in the freezer!

My favorite breakfast treat (or if you exercise, a great post-workout recovery treat-protein, a bit of simple sugar for replenishing glycogen stores, with some fiber and a bit of fat for staying power):
1/3 cup Greek yogurt topped with rolled oats, pomegranate seeds (or any other slightly tart berry if you can't get pomegranate right now), chopped walnuts, and a drizzle of honey.

Oh let me know how it turns out! I got one of those ice cream makers this fall and haven't tried it yet. Frozen Yogurt sounds like a good thing to try first.

I'm not an Ice Cream fan, I use mine for sorbets. Any crushed fruit and juice.

Dave, Janet, Fiona, everyone!

I have a brand new favourite snack of all time!

I took 500 grams of the Greek yoghurt and added whole blackberries and blueberries plus 1 teaspoon of blue agave syrup. I put it in the ice cream machine and let it go for 25 minutes. While it was still soft enough to stir, I swirled a couple of tablespoons of seedless no sugar added strawberry raspberry jam, put it in one of my ice cream containers (square litre sour cream containers that are perfect for this) and froze it for about 2 hours.

This is healthy and absolutely decadent at the same time. The consistency of the Greek style yoghurt is perfect for freezing.

Once again Janet, thanks!

I am still working on other ideas you have all so nicely provided and will report back.
