One of the easiest ways I can turn a recipe or meal around and make it a little healthier is to substitute Greek Yogurt for sour cream. I do this with dips, guacamole, chili, burritos and more.
The nice thing about a plain Greek Yogurt is that it is thick, and tastes slightly sour like sour cream. During the holidays last year, no one could tell that I had used yogurt in my recipes and they raved about how much better the dishes were compared to the previous year. You can learn how to make your own Greek Yogurt at home here.
Do you use Greek Yogurt as a substitute for sour cream? What’s your favorite recipe to use it in?
Tip: Sometimes I will even use Greek Yogurt as a substitute for mayonnaise and cream cheese!
